      Description

      From Using Moodle forums, http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=101805 , by Tony Hursh:

      "This lets you quickly find posts by a specific user in a specific forum (as opposed to all the user's posts in all forums). It's useful if you're grading based on forum participation and also in several other situations."

      +1 for it with setting to show/hide it.

      Ciao

          Eloy - Where do you think the option to hide it should appear? Would this option be per instance, course, site? If per instance would we have to modify the database? if so, obviously that would make it for 2.0. Let me know and I'll be happy to work on providing a patch. Peace - Anthony

          I have used this patch, and it surely would be helpful for instructors who are grading. I hope it will be added to core!

          IMO,

          global (module setting switch) - "show find user posts link" - could be enough, defaulting to "no", to follow current behaviour. That could be addressed safely for 1.9.x

          Then, for 2.0, and respecting the global switch, it could be introduced per instance. With new DB field in forum table and so on, yes.

          Ciao

          Here is a patch which implements this as Eloy describes (globally). I think this could be applied to 1.9 and HEAD with the possibility of considering the possibility of changing the setting from global to per instance. Peace - Anthony

          Here is a patch for HEAD. I just threw it in with the current version, some revision may be needed to make it is own version. Otherwise, I think it should be functional.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.

          This issue does seem to have some improved use for a teacher and since a patch is provided for POC, even though it is rather dated, it would be good if it could be considered as an improvement or new feature. Peace - Anthony
