      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.
