#2490 new defect

Forums should have a way to search for posts made by a particular user

Description

After the upgrade to bbPress 2.x, there's no longer a way to quickly view all user's posts (including archived, pending, and spam).

If someone was flagged for moderation, you can only try to guess the reason, without any way to verify it.

Add ?view=all to the users topics or replies section on their profile page

@SergeyBiryukov The ticket titled refers to "search', the description refers to "view", if t is view then does the above ?view=all work for this?

Per #1984 this should probably be more discoverable and shown as an option for moderators on user profiles.

That's helpful, thanks! #1984 is focused on posts though, let's use this ticket to add a "+X hidden" link to user profiles if there are any hidden topics or replies.

The ticket titled refers to "search', the description refers to "view"

I think we need both. Previously, I could filter posts by author in the admin, and then search for something specific. In the new admin, there's no way to filter by author, at least not on Rosetta forums.

I've just found out that constructing the URL manually works, but there should be a proper UI for this:

/support/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=topic&author_name=sergeybiryukov&s=test
/support/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=reply&author_name=sergeybiryukov&s=test

Adding a wp-admin link for a user in the sidebar of the /replies and /topics pages would also be helpful.

wordpress.org/support/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=reply&author_name=user-name
wordpress.org/support/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=topic&author_name=user-name

This helps when you need to bulk spam all the posts of a spammer.

Thanks, the action proposed in #1960 would be even more helpful for removing all spammers posts. I'm all for it, as we currently do this manually with bulk edit in the admin.

I still think having these links is a good idea. The search form on these (user posts) admin pages should search in author posts only if the author or author_name query var is set.
