    Searching for Articles by Author

    I am developing a Bio page on another site and would like to offer a single link to all my work on Canonfire.

    On my home page, I can see a list of all my articles, but I need to log in as myself to see that.

    I can't figure out how do do a search on articles (not fora posts) based on author so that I could post a link to the search page.

    Slightly related - I can no longer find the link to the 'top ten' lists.

    Top 20 link: http://www.canonfire.com/cf/modules.php?name=Top

    The Articles search function at the very top right of any CF! page has "Author" keyed to the admin that published the articles, unfortunately, not the actual authors. You might be able to use that search function to find what you are looking for though, and compile a link list. Would be nice if that search function could home in on user submissions, as that would probably work similar to the user profile "Find all post by [user]" feature, but for Articles.

    Alas, the software cannot be updated further (so I am informed) to take advantage of more recent added features without being replaced in its entirety, which would undoubtedly open a whole new can of worms.

    By logging out and then using the link you provided, I was able to get what I wanted - a link that anyone could use to see my submissions without having to access my home page.

    Perfect! I hadn't looked at a Personal Information page since the IP tag got dropped from forum posts (which was a year ago perhaps?). Glad that worked for you! Cool
