Easy way to see all user's contributions

    Question

  • I suggested this once but would like to suggest again - there should be an easy way to see all user's contributions when looking at user's profile - link to all the WiKi articles the user posted, all Gallery samples, all Blog articles.

    In particular, I am trying to find Olaf Helper's Gallery contributions because I'd like to reference one particular I know of, but I remember I spent quite an amount of time recently trying to find it to no avail.

  • Nothing is wrong with asking questions, if you knew everything you wouldn't be a Moderator, you'd be an all-knowing superior being. 

     

    Anyway, I usually just click on sample and search for the users name. Can't find anything for Olaf, maybe you have the spelling wrong? But I found a few other people's contributions without a problem. Hope that helps

    --Figured it out, Olaf's contributions are in the technet gallery. Just search for his name here:  http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com

    once you find one entry and click it you can click on "View Samples" on his profile that comes up.

  • As you (now?) seem to be a Moderator in the two main "using the forums" forums, are you actually allowed to keep on asking questions here?

  • What seems to be the problem of Moderator's asking questions?

  • Thanks a lot for the help - I wish I remember what was the reason that prompted me to search :)

  • My opinion is that it should be done through the user profile. For example if you filter the users activity by "Forums" you get this:

    If you filter by gallery it should have "View All Samples" or something to that effect.

  • BTW, I found that I saved two of important contributions in 'My Favorites'. Should have looked there when I was searching.
