I’m not sure why you retagged my topic as feature. I pressed CTRL+F and Discourse did something my browser wouldn’t do when I press CTRL+F.
The story behind this is simple, I wanted to search for all posts of a certain user. I wasn’t aware of the fact that you could filter by author by simply clicking their avatar in the topic summary.
However I still think that this should be included in the search function for the reason that the Discourse search does something different from what users (at least me) are expecting.
[Also, hiding all other posts isn’t exactly the same as being able to go through all posts from one author, you get more context (unhiding other people’s post in between basically undos the filter)].
