Username filter is broken in personal messages if user has only replied once (PMs)


(Stefan Brand) #1

Hi everybody,

we are running v1.6.0.beta7 +16 on the Fairphone forum and since a short time I cannot filter posts in a PM by a user anymore by clicking on the profile picture.

When I click on a user’s profile picture, only the user card appears. Summarizing works as expected and I can also search posts in the PM using “user:username”.

Do you experience the same? Do you need further information?

Cheers, Stefan

You need to click twice, once to show the user card than again on the user card filter button. Is that not working for you?

Where are you clicking, as I’m able to on the iPad Air 2. Using the username on the post or the Topic Summary (not the invite list – invite list just redirects me to their profile)

No repro this works fine. Click or tap twice, once to open user card, again to filter (on the filter button on the user card that appears)

Hey, thanks for the heads up and thank you for moving the post to the correct category. As being a moderator on that other forum I know how frustrating it can be when users post in the wrong category all the time… :wink:

It might be that there is still a bug because I found some anomaly: When a user has multiple posts in that PM the filter button does appear:

(I love that I can copy-paste pictures into the post editor…! Thank you for implementing this!)

But when a user has only one post, the filter button is not there:

It can be quite cumbersome to find that user’s post in a PM with 123 replies, if you don’t know the search tag “user:username”.

I cannot check if filtering a single post by a user works here on meta because I haven’t written PMs here.
