A way to see who posted?

    Is there a way to quickly and easily see who posted in a particular thread? On vB you can click on the number of posts in a thread, which brings up a window containing a list of who posted in that thread and how many times (see image (I've blanked out usernames for their privacy)). Is there something similar on xf that I just haven't found yet?

    That feature doesn't exist.

    okay thanks :) Does that mean there's no way of finding that info?

    It's just quite useful when you have access to certain forums based on meeting certain posting requirements, which we check regularly...

    It'd involve adding an extra query to each thread listing page which isn't ideal really, unless you did it via AJAX.

    It'd be pretty easy to create an add-on to see who's posted in a thread on the thread page... if that's suitable?

    That might be useful - if it said how many times they posted in that thread?

    I'll have a play with the templates and see if I can get something for you Jo.

    I figured you could put some kind of thread summary at the top of the page.

    I never realized vB did that. Now I see it.
