    at the profile of our "Business guy" Ashley, there is a link at the very bottom saying:
    http://xenforo.com/community/members/ashley.4/

    "Find all threads by Ashley"

    clicking onto this link gives an error "No results found":
    http://xenforo.com/community/search/member?user_id=4&content=thread

    So if a certain user has not written any Threads yet, then the link named "Find all threads by Ashley" should not be available / visible. No point of having somebody clicking on a link when in fact there is no content available.

    It would not be wise to perform a check like that every time to show/hide that link.

    Then novice users would be looking all over for the link. I'd prefer to have them look for themselves and be told "this user has no threads" rather than totally hide the link and confuse the hell out of them.

    I agree, but they must have removed it, or are working on it because I don't see that phrase anymore.
    I'm an idiot, its on the info tab.

    Personally, I'd rather see the link, and get the "no results" to tell me that they haven't posted, than to not see a link, and not know the feature existed.

    Oh, but there's something design wise, I'd like the see. Maybe use the same blue bar at the bottom of the "postings" tab on the"info" tab? Maybe it wouldn't look as nice?

    If you hide "find threads" users would wonder "hey, I can't find threads?" rather than "oh, this user must not have any".

    I'd rather see a counter listed, but I understand that's another query.
