    Hi all,

    I am using Articles 4.2.6 and am wondering if there was a way to filter the Article List to show those posts only from a specific author? I have created individual user pages through a DNN skin and passing the user's display name, first name and last name through query string parameters, and would love to show just that user's articles. I believe this could be pulled off through the Custom Select filter, but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get this done. I looked at the Articles_GetArticles procedure but don't really know how I could pull a query string variable into this custom select statement to filter.

    In other words, if I could have the Custom Select pull all articles as they do now, just filtered by author = query string variable "name" that would do it. Seems simple enough... Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Kevin

    Hi David,

    Have you had any chance to think about this question? Sorry for the push, it is holding up completion on a project and my client is getting a little antsy. Thanks so much!

    Kevin,
    There is no easy way to filter by Author at this time. I think it is a worthwhile addition so I've added this to our list of features to add but this is the first time it has been requested so it may take awhile before we get to it. If you want to sponsor the implementation, we should be able to get it done this week.

    The quickest way to implement it would be by adding some kind of QueryString driven token replacement to the Custom Select functionality.
