If you are logged in you can view your own projects at http://www.webmaster-forums.net/projects/mine

I have not been able to discover a URL to display a particular user's projects - the only options are "mine" "recent" "popular" plus (note the first one - project - only produces one result)

project

Work in progress

Some practical work has been completed on the project. ...

Just an idea

Let's say for example I want to view all of Jeeve's projects, or send someone a link to mine...

In addition, I have found a few advanced search operators that are not working http://www.webmaster-forums.net/twf-feedback-and-announcements/advanced-...

Yes, all the user's posts are included in the Tracker

I can also view my own projects as a discrete list at http://www.webmaster-forums.net/projects/mine when I am logged in

However, I am looking for a URL to display a particular user's projects for another user or anonymous (eg, I want to post a link to my projects on my web site, send the URL by email etc)

There should definitely be a page to do that, but there isn't currently. Sad

The long answer is that we need to make some changes to user profiles (and that will be part of it), but I'm short on time, and we really need Drupal 6 to do everything we want.

So, sadly there's no way to do it at the moment, but it's certainly on my to-do list. I'm looking forward to the day when I have time to do some upgrading of user profiles and projects. Smiling

Here's a URL for you decibel.places: http://www.webmaster-forums.net/projects/1018260

That's an undocumented, 'secret' feature that I just made. Smiling

Thanks, Jeeves! SmileyCentral.com

I posted the link on netsperience

However, the menu link for my Portfolio -- http://www.webmaster-forums.net/projects/mine no longer works - not a biggy but annoying...

so "1018260" is my UID?

http://www.webmaster-forums.net/user/1018260 redirects to my user profile http://www.webmaster-forums.net/users/decibelplaces

How do I find other users' UID?

Ooops, I shouldn't have used a different URL, the Views are interfering with each other. Smiling

I've changed the URL for your projects to: http://www.webmaster-forums.net/projects/user/1018260

Yes, 1018260 is your username. Not sure how you can find other people's UID's. I get them by looking at the link to the Edit tab on the profile. You might be able to find a link with the UID in it, or simply ask the user to look at their own edit tab, and get the UID. Smiling

Erm, have I missed something?
The projects are listed in user's profiles. And a link is available to them.

Yes, greg.

I want to display a page of my (or another member's) aggregated projects, and Jeeves' link works.

Your link only displays an individual project.

Did you just copy and paste kazimmerman's post then change it a bit?

But he wants one permanent link where all of his own (or anyone's, for that matter) projects would be listed. The link you gave is to an individual project page, not the projects listings for a user. Wink

True!
As Jeeves says, it is on the "todo", so I was giving the only option available atm.

An alternative is to put your projects on your own website, code, images etc, if it's for clients or visitors to view. Although you've probably thought of that.
If it's for another member here then they can view yours from the projects page, although it's not ideally what you wanted.

Perhaps my 1000th post could have been more helpful and inspired in some way Doh!
