Separate question and answer in profile

+8
−0

I have asked 7 questions and answered 2 questions. Sometimes I go to my profile to visit my old questions and answers. I notice that the answers and questions are grouped together. There's a tag for answers ([tag:Answer]) but it is still not easy to find an answer in the middle of other questions. So, I think it would be very helpful if Codidact separated question and answer in profile pages like SE. Then, people like me can find answers and questions easily.

Yeah, we definitely want to improve that aspect of the profile page. We want to allow you to break posts out by type and also by category -- you shouldn't have to dig through all your Q&A posts to find that one article you posted in the "resources" category.

Because we can now add new post types, we can't just bake in a list. (The profile page has this problem now in the right column, where it breaks down post counts and votes by type. New types don't show up there.) We'll need to figure out how to make that dynamic. Making the post-type "pseudo-tag" clickable would help, but it's not a complete solution (that one article might be way down on your list). We have some design work yet to do here, and then of course we have to actually implement it. :-)

(My current thinking is: categories and "all" as tabs within the list, reflecting the presentation of the categories themselves, and then checkboxes for all post types used on that community. This would let you find your meta answers, all Q&A posts, etc. We could show the counts next to those options. But we'll need to figure out how to present all that cleanly including on small viewports.)
