Menu that displays articles from a single user

Postby hitman47 » Tue May 15, 2018 1:29 pm

Hallo, i want to create a menu that will display articles from a single user. I want the logon user to be able to browse this menu and see only the articles he created. I want a MY ARTICLES menu.

Modules: Articles - Category

Create a module and use the "Filtering" options to set it for that use specifically.

You can use ACL so that module only displays for that user.

Check that the permissions are correct. If it's not public and you're not logged in you won't be able to see it.
