This action is meant as a module to integrate the MyChanges action into the UserAdmin tool.
To use it as a standalone action simply add:
{{userchanges user="UserName"}} in the page body.
 


This is an upgraded version of the MyChanges action. It allows not only to display pages edited by current user but also by any other registered user specified either via a user action parameter or via a user GET variable.

Save the code below as actions/userchanges.php.

Current version: 0.4

 * or the specified user is invalid, an error message is printed. If no user parameter
 * is specified or the specified user is invalid, and the current user is logged in,

Hi,

I get the following message when using the useradmin action. The userfeedback and userpages work fine, but the userchanges and usercomments actions do not.

Warning: includebuffered(actions/userchanges.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wikka\wikka.php on line 163

Warning: includebuffered(): Failed opening 'actions/userchanges.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;c:\php4\pear') in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\wikka\wikka.php on line 163

It looks like your php include_path doesn't include the wwwroot directory. The information to set this for Windows is here (toward the bottom of the page): http://us3.php.net/manual/en/configuration.changes.php

Wouldn't it be better to use 'my' recoding of MyChangesAction? Actually I think with a little tweaking of both the userchanges-action could just include the mychanges-action. That way improvement of the latter one would automatically improve the former one without the need to update it. (keyword code-reusage)

TimoK, what do you mean by 'your' recoding ?
