Can you take a look and help me find a solution to this one?[/list]
You already said you figured out how to change the egosearch so that it would display regular posts by post rather than topic. I haven't checked the code (and don't have time right now), but by I strongly suspect the reason you lose the drafts table when you change from display by topics to display by posts is that when you display by topics you use a different template than you use when you display by posts. So, if you want to try to do this yourself, check how the mod changes search_results_topics.tpl and then try to do the same for search_results_posts.tpl. Search_results_topics probably has one or more 'switches' that turns the draft table on and off and you would need to stick the same switch or switches in search_results.posts.tpl if you want to do egosearch by post and still retain the drafts.
Excellent suggestion, you sent me looking in the right place. It's all very very good now. Exactly the end result I wanted. As for a new topic saved as a draft not showing in the search result - for some reason, I can't duplicate that problem anymore and it's behaving the way it should. I have no other explanation for this one besides "a temporary moment of insanity" probably helped along by a stray bit or two.
Now, for another "new" scenario! Have you noticed that when a member creates a draft but has never posted before, the draft will NOT show up in the search result (by clicking on "Your posts and drafts")?
Mind you, this could turn out to be another one of those "temporary moments of insanity" or possibly one of my homemade hacks interferring in some way.
Thanks for your help, much obliged!
