there is a spoiler tag mod for SMF so that should be easy enough.

2. In the old software, the "Search" function allowed a person to do a search of all of a particular member's posts without specifying a word to be searched for.  In other words, putting a name into the "by user" box and hitting "Search" would bring up all posts authored by that user.  I often found this helpful both for searching my own posts, and for other members'. The current settings require a particular word to be searched (and of course something vague like "the" is not acceptable).

I think the reason it doesn't have that function is because you can go to the member's list, find that user and click on the link to view all of their posts.  I'll keep and eye open for an easy way to modify the search though.

Excellent, thank you.
