The user content search found on user profiles allows searching through a user's contributions, sorted by date or by relevance. However, when loading the RSS for sorted results (including &sort=... in the URL), there are no entries displayed in the RSS.
This is most likely an issue with the rewriting that is required to make ?rss&user=fritteritter and ?user=fritteritter&rss work properly. The no-results bug occurs not only on sorted results (which is the common use case) but when any parameter besides user is included in the RSS URL.
Thanks, this is somewhat minor but I am looking forward to the fix so I can update my HP RSS guide hub.
Thank you Larry! Also, while it isn't a bug, it would be nice to have a dropdown beside the search box in the header of that page when searching your own content which would allow you to choose between searching the site and searching only that user's content.
Currently it searches the entire site which somewhat inhibits user content searching. This requires people to change the URL or return to the profile page to pose another query.
Your SE team is quick I'm updating my RSS hub now since I see that the sorted feeds are fixed. Good work.

I thought I read the new rules about word count and Amazon links, etc. and I put in the time to fix every single hub that was on the list that HP emailed me. Apparently some hubs didn't make the list and now I'm getting about 2 emails a day telling me that a hub of mine was unpublished for...
