Link to user's blogs on the userpage within SocialProfile
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Is there a chance of having a "Blogs" in the "personal tools" section which would list all your blogs, and/or in the profile section of another user next to their avatar with all the "Discussion", "Contributions", "Edit Count", etc have a list of their blogs as well?
A link to Special:Prefixindex/User_blog:$wgUserName should work

You mean $wgUserProfileDisplay['articles'] = true; ? (you know where to find a live example, see the "Blogs" section below "Recent activity")

Also the whole User blog: namespace is a Wikia-ism adopted by Brickipedia for whatever reason that is beyond my comprehension; BlogPage by default puts the blogs into the Blog: namespace and this isn't currently configurable (and I quite honestly don't see why it would need to be, do we really have so much blog activity that we somehow explicitly need to mention that it is a user blog (as opposed to...a site blog?) post written by user Foo?).

While I don't actively have a use for that functionality, I think it's worth supporting, especially if it's hacked in somewhere else for someone else's site. Having both options available probably makes the extension itself more appealing for various use cases.

This is no longer a thing, apparently.

And I can't find a special page that can do such listing. And there's no such tracking of "blogs of user X", apart from the category, which anyone can remove from the page anyway. While very flexible, this is also extremely fragile.

Sure it is.

That's because there currently isn't such a special page or any other mechanism besides the "Blogs by user X" category. As always, patches are very much welcome. :-)

Okay, I was looking for the $wgUserProfileDisplay['articles'] on the SocialProfile extension... Also, I forgot to run jobs, so the user category wasn't populated and hence nothing was displayed.
