I also wish to paginate by mt:Actions.

But,There is no Argument “offset”,so maybe impossible?

Any way to limit this by blog_id? This doesn’t seem to respect the Multiblog settings to disallow a certain blog from multi-blog listings. The use case here is that there are certain blog blogs that are private, and don’t wanted “posted an entry” actions to display for those blogs.

I’m seeing a strange behavior with the default template “Profile View” on the local blog.

The results show all comments that the blog administrator approved - no matter if the blog admisnistrotor made no comments on that post.

Makes no sense to me - is this correct?

How would you make the Profile View ONLY show actions that the user actually produced?
