Hi Mark,

I was talking to Tony tonight and we were trying to figure out the member search. It doesn't seem very robust. Are there any advanced search options that can be activated? Right now it seems like you have to have a good idea of the login name you are looking for. Being able to search by location, real name, etc would be nice.

No rush on this. I am sure you have lots of items to work on already.

Thanks!

Ask and ye shall (sometimes) receive... :cool: Take a look at the Members menu and there should now be a member search option there. You can search by user name or location or home page. We only collect user name and location for all users, home Page is optional. There hasn't been a field for real names in the past but I've just added one for First Name under personal details that people can populate if they wish.

Partial string matches do work in all fields.

Thanks Mark,

That will help a lot I think. Tony was trying to find a member in a particular area of the country, so "location" is awesome. Partial string is always good for when us old guys can only remember, umm, ummm, what was I saying??? :)
