Search Members!

Post by yessica » Mon Jun 18, 2007 9:42 pm

I just wanted to post a possible suggestion.. not sure where to put it..

Well sometimes when I want to search a particular member I have to sort through the list of members or look to see where they have posted. Could there possibly be somewhere where you can just search the members via a name instead?

The general search (second button at the very top of the page under the title) allows you to search by author, is that what you mean?

Well not really. If you don't type their name exactly right then you can't find them.

If you read a post but couldn't find it again and remembered that the author's name began with say an 'A', you still wouldn't be able to find them, or would you? I'm not sure..

It depends how much of their name you can remember. If you can remember that it started with A, then you can use the * as a 'wildcard' - i.e. search for a* and it will find all posts from names beginning with A. Alternatively you could just look at the member list and order it alphabetically.
