    Hi all

    Can anyone tell me how to change the query in the core classes file to search for usernames rather than display names please?

    This is so my users can search for members by the unique username rather than display name.

    Thanks very much

    Nope! I’ve come up with a partial work around that I’m trying to figure out. You know how you can choose to display certain numbers of members when you search? Well, I am going to have their usernames come up under their display name so both are shown. That way another member can find them either way even when there are several members of the same name. I have also disabled clicking on their name to view their profiles to help with privacy.

    If you come up with another solution can you let me know? This one is really bugging me!

    Cheers
