I have a fully integrated profile search... I cutomized it for my site but it could be customized to return any profile fields as the defaults... say you wanted username, real name, age, and location as the defaults that the results will be listed with, that can be done easily (extra fields will work, too). You can search any profile field... if there were a "has gallery" option, I'm sure we would add that too.
User Search Feature: Type in "new york" and search for records with "new york" anywhere in the profile... you can also select a field to search within.
What we don't have, is a x # of results per page feature... so if you get like 100 results, it takes a second or two to render the table.
We should almost continue this conversation in a new thread, but Mujammad, I like your profile search... but it wouldnt satisfy me. /forum/images/icons/wink.gif[/] I want users to select among several fields at the same time, not just one at a time. Something like what I suggest here. /forum/images/icons/grin.gif[/]
Yeah, there's always more that could be added... we only spent about 2 hours on that feature so what got done was the basics to satisfy the need. /forum/images/icons/smile.gif[/] I'm all for filtered searching if/when it gets in the public release.
It's a separate program.... they need to make posts on the photopost side of things. The membername and login information transfers over, and when they go from Threads to PhotoPost, the cookie recognizes them in PhotoPost and they are already logged in there.
Posts on the PhotoPost side of things DO increase the post count... although you can't search photopost posts from the threads side of things.
Clicking on a username in PhotoPosts brings up the threads profile...and clicking login or register on the photopost side of things brings you to the appropriate place in Threads. It really works well.
If anyone wants to check it out...PM me and I'll send you a URL and login. Warning The photos are adult in nature. /forum/images/icons/blush.gif[/]
The users like it.. the big complaint is that the new post indicator is now non existant. The "light bulb effect" and new post number for each forum was really a help so people could tell when new pics had been posted in a forum.
The best I was able to do is hack it so that the photopost forums come up by default sorted by date. But they have no idea what they have already viewed or not viewed.
