Member Search broken! (7 posts)

    very nice Plugin. Easy to understand and handle.
    I got 1 Issue though...

    I cannot search for users via the search on the Members page. It simply does nothing at all (loads couple of seconds then shows the original member-list).

    If this could be solved in a further release, big thumbs up!

    LG, Sunny

    I also have this problem with buddypress 1.7 and wordpress 3.5.1.

    When this plugin is enabled it stops the members search from working, i.e. you can search for a known member and it simply redisplays the full members list.

    It also prevents the 'requests' tab from displaying the pending friend requests.

    These are the two issues that I know of and disabling this plugin solves the problem.

    Does anyone have a fix for this issue as otherwise the plugin is perfect for my needs.

    I have just been playing about with the settings in the plugin and have discovered that if you turn off the members sorting in the last tab it all works as expected.

    There is some conflict in the members sorting.

    Hope this helps someone.

    still a problem. I need to be able to have the member sorting turned on for alphabetical. anyone else find a fix yet?

    You can add a bit of code to the 'bp_has_members()' function in the members-loop to make it show the list in alphabetical order. '&type=alphabetical'.

    Find the members folder and the members-loop.php file.

    The second line of php that starts with if(bp_has_members..., add the above piece of code so that it looks like this:

    if ( bp_has_members( bp_ajax_querystring( 'members' ).'&type=alphabetical' ) ) :

    That sorts it out for me, as I can then have the members sorting turned off in the plugin as the code in the loop sets up the alphabetical sorting.

    Hope this helps.

    hi Nix255! that helps, however it's alphabetizing by username instead of last name like the plugin would do for me. any tips? thanks in advance!!

    I'm not sure how you would do that, but I've found some code which I think you need to add to the functions.php file of your theme which may help.
    Have a look at this link:
    Hope it helps.
