Support » Plugin: BP Profile Search » no results with search on name field

    Hi Andrea,
    Sorry to bother you again! One of our members reported that they weren’t getting any results when they searched on the name field. I checked the settings for that field, tried disabling and re-enabling the plugin, and wasn’t able to get it working. It returns no results no matter what the query is (even if there should be an exact name match). The search mode is set to ‘Is Like.’ I’m not sure, but I’m guessing the issue began after the last update to the plugin. I know I had tested that field about a month ago and it was working. All of the other filters seem to be working fine (they are all set to ‘Match Any’).

    I can give you some login credentials on your website if that would be helpful. Thanks again for your help!

    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    The ‘is like’ mode requires wildcards to work, otherwise it’s equivalent to a perfect match request. The default mode is ‘contains’ that should do what everybody expects. For additional details you can see my page Search Modes.

    Hi Andrea,
    Great, that works! I must have had it set to ‘contains’ before and changed it without realizing it. Sorry for the hassle!
