cool, it works! thanks a lot Ryan!
I upgraded it on our students server already.
Great to hear that it’'s working well for you.
But wouldn’'t it be much more simple from a user kind
of view if there would be just one single input field
(and maybe some checkboxes to specify the query)?
I guess it would depends on what someone considers to be more simple. Part of the issue is that in order for someone to register an account on Messenger all that is required is a username, name and email are optional. As an example, if I’‘m looking for my friend “Joe Smith” and in the name search field I try entering “joe”, “smith” or even just “j” I won’‘t find him if his account was setup without a name, even if checkboxes were available. But, your point is well taken. A simple fix might be to expand the search instructions to include a note on what a user should do if they don’‘t find the person they’'re looking for.
Hope that helps,
