    Ok I think I figured it out This does not work if you pick your CITY from a custom field drop down (SELECT BOX) Lets say I have 120 cities all over the world in a drop down. If I create a new field like attached then this works and the drop down search appears on the search page But if I want to search for the current custom field that exists then it is not possible. I seem to also have to do a manipulation where I first have to select TEXT as the option then go down to the Search Behavior and select ALL results THEN go back and change TEXT to SELECT BOX In essence at the moment all our members have a custom field based on a CITY drop down. They select the city from a list we provide The current option does not seem to allow the search from existing custom profile fields drop downs Members like to be able to search for pictures of other members and see if they know these people in their city Nothing about dating many members are way passed that stage also since we organize tons of events people like to see who they are going to meet at those events like concerts, diners, conventions etc. If I am going to go play tennis with some people I d like to see what they look like so that I recognize them...nothing about dating. Its not about searching for profile and try to date people, it is about making a community of real people. The communities are private and members like to feel secure. I don t know...seems pretty normal to me

    I think I found where this is...it appears when you select a new custom profile field If I look at a current profile field the option for search behavior is not there

    Well I don t think this works You can t search profiles that HAVE a profile picture which for a community is mind boggling For the custom fields as you posted above I only get the Display format and NOT the search behavior option...how do you get that one? I tried on a custom field that is CITY to see if the search allows a search to all people living in CITY but is still isn t displaying in the search options

    I m going to add to this topic because this functionality is crucial for our sites too I was waiting since last october thinking that the reason the search members using custom fields was removed was because IPS was working on a better version but now I realize the option was simply removed. The current system does not allow our members to sort by which ones have a photo only (why was this removed?). I would also for example would like to find all the people living in my city (custom field) but I cant because the search does not allow this. I struggle to understand what could have been the reasons to remove these options in 4. I see that there is a memberlist mod that is being sort of crowdfunded. I may add $100 to it if Adriano can add filtering by custom fields but I really feel that there is no reason why this is not a default option when it had been one for so long. Please add back filtering members search with custom fields
  5. like the previous version was. There is no way to search by members who have a photo or from a custom profile field which is all our community is based on. Is anything being done or what is the reason why the custom profile fields do not show on the members search page? Do I need a custom mod for this? Why was this functionality removed?
  6. (BIM42) Required Info

    Just the plugin I needed. Great support and quick response time. The latest version also support HTML in the Custom Message which is nice
  7. For me the analogy is the same as when you click on the Calendar and are shown the whole month...that is a condensed view because you start from a wide amount of data and then can drill down to the smaller. With a stream or timeline this would be similar to having a quick overview of the most amount of data WITHOUT details. This means titles and small attachments easily viewable with less amount of scrolling. Condensed view is more efficient because you go from simplified to detailled and not the opposite. Anyway the option to select which version you prefer should really be TRIVIAL in terms of adding that option to the ACP and I mean trivial in the sense that the functionality is there. You don t need to ask why people need it because if you don t understand that NOT seeing large attachments first is better than a simplified view with smaller attachments then it is difficult to explain the reason for the request. I for one would really like to be able to default as condensed and if IPB can not provide that
  8. A colleague of mine has been reading the IP.Blog page on the homepage and is asking where those features shown in the screenshots are? Will you update the Blogs app or update the promo page to reflect 4.0 instead of IP.Blog? At the moment it looks like the old version could have had multiple users for a single blog and that the current one does not...unless I missed something Is this now a permission issue where you need to create a group for that unique blog? Not sure I can do that with hundred of thousands of members wanting to create groups
  9. instead of having to re upload the same cover every week. This create tons of copies for no reason If one cover is used for Italian Restaurant night for example, every week you reupload the same image over and over Instead we should be able to pick it from the uploaded images
  10. ​yes We use this for cities or languages...as long as the data is not private you can filter for it in the left sidebar when you go to the member page in the search
  11. ACP Design Feedback

    Well spank me silly and call me shirley!! Thanks...how the &*^* did I miss that
  12. ACP Design Feedback

    Any chances you could make an option to ALWAYS display the second level of the ACP menu It is really really irritating to always have the second menu above the members or other pages...appearing and disapearing when you are going from screens to screens Also there is no way to tell where you are besides the title of the page...but where is the CALENDAR page I am looking at under? Is it under System? Application? (not a question just an example). With the second menu always there you would be able to tell where you are and in the case of the members page you would not have that menu hover above the names or the content of the right frame/table/page I would really really love to have and option to make it sticky and not hover I know you are trying to gain space but it is more annoying than helping Since the width is 100% it really does not save a lot of space to always have the second menu showing imo
  13. 4.0.1!!!

    I am fully expecting easter eggs in 3 updates hint hint
  14. Are web forums in general on the way out?

    If you are asking if online discussions are on the way out then no quite the contrary The format classic forums may be on the way out and move more towards a reddit style of discussions
  15. Great software...no errors and flawless upgrade
