How to find a username if you only have the email address ?

Post by ABCDiamond » Sun Nov 13, 2005 6:04 am

In Admin, how do you find a members username if you only have the email address ?

Is it actually possible ?

I've looked at:
User Admin
- Management

But it appears that you need to know the username to edit the user.

Yeah, that is one of the more iritating missing things, IMO. The best way I know is to sort the memberlist by email and then go to it.

There is also a MOD that makes it a bit easier, but still sort and look: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.ph ... admin+user

You can also try this.
However it has not been validated by phpBB.com MOD team and you should ask for support about it @ phpbbhacks ;)
