Search by Location(as per user registration)

Post by vair » Sat Jun 02, 2018 2:40 pm

Hi there!
First of all, I would like to say thanks to all of you for being keeping the phpbb as N1 free forum.

I have registered here to get advice. I'm looking for an extension for the phpbb forum that will allow search\filter by location(for all users.

Why we need an extension, not other ways? The main reason my friend (who is the owner of one small phpbb forum), doesn't want to use any MODs/or other ways to avoid complicated steps.
However, we need to avoid inactive users (more 6 months for example) to appear in search results.

So, now we looking for this extension (I did not found using the search). If it not available can I request to write it?


Many thanks!

You are going to need to explain better what you are asking.
Your topic mentions “location” and “registration”, and your text mentions “inactive”, which are three completely different things. None of those three have anything to do with searching for a topic or post subject, so I am unclear what you are trying to accomplish.

Thanks for the answer!
Well, let me try to be more specific wrt requirements.
Nothing to do with registration, the only thing what we looking for is adding additional field "location" to memberlist.php and allows searching by location.
So far we have only: UserName| Rank|Posts|Joined|

As a wish, it would be nice to avoid getting inactive users in search results
Hope now it makes sense? :)

Well, now I bit confused.
The "Location" field already available in phpbb db, (not an custom field) so, what we need to do is just make it visible thru ACP right?
What will happen after a php update?
Sorry for being annoying. Just want to make it crystal clear.

Appreciate your time and support.

Do you mean PHP update or phpBB update? In either case nothing will happen - it will still be there.

You can already specify Last Active Date in the memberlist search. I do not believe you can search by custom profile fields though. Location is not really too meaningful either. See my location in my mini profile?

Well, I went thru all available tabs in ACP but still not found where "Magic button" that will bring the "Location" field in memberlist.php?

Or I have to do some "coding" stuff?

Try the Load Settings page, near the bottom:
"Allow styles to display custom profile fields in memberlist"
