Search By Custom Profile Field

Version: 3.0.7
Board: ... searchuser

In the features list it said that you could search by any member attributes. How do you search the members' list by custom profile fields?

I have a similar problem, but just can't seem to find any where to activate it.

I've create a FIRST NAME and LAST NAME custom fields. They show up during registration, profile editing and in the right column of the various postings as selected under FORUM FEATURES.

But I cannot locate anywhere to allow me to "Find a member" or do a User Administration Search on these custom fields.

Any tips or hints where I'm suppose to look to turn on this feature would creatly be appreciated.

By default, there's no way to search Custom Profile fields. You can either request a MOD, or open a topic for discussion about it over at area51 for possible inclusion into phpBB as a feature. This likely would fall in the 3.2 area. :)
