Same issue with Hebrew language - doesn't recognize any letter, is it UTF8 Encoding?
Does work for English names, but doesn't load avatars for the users.

A suggestion to improve: it looks for all letters in name, so it doesn't work like auto-complete and is less easy to use.
For example if I have a user named Clinton and a user name Tony, when I look "ton" I will find both of them. I would expect it to only find "Tony" or put it on top of the list.
As my forum has thousands of users, it makes it cumbersome if I need to write 5-6 characters of the username...

Great Idea, looking forward to next version :)

Hi!

I have fixed the issues. No it works well for me when using UTF8 characters like "é".
The other thing I did is to improve the result list as wished. Now the names starting with the search sequence will be shown on the top of the list, other entries containing the sequence will follow if there aren't already shown five usernames. Hope it's like you wanted it (good idea by the way ;) ).

All of that will be available in the next version. :)

Hi,
Thanks - UTF8 working fine now and the new order is much better.
However, Images still not loading: this is a URL issue, this extension ignores the setting in the ACP for the forum directory.
i.e. when looking for the images it goes to www.domain.com/download/file.php?avatar=1172.jpg instead of www.domain.com/forums/download/file.php?avatar=1172.jpg
(It should look up the value at the ACP for the forums directory).

Also, for RTL the suggestions box does not adjust to the right side (instead of left)
