    Before we even considered migrating from vB to XF, this was one of our must-have add-ons to give our members the capability to easily locate one another via a search mechanism.

    It works like a CHAMP and as an added bonus our users can now do partial-word searches, which they never could before!

    KUDOS on such a well done job with this Member Search add-on!

    Allows users of my site to search profiles of other members by model name or year, something they have been requesting for years. I was able to customize the labels in a way that should encourage users to update their profiles. Thanks Andy!

    i've always been surprised that this isn't a core part of the xenforo software. essential for a travel website so members can find others based on location. well done and no bugs so far, so thank you!

    Thought I had previously rated it.. Oops sorry. Anyway, this is an absolute must for us, as we rely heavily on user searches, for profiles and other members.

    This is one of the best add-ons we have installed currently, and I cannot thank Andy enough for this.

    He does an amazing amount of work here at XF, for us and his add-ons are always, working, bug free, lightweight and I find he thinks of the little things, we may overlook, and creates stunning add-ons as a result.

    This add-on works perfectly in searches, and the results page is very well thought out for member search and custom fields.
