As Designed Front end user search doesn't work as well as admin user search

    The find member box on the front end doesn't do partial matching for member usernames like the user search in the ACP.

    This is really annoying if you know part of a users name, but it's not the first part.

    On the front end you'll receive an error if you try to do a partial match, on the back end you'll get a full list of users it could be.

    This is how this is expected to work - it uses the auto complete system (like mentioning a member) which does a prefix match against the usernames.

    Ahh, okay, could you move this to suggestions then please?

    It would be great to have the auto complete system when typing, but if nothing of value appears and the search query is submitted it should search for partial matches agains the whole username and return those results instead, like in the ACP.

    EDIT: Or I can make a new post if it's easier
