Search user emails and username?


On VBulletin we used SphinxSearch which allowed member's to search by email and username.

For example, if I enter someone's email or username, included in the search results would be the user's profile, not just posts/threads.

I'm using Elasticsearch on XF2 and I'm wondering if there's any addons or options to include more in the search results. I'd like member profiles to be included in the search results.

Does something like this exist?

There's nothing built-in to do this (and we wouldn't ever expose email addresses like this), so you would need an add-on.
