XF 1.5 Use Search box to search for members

Is there a way to get the normal Search box (below user name) to search for members? I often go there and type in part of a user member name and get nothing as a result but a bunch of threads. A "member" check box would be nice.

Do you mean searching with the quick search box? If a username matches part of the text/query you're searching for, we do display it, though it only works in an auto-complete style, so it's not really different than doing the "find member" box on the member list.

Hmm. It does seem to be working now. I'm not sure why it didn't before.
