in thread Wild card search in Perl Monks User Search

Thanks for the clarification tye. The suggestion that integral gave me works great. I agree with what you are thinking there, the name impies something that it isn't. The integral solution provides a way for me to find the user that I was looking for, but is there a way to make it more simple. Or is this just feature creap that we are looking at?

    Can you describe what kind of simplicity you are looking for?

    Exactly what kind of search did you want to do? As integral described, you can use super search to search user (or any other particular node type or types) titles for one or more specific substrings.

      I guess what I was talking about was adding a seperate super search item that allows a user to do specifically what integral described. I guess it goes back to two statements from above, (one) that I'm too dense to just do it through the integral method, and (two) that this is probably just feature creap and wishful thinking.

      Bottom line is that what integral posted above makes it pretty simple. I think that maybe I need to think outside the box a little bit. Knowing that when you create a user, it makes a "Title:" the same as the UID, makes a big difference. Once again, I have a clue.
