Hi There,

As an admin, how I can search for a user by their email or username?

Thanks

It would have been a nice feature but, Q2A doesn't have this feature as off now.

Thank you. This plugin searches for usernames. Do you know how we can search for users by email? thanks

You probably don't want users being able to search email addresses so change this:
               
                // ajax return all user events
                $potentials = qa_db_read_all_assoc(
                    qa_db_query_sub(
                        'SELECT userid FROM ^users
                         WHERE `handle` LIKE #
                         LIMIT #',
                        '%'.$username.'%',
                        qa_opt('q2apro_ajax_usersearch_maxshow')                       
                    )
                );
               
to this

                // ajax return all user events
                if ( qa_get_logged_in_level() >= QA_USER_LEVEL_ADMIN ) {
                $potentials = qa_db_read_all_assoc(
                    qa_db_query_sub(
                        'SELECT userid FROM ^users
                         WHERE `email` LIKE #
                         LIMIT #',
                        '%'.$username.'%',
                        qa_opt('q2apro_ajax_usersearch_maxshow')                       
                    )
                );
                } else {
                $potentials = qa_db_read_all_assoc(
                    qa_db_query_sub(
                        'SELECT userid FROM ^users
                         WHERE `handle` LIKE #
                         LIMIT #',
                        '%'.$username.'%',
                        qa_opt('q2apro_ajax_usersearch_maxshow')                       
                    )
                );                   
                }

As admin you will then be able to search by email address. Simply sign out to search by username.
