so there is no kind of solution in all BuddyDev to have a rifined way for a member research?
What the scope of all those plugin if the very base of using a member community, finding each of them according to different Xfield, is not possible?
This sounds very strange to me because this missing point reveals all the other plugins unuseful because a community cannot be considered like a big mess of members distinguishable only by names.
Probably I need another set of plugins, closer to the real use of buddypress.
I am sorry for the delayed reply.
At BuddyDev we offer some of the solutions for specific needs of building community with BuddyPress. While I agree that search is important for the community, we do not offer a solution for search.
Our reason for not offering search is the profile field search in BuddyPress(if you need a complex search over multiple fields) is not efficient and the better solution for larger sites will be to index and use elastic search or something similar.
Offering a search which is not efficient will be more problematic than a real solution. That’s why we don’t offer it yet. If we did plan to offer one, we will be specifying the limitations.
