Searching for users on mobile


(Stephen) #1

Just tried to search for a user from mobile and realised that while the mobile search says this:

Bitdoesn’t return user objects, only posts by users.

That’s fine if the user has posted, but in this case the user in question hasn’t posted something in an area which my account has access. The result is no search results.

IIRC search on desktop returns both user objects and posts, can we get the same on the mobile interface?

This is a long standing issue, but the simple workaround is to use https://meta.discourse.org/u to search for users which works for mobile as well.
