Problem in search with underscore. IE "bruce_t_white"
 
Received an email that "bruce_t_white" had send a PM, but a search of users finds no such user.
A search for posts by "bruce_t" with exact-name box unchecked shows "bruce_t_white" as a possible user. I can then click on the name to be taken to the user entry.
Is the underscore used as special character in searches or have I just missed some obvious point?
In the meantime if Bruce would like to contact me please use my email, address in my own user entry.

Best wishes
David

Underscores are not supported correctly by recent versions of the forum software. There were some members with underscores in their userid at one time.

I'm not sure he can see your email address. You could try sending this member a PM indicating that the forum sent you an alert that he was attempting to contact you.

Hopefully an admin will see this, and will be able to provide further insight/assistance.

Disregarding the Search issue--

In your Private Message box (not the email notification) you can click the member-name and get their Profile. PM box can be found through "Notifications" top-right or User CP, "Private Messages". Or http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/private.php

Also that link has a simple URL, www.diyaudio.com/forums/members/jazbo8.html therefore http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/membe...e_t_white.html seems to be your contact. (Member for 12+ years, zero posts.)
