Is there a way to look for other members by maybe using the zip code like you would to search in the classified section? I tried to use the 'memberlist' search and selected 'location' from the pull down menu, but I think it is for looking up users, and not the places they live in, if I'm correct...

It would just be nice to meet other airheads where I live. :D

I see this was never answered. I have the same question...anyone know if its possible to search forum members local to my zip code?

Searching the memberlist via location sorts it by alphabetical order of whatever the member has entered in their profile under "location".

Searching by zip code is problematic because the membership/profile set up does not require a zip code.

Simply speaking, the location box is a 'free text' box, not a true 'city, state, country,zip code' type of thing.



There may also be many member who would find this an invasion of privacy to allow random people to access their zip code location.

Yes, there is no direct way on the site but in the past I have told people they could search the classifieds by zip code.

Obviously this would limit you to people who are advertising but it would also give you people who are recently active members on the site

People have also posted Forum topics in the past.
