For several weeks now I have tried to create a custom search for users who want to narrow their search to a particular messenger, i.e - kik, bbm, whatapp.

This was a task for a developer and I contacted several but Elson Tan came to my rescue.

In less then two weeks he has created me a custom search which collects the data of my users from a few fields and stores them in a database on my server.

You can see then fields I used in the image below.

It looks like this below. (I created the header image) - 

Elson has also placed an icon next to each user's ID, below are Kik results.


These are the results for WhatApp user's in the United Kingdom, aged 0 - 90.

He has produced exactly what I needed.

If you need this feature for your network then please contact Elson Tan

      Hi Fabio,

      Yes it can be done , using the same technique to get every member's data(the category the belongs to) then store it in an external database.
