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
I'll second that! Elson is awesome! :)
Looking forward to his reply on a few things myself! :)
It looks awesome! Elson is very talented.
You think you could build off this function to build a suggested friends option based off location?
amazing work Elson!
Simply awesome! O_O
Can you do that using a filter for member cathegory?
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.
