[ic] Listing user database
Mon, 20 Nov 2000 14:22:52 -0500 (EST)
A client wants their site to have a membership directory page that
can be used to list and search for other members of the site. I
thought that the most obvious way to implement this would be to
search the userdb that Interchange comes with (with a flag for
privacy, of course).
Unfortunately I can't list anything from userdb.txt, using either
loop or search-region. After removing qualifiers designed to protect
privacy, I found that not even the most simple search parameters I
knew of would list anything at all. EG:
Lists nothing. Removing mv_searchtype (st=db) causes it to list the
contents of the product table instead.
Is userdb a special case that cannot be searched normally and is
there a way to work around it without compromising privacy?
