I submitted this as a bug. Everyone looking at this thread should do the same. They may reply it's not bug but that doesn't matter. Inaction will result in permanent loss of this useful feature and all its workarounds.

The username search is still available on the iOS app. I'll find the person there then add them as a favorite which I can pull up from my PC later if I want.

I also have found that you can not use the username search it is missing. So when someone sends a meet me message I can not reply.

Today is 8.2.16 I was able to locate the Username search option until now. I will not pay to use POF instead I will pay to use Match..co if this is not restored.

You can use search by username if you are logged into the Forums.

i don't use the ap, but before i log on on the regular website it's there. so the moral of our story children is a smart phone does not have all the answers.

It's worth bearing in mind that POF was written for pc -
the smartphone stuff is essentially a 'working' bodge......

Folks, you're going to love this one. Sometimes "User Name " is there and sometimes not. One time I can find a user and the next time it tells me the user does not exist when PoF sent me the email in the first place??? The quality of the site is going down fast!

Hello PoF,

User name Search function IS a deal breaker.
Consider your business at a loss if you do not re-implement or fix this asap.

I have already moved on to better apps and will recommend others on my networks to do the same.

Consider it because it's your loss.

Username Search is always there when you are not signed in.

I couldn't figure out where the username search had disappeared to and finally realized that it only shows up when you are not actually signed into POF. I can't get it to work on my phone app but it works on the laptop so I go there to see the profiles of the users who send Meet me messages. Altho' most of them have not looked at your profile before you get the Meet Me message so it really is a waste of time. Hope this helps.

The Username Search may be there when you are not signed in, but it doesn't work .... not for me anyway. And I can't even find them via Google now either. I think sometimes these methods work and sometimes they don't. Perhaps it depends on what package the user has.

IT IS WORKING, after a bit of trouble shooting I figured it out..

JUST LOG OUT!

or if you use chrome browser or chrome book (like me)

hit control N, which opens an 'incognito' web tab, meaning there is NO NEED to log out, which makes it easier to do the username search (DO NOT LOG IN, haha) and once you get the (real and imagined user that wants to meet you but rarely answers), you can go back to you open logged in browser, and paste the person's URL and respond to them.

a) log out
b) do a user name search, it works
c) copy their POF web page
d) paste it, and log in, and send them a message, with prob 8% chance or 1% chance they will respond, as probably a marketing scam to get people to upgrade.*

or a) control N in chrome browser
b) copy and paste that member's web user profile address (mostly they are fake or silly as do not respond)
c) go back to the open browser that is still logged in and paste it and respond (while wondering why waste time on silly people who send you know message and look very hot, haha)


*A scam because you must upgrade to see 'who wants to meet you" but not a scam to use 'user name search', as upgraded member cannot use it either; unless you do what I tell you too!

**A scam as it brings you back to the site... ;)

;)

still it is easy and works... just log out..

it does not work logged in!

cheers
