The account search function in LinkX allows you to quickly locate accounts so they can be approved, edited, deleted, etc. This document provides an overview of the account search interface.
Searching User Accounts
To access the account search interface use the Accounts > Search Accounts function from the control panel menu. This will load a page which will initially indicate that no search term has been entered. To start your search, enter the term you would like to search for in the text input box and select the field that you would like to search in. Each of the search fields is described below.
All fields support standard searching
|Username||The username of the account|
|Name||The name that was provided when the account was created or last updated|
|E-mail Address||The e-mail address that was provided when the account was created or last updated|
|Links||The number of links associated with the account|
|Weight||The weight value assigned to the account|
|Date Added||The date and time when the account was added|
|Date Modified||The date and time when the account was last updated|
|All||This will display all accounts, no matter what their status|
|Unconfirmed||This will display accounts that have not yet been confirmed through the submitter's e-mail address|
|Pending||This will display accounts that have been submitted but are awaiting approval by an administrator|
|Active||This will display accounts that have been approved and are currently able to login|
|Suspended||This will display accounts that are suspended; the user cannot login|
You will be able to run a number of different functions on the accounts that are displayed. To display additional information about an account, click on the icon. This will send a request to your server for the information, so it may take a couple of seconds to load. Once it has been loaded, the information will slide into view.
Clicking on the icons in the Functions column of the table will allow you to run that function on a single account. You can also check the boxes next to multiple accounts to perform the functions listed at the bottom of the page. The single account function icons are each described below.
