    TAZ has a couple of additional profile fields, like "forum software". How can I search in these fields, e.g. "all users who use MyBB 1.7" or whatever? Is that even possible?

    Steve it correct, custom fields are not searchable here or on any major forum platform that I'm aware of. Personally I think they should be but forum search in general is pretty antiquated by today's standards.

    I see. Thank you.

    Today's standards involve "platforms" like Instagram which don't even have a search function which works as expected ...

    I certainly take your point. I guess I judge everything by Google which setting aside all their dubious practices really delivers when it comes to a search.
