BR

I think you may be taking Jason's instructions just a little TOO literally. You need to type in the member's name (eg John Hinkley - not "member's name" ) into the search box halfway down the home page. That will bring up that member's postings and you can then access his/her album from there.

Hope you enjoyed your beer!

It looks to me from the above that you are searching from the wrong box, as I got the same result by searching in the "search this site" box in the green bar at the top of the forums page. You need to go to the Home page and scroll down to this search box:

Enter your wanted member's name here and you should get a plethora of results from which to choose.

I look froward to hearing that you've found them (3 times )

br, I think I've now got a handle on why you're struggling.

I've tried the same in the past with the same lack of success that you've had.

There is more than one search box on this site; I'm guessing that you're using the one on the top right hand side of the forum site at the right hand end of the green bar above the banner.
This, as you've found, will only search in the content of posting, rather than the membership list.
John Hinkley came up as his name was mentioned in a header/thread title, rather than because he is a member.

Rather than search from the right hand end of the green banner, in the header, head for the "home" selection at the left hand end of the black bar just below the banner.

This will take you away from the forum to the home page of the site.
Half way down that, there is a Google search box in which you can enter the member's name.
Don't forget to tick the box just below, to search this site only.

This will then take you to a conventional Google search results page, where the member's profile normally comes up as the top listing.

From there one can find the member's album(s).

Personally I often just leave the site, go to google and enter "Model engineers forum member name" That way you might get two chances depending on what you enter; in my case my members name is"peak4" But my actual name is "Bill Williams"

Hence a search for my actual name also yields a useful result

It's just occurred to me - are you sure that you're spelling their name correctly? That might explain it. The only other way is to start a new thread and ask the member to identify themselves directly. After all, if they are posting on here, even via an alias, they may well see your request.
