[Suggestipn] Add option to sort/search maps by author
on: September 11, 2017, 01:51:56 pm
So I spend a lot of time in the exchange playing custom maps, and some of them are very good, but unless the author gives a series of maps an easily searchable name or has a list of them on the forums, I've found its almost impossible to track down some maps with unique names, which can be frustrating if they're part of a series.

Would it be possible at all to allow users to search the exchange looking for maps by a specific author? It'd make it a lot easier to find "lost" maps by specific authors, especially as the database is currently over 800 maps total.

Please disregard all of the above

If you type the Name from the Author in the Text block it will show Maps of that Name.
[and/or Maps the name is mentioned]
