The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Image of the MyBB Member List

The member list shows a listing of all registered users on the forum.

For each user, the avatar (scaled down), username, user title, stars/group image, date of registration, date of last visit, and post count is displayed. By default, the users are sorted by registration date, in ascending order.

If there is more than one page of users, a list of pages will be shown above and below the member listing. Below the member listing, a link to the Forum team page is given.

Beneath the member listing, a form allows you to search by username, website, and change how the members are sorted (allowing you to sort by username, registration date, last visit, or post count, in ascending or descending order). You can also choose to perform an advanced search by clicking on the "Advanced Search" to the upper right of the search form.
