in admin Control Panel / Subscriptions/ Transactions

one can search using Username
this will not give you a correct search as one need to put in the Display name so I figure maybe you could change the Username > Display name.

I'm looking at admin/view_subscriptions.php, notably lines ~123 where you can see that it checks the User Display Name vs the User Login Name field of the database, but the wording on the admin page itself mentions Username which seems to be causing confusion.
	$filter_array['username'] = $username;
	if ($username != "") {
		$query = "
			select USER_ID
			from {$config['TABLE_PREFIX']}USERS
			where USER_DISPLAY_NAME = ?

So are you are saying that it picks either the username or display name?

my latest search for this guy

Login Name "frank coleman"
Display Name "franko"

if I use the login name (username) then there is no result not as "frank" or "frank coleman"
it works only if I use the display name "franko" then I see him in the result.

It searches the "Display Name "

During the ubbt 7 5.x series, the control panel often used the term "username" interchangably for "Login Name" and "Display Name". A lot of work was done for the 7.6.x series to clean up that confusion. What you are seeing is one of the "username" items that slipped by and did not get fixed.

In this case, "username" here means "Display Name."

Thanks for reporting this. At the time of reading your post, I updated the software to reflect this correction. Good find thumbsup
