Tell us what you are trying to do? I'd like to make a users directory available to users and allow them to search or filter it. Based on my reading of the forums, this is not actually possible (the filtering of a users view). Is that correct? Is there any custom code I can add to my functions.php that would make it possible to filter users?


That's correct, parametric searches cannot be created for Views of Users. It is currently possible to use Query Filters to add static filters to Views of Users from wp-admin, but it's not possible to allow your Users to set those filters on the front-end of the site. There's no simple way to add this feature in functions.php, it would require a significant amount of custom code. Our developers have accepted a feature request to extend the custom search form to include User Views, but at this time I do not have a delivery date available for that feature.
