Trust the oldest Community Builder Search Component. We hope you'll love the 2.4 version. This component is how it is because of the plenty user requests and suggestions, let me know if you need any other feature on this component.
This is a Joomla Native component + modules that enables you to search any field defined in CB (Community Builder) and CB lists. Using this component and
the modules you can show a CB Search form in the frontend and control the available fields or the CB lists (you can use either the fields either the lists) for search and the sequence of these fields in the search results. There can be configured an unlimited number of different searches (with there own fields and description) in the backend, but in the frontend the component is preset to the first search. You can access the other defined searches using the modules (they can be set to the search you want).
We tested it with all Joomla versions.
To be honest this was a last resort - until now I had never bought a component without trying it first but I was desperate.
*** It worked 1st time ***
I suggested a tweek and within days it was done - and the next update is due in a few weeks.
If like me you have been struggling with searching CB then this is best solution and well worth the 25 euros
