What the title says. Search bar shows nothing cause I assume it needs to be a text and not a link.

Maybe try searching a thread they’ve posted in and go from there. Why do you want to find them if you don’t mind me asking?

Just pop their name in the top right search bar there and see if they've commented on anything recently - then just click their pfp

Long winded method = Try google but put the student room first. Include the @ e.g. @Chronoscope
Then if they’ve posted any threads/comments the thread should show, then find their username.
Or just try tagging them in this thread/wherever

Look at you all, being so nosy haha I'm kidding I'm kidding

No I wanted to search someone I knew on TSR. Chronoscope's method seemed to work when I added apostrophes beside the username

The apostrophes make it compulsory for that word to appear within the google search. So for the 59,400 hits you are sure that the majority of them are pertaining to the chronoscope in question.

With the 852 hits you will have to check if Chronoschope even appears in the link or not

Tag them without hitting the submit button and hit "view source" and copy their user ID, then go to another TSR user's profile and replace the one ID with the other in the url.
I can tell Chronoscope's is 2041837 without going to her profile so I know the url to her profile will be thestudentroom.co.uk/member.php?u=2041837
More complicated than what others have suggested but it will always work.
