        I don’t have an account on lemm.ee, so that is why it likely does not come up. Not sure how to expand search within servers federated with your instance in voyager.

            You have to put the instance name if you want to search for a user. I just did the same search on voyager for [email protected] and it went straight to their profile.

            Otherwise yeah, the search probably defaults to only users on your server.

              @[email protected] has the right of it. @[email protected], to search for a user not on your instance, you have search for ‘username@instancedomain’. If you only search the username, it will search only in your local instance.

              Edit : but when trying to tag somebody, it is able to search through other instances so maybe there is a way to implement the same technique to the search section.

              Edit 2 : all my points above are for specifically how voyager behaves not how lemmyui and other clients do.
