On the frontend of a group, we allow users to search and sort members.

However, on the Manage interface, we only present a user list. this caused a problem for me today, where I wanted to promote a member to Admin status in a 500+ member group. Going to the Manage > Members interface, I had to go through a dozen paginated pages of member listings to find the person I wanted to promote to admin status. If we had search available, this task would have been much easier.

It's worth noting that we'll be pretty much be getting this for free as part of the work I did in #17769 to remove the older BuddyPress bp-default dependency for our bp-nelo theme.

However if we want to do something so group admins can better administer their groups in the interim, we could.

Seems to me like enough of an edge case that we can wait until the changes Ray already made for the Account Settings ticket are launched, rather than doing another interim fix.

This is ready for testing on cdev.

Boone, I addressed this by removing the older group admin template so we can fall back on the bp-legacy template pack. (See .) I looked through the commits to see why we overrode the group admin template and it looks like most of the custom functionality we added is already part of bp-legacy, so we should be good to go here.

Thanks Ray, I just tested this on cdev and it's looking good! I'm sure this will come in handy for larger groups.
