Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Add an "Advanced User" option that lets the user search for any addon undepending on the game version.

For Minecraft for example, there are certain mods that work for all 1.16.X versions, but the mod developer only tags them with the 1.16.4 game version so they don't show up on the addon searching menu for 1.16.5 profiles.

As an "Advanced User", you know what you are doing. User activity limitations - even if they are logical - should not apply to advanced users.

P.S. Thank you for the good work so far!

    umm I have the opposite problem... Curseforge doesn't seem to consider any version for the mods when I add them. It assumes the most recent release works for the version of minecraft that the profile is on, when that isn't the case.

    I don't think "Advanced User" is the right idea for this. However I do think that version agnostic filtering would be very useful. Maybe allow users to specify a range of versions? Regex would work as well for non-minecraft related games.

Hold on!
