[support] User profile MOD

Post by Jacko » Sat Sep 28, 2002 10:13 am

spliting up a users profile..

i am developing a new mod which i need for my forums and i need to split up the users profile into 3 areas.

1. Avatar Edit
2. Profile edit (misc stuff like ICQ, AIM, MSN etc...)
3. Signature Edit

once this part is complete then the mod can be beta released..

was wondering if anyone can get in contact with me to show me how this is done please... or assist me in doing it..

Thank you.

Hey Jacko.


Yeah, totally understand what your talking about.

Having things broken down into smaller 'profile options' would be nice.


(before I forget: I think romutis has done something simular to this)


I think what it takes is a ripping apart of the file: includes/usercp_register.php and /register.php (to start with)


I tried it once, many moons ago, but got distracted with something else.

I'd say PM or jump over to romutis' portal site (sorry, can't find the url) and inquire how much work it took him to do.

Good idea, hope it works out.

Yeah, I don't think you'll find anythere on this.

As best as I know, only romutis has gotten this sort of thing accomplish.


Let us know of any further development, if you decide to take some.


Thanks.

That is because you have removed something vital from the form, such as the username or email address etc... you may find that on the sig page may have to have (atleast) a hidden smile field, i found that out when i split my profile page into several section.
