CPF Icons

Post by Ideas Bot » Mon Mar 12, 2018 7:11 pm

We can create CPF (Custom Profile Fields), but we can't select an icon for them.
And since phpBB uses font awesome library, it would be great if we could select on the CPF Creation the icon that will appear for that CPF before the CPF Title.

3Di has put together an extention to allow bbcodes in profile. viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2451411
Then you could put smilies or images in your profile using bbcodes.

If you are determined to put fontawesome icons in your profile you could then create a bbcode for that.

Code: Select all

BBCode usage:     [fa]{SIMPLETEXT}[/fa]
HTML replacement: <i class="icon fa-{SIMPLETEXT} fa-fw" aria-hidden="true"></i>
Help line:        Fontawsome image: [fa]image_name[/fa]
Image

The boards supports Unicode, just use symbols:

Code: Select all

As I understand it, FontAwsome will probably be dropped in phpBB 3.3

I’m with you Robert, FA was a backward step IMHO. I much preferred our own graphics but, we mustn’t jump the gun, it could be a frying pan and fire situation.

The fact that in 2018 ICQ, Yahoo Messenger and AOL messenger (which as of 2017 no longer exists) are standard profile fields but there is no field or icon for Instagram (with c. 800 million users) is a very strange anomaly. I have added a custom profile field for Instagram but would need to dig into code to put in an icon.

Mhm, I like the FA thing. Just put a css class into a i element and that's it. This is easier for me than create one new icon.

I agree. For what should it be changed now that it finally works in a simple way? I like FA - and I would like FA on CPF too

I haven't seen any info about removing FA. Based on the info, the new template system will use svg, font or png & that is all.

Should they "only" switch to FA 5 instead of a more radical cut they could possibly have all of this in a single "package" without annoying ext developers more than duely nescessary.

The context around replacing FontAwesome with SVG appears to be here: http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic ... 51#p295151

FWIW I'm in strong support of keeping FA.
