Custom Registration / Profile Field

Post by faqbch99 »

Hi,

I have looked around the admin and do not see what i am looking for. I am hoping someone can point me to a mod i can not seem to find. PBPBB3 New install.

Your Profile has several predefined settings..
AOL Instant Messenger:
Website:
Location:
etc...

I would like to add a new one.. Your First Name:

I would like to have it display under the users avatar like the others (Location) it only shows up if filled in and is optional.

I would also like this field to be present on the registration page as option to encourage people to use it.

Is there anything out there like that?
Basicly, i would like to duplicate the Location: field in user Profile.

Thanks.

OK i enabled it. Thanks. However it does not display under the users avatar when they post. I filled it in on my name and i see it in the profile. Is there a code change i need to make to have it display when they post?

When you create it there's an option to display it on the profile.

Check the load settings (bottom of the admin panel main menu) as well to see if the option is on there to display custom fields on the viewtopic page.
