Question on Custom Profile Fields

Post by xiaolu » Fri Oct 21, 2016 1:09 am

Again, first thing first. My board is of phpBB 3.0.11

Then from ACP --> USERS AND GROUPS --> Custom profile fields, I created a new custom profile field, with settings/options (refer to 1st attachment below):

Display in user control panel: Yes
Display on Viewtopic screen: Yes

And then yes, I can see this new custom profile field on a member's 'View Profile' (if the member has entered something for this new field, that is) (refer to the 2nd attachment below)

However, when I get to a topic (Viewtopic screen, right?) with a post from this member, on the right-hand side of the post where you see the member's avatar, etc (called 'mini-profile'?), I don't see this new custom profile field at all (refer to the 3rd attachment below)? Did I not select "Yes" to "Display on Viewtopic screen"?:-) Or maybe I was looking at the wrong screen (in which case where is the so-called "Viewtopic screen"?)?

Thanks!

I just did a search on this support site, and found some on this same issue, I think:

Ok, went through the above topics that others posted on the same 'issue', I found the setting:

Admin Control Panel > Gerenal tab > Load settings >
and select Yes at the Question:
"Display custom profile fields on topic pages: Yes / No

Now, consider this issue resolved.
