[DEV] About me

Post by Danielx64 » Thu Nov 07, 2013 1:31 am

Modification Name: About me
Author: *Daniel

Modification Description:: This mod will give your users space on their view profile page where they can post anything they want. This idea was taken from a forum that I go on where people could post links to all sort of gifs and so on. I liked the idea because it give users a place where they can post all sort of things without having to create really long signatures.
Modification Version:: NA


Features:

- Has permissions settings so that admins can control what BBcodes can be used
- Has same layout and controls as "Edit signature*"
- Admins can edit user's About me


Modification Download: NA

Screenshots:

Looks interesting *Daniel, but is this now a MOD or Extension?

There will be only extensions for phpBB 3.1.
So each MOD should be rewritten to the extension, which doesn't require file changes.
Please do not PM me for support.

This looks good and I will be using this when 3.1 is in a live release. One suggestion though about the positioning.

Would it be possible to move the position of the About Me to an area next to the user info (Name, avatar, group, rank, etc. Cutting the top section of the profiles in half and moving the About me to a more noticeable and readable position could really make it more visually pleasing.

I am not sure if that is possible with the hooking and placement system in 3.1 so it may not even be feasible without some sort of new hooking position in the core.
Always use the Support Board for phpBB support. One PM answers one. One post answers many.

Unless I can get the hooks that I would need it may not be possible. I will keep it in mind though

An extension i really would like to use in the future so keep up the good work :D
But i do think it should be renamed to something more like profiletext or have the option to change my self.

As we speak i have kind of the same but instead a mod + custome profile on my forum which allows the user to have any bbcode in the field wich allows them to add userbars, avatars they have used and so on.
