[ABD] Custom User Title

Post by imkingdavid » Wed Oct 28, 2015 5:03 pm

Allows users to set a custom user title to be shown above, below, or instead of their group/user rank title.

This currently shows up on topic and PM view in the postbit, and in the profile. I may add it in more locations when the proper PHP and Template events are in place. Let me know where you'd like to see it and I can see about eventually adding it.

A new board config setting is added under Board Features, after the allow quick reply option, which lets you determine the custom title location.

A new global user permission is added in the Profile tab to let you choose who can set a custom title for themselves.

A new UCP setting is added in the Profile tab when the user has the above permission.

When a user's custom title permission is revoked, the title no longer shows on the frontend and they cannot edit it in their profile, but the data remains in the database (phpbb_users, user_custom_title). There is currently no way to edit the custom title when editing a user in the ACP.

This extension is currently in BETA and should not be used on a live board unless you are willing and able to fix issues yourself. I do not provide full support for unreleased extensions.

Here is a GitHub repository set up where you can follow development. Feel free to report bugs and suggest improvements. I don't plan on making this extension very big, so I may decline to add feature requests, but you're welcome to ask at least.

Excellent job!

One suggestion: put option to display custom titles above the avatar.
I'm sorry for my English. Google Translator does a bad job. :D

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll consider it.

FYI I realized I haven't checked the security of the value entered in there. I will be testing for sql injection, xss etc. I tried to hook it in with how everything else is done using the events but I just need to double check that it is secure.

Just to follow up, I tried putting HTML and such into the field and it looks like it's properly sanitized automatically, so that's good news. If you try this out let me know how it works.

Thanks!

I really like the idea and tried to install it. I do not know how to install the second part, the git command one
From the board root run the following git command: git clone https://github.com/imkingdavid/customusertitle.git ext/imkingdavid/customusertitle
Where? How? What?

You do not need that - just follow the instructions for the "Manual" installation.

Either you did not install it correctly or as it is still at beta stage it is not fully working.
