Advanced Customizable Profile Request

Post by ObsidianKaesken » Wed Oct 05, 2016 6:50 am

So, I'm using phpBB to create an online social forum with customizable avatars (much like GaiaOnline, SoliaOnline, Caedon, Zantarni Entertainment, Syndrone Online, etc.) and I noticed that much like Gaia, Solia and Syndrone all have users profiles which can be completely customizable by the user and also has CSS option for the user to create their profiles.

I'm wondering if there's a place to get this or if this is a code that they all ended up purchasing from some freelancer. Every time I try to do a Google search, the results are nowhere close to what I'm looking for.
If anyone could help point me in the correct direction or if someone is able to create such an extension for phpBB3, that would be lovely.

Thanks for the read.

Any news on something like this? Closest thing I can think of would be to somehow make profiles compatible with sitemaker maybe?

curious why if you want a social network you don't just install a social network program that includes a bulletin board .

there are plenty of social network clone scripts out there that would give you what you want without having to make all the changes to phpbb.

just a thought.

A forum is a social network, no? SNs just have some fancier php setup/js going on. In these avatar communities all they are is a forum with a super fancy avatar system, a shop for clothes to go with that system, and points (premium or not) to complement. All of the socializing is done on the forum side, which phpbb is very good at. Gaia is such a community and as I think you know it runs on modified phpbb2.

But I don't want a social network. I just want people to be able to customize their own profile's css so they could have a custom color scheme/background image or something. Think oldschool myspace. I'm unsure about moving blocks around... I think css will suffice for now.

It's in development and the developer has been pretty receptive to requests...
