Possibly foolish question

Post by Angel-girl »

So I set up my Custom Profile Fields on my new 3.0.7 board and saw that there were new checkboxes for "Display on Viewtopic screen." I thought that might be cool for a couple of the CPFs, so I checked the box. Now, am I foolish or should that field (and its contents) now show up under the username on the thread/topic pages? I can't seem to make it do so. I've tried refreshing and purging the cache, just because I didn't know what else to do. Help, please?

In your ACP, on the "Board features" page, check that "Display custom profile fields on topic pages:" is set to "Yes".
If it still doesn't work, it's possible your custom theme doesn't support custom profile fields there.

Actually my co-admin figured it out. Clever girl, she is. Thank you both for the help.
