View Full Version : Profile Enhancements - Additional Section within Profile and Dropdown within Posts

NOTE: After checking out the vBulletin 3.7 First Look thread (http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=249460), which contains significant changes to the Member Profile page, it is clear that this mod as-is will probably not work properly when it comes to displaying the Extra Profile Info on that page. As soon as an official 3.7 comes out, I'll start working on the changes.

The 3.5.x version of this hack can be found here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=98753).

This hack builds upon my Extra Profile Fields Page (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123253) hack. This template mod lets you take the extra fields from that hack and places them within a dropdown that sits below the user's title within each post, as well as replaces the Group Memberships area with a listing of only these specs. The EPFP hack is basically the entry form for the data that's manipulated in this hack. Please check out the pics at the EPFP hack link to get the full idea.

In my case, it is used for PC specs (and as you will see the instructions are tailored towards this), however it can be easily used for parts or specifications of almost anything (car parts for example).

An example is shown here:
http://www.houseofhelp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39826

Example of user profile with specs:

# of plugin hooks: 1
# of php page edits: 1 (just 1 line to add the custom hook line into member.php)
# of template edits: 3
# of phrase edits: 1

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Can the selections be made clickable to a url that opens in a new window ?

Wired1
07 Aug 2006, 23:38
Not with this mod. All the selections are just user profiles. If Jelsoft ever lets profile fields become links, or you find a hack that gives you this option, then it should work fine automatically.

Great Modification. One question though; when using a 'multiple-line' text box, is it possible for the contents to be displayed vertically rather than horizontally in the drop-down box within posts?

Thanks, really appreciate that.

I'm using it to allow members to list their collection, some of which are quite lengthy. When allowed to do so in the horizontal format; the drop-down box is off limits to the page.

Yes, although it depends on some other things. Do you want a seperate entry page? If not, then simply repeat the last two steps of the instruction file with whatever you'd like in the second dropdown. If you do want a seperate entry page, then some minor code edits have to be made to the plugins, products, and instructions, just so no variables conflict basically.

Just tried it on postbit_legacy on my test server, worked fine. May want to try turning off all other plugins, then see how it works. Assuming it does, enable a plugin one by one to see which one does it.

Is it possible to have url links in these dropdown rows? Also I want it only for the admin usergroup.

Wired1
13 Aug 2006, 07:32
Links: No.

You'd have to place conditionals around the last two steps in the instructions. They are the ones that place the dropdowns in the posts.

Why only admins though?

Hi, did you have any joy in getting the field entries to display vertically rather than horizontally ??My guess as to why it happens was dead on. It's stored as a single string with \r\n for character returns. Problem is, vB strips them before I can get access to them. I know of one way to get around it, BUT... it involves recoding the whole hack and creating a new table in the database just for these fields. A little excessive IMHO.

Fair enough. Is there perhaps a way to specify a maximum width for the 'drop down', after which the text continues onto a new line ?

I'll have to look into it when I get back later next week, but I believe vB's template format will prevent it, as there's no way to code it. If so, I may have to recode the whole thing to get around both limitations. It wasn't designed for loooooooooooong strings, mainly just for easy access to information that could be relevant in any post, for example, computer rigs.

alluidh:
WTF? First guess would be that you've got a typo in the dropdown code, although I haven't attempted to replicate the issue yet. Don't recall having an issue with the test bed though. I'll attempt to replicate it when I get back. Please hit INSTALL.

I have installed both MODs and have the drop down working great however the info does not show up in the profile view in the bottom right quadrant? The problem seems to be related to the data being linked to the correct box. If members have not added info that normally appears in the profile view in the additional Info area then both quadrants show "N/A".

Any ideas? I followed your instructions to the letter.

Not yet. I believe it's got something to do with how that field is stored, and from that I'd surmise that a DB query could fix it, although I'd rather not add any queries if at all possible. Perhaps a modification of a query though.

:ermm: is there an eta on the fix? i appreciate you working on it. thank you.

also, i'm wondering how to get certain fields to show up on one panel vs another. i created two new panels on my profile, rather than swapping out the subscribed groups list. now i'd like some of the options from the new edit stats page that i created to appear on one side and some others on the other side. i just don't know how to do it. they all show up on both sides now unless i change $customfields2 to $customfields3, which gives me nothing on one panel. i just can't figure out how to assign those fields to $customfields3.

also, i've set some of the fields to show up on the member list and made them searchable, but they're not coming up. will you login my site (http://www.virginiareia.com)with username test, password test and let me know? thank you.

FYI your dropdown for the UserCP is missing a link to Edit Investment Stats.

Ok, so if I have this straight, you've got one page, and you'd like to take some of the fields and have them on the left, and some others, and have them on the right?

lol yes! i would. and i noticed that too (about the missing link), but i'm afraid to try to fix b/c I don't want to mess it up. Actually, whatever I did when I went in there, if you look carefully, made the missing link & the edit password link, i think it was, just shrink (you can see the double lines, and if you get your mouse in there, you can actually click on it and it will take you to the edit password/email link. *shrug* lol.
btw, thanks for you help. :)

31 Aug 2006, 04:57
I don't think it would be too hard, just rambling here (to remind me later), but IIRC it'd just be a matter of marking the fields differently, having the edit page show the edit areas for both marks, and then have the quadrants filter them out. I'll look into the code tomorrow, just spent a while updating my own forum to vB 3.6.0, yaaaaaayyyyyy. Now to re-do all the hacks for it!

This looks like a very good hack, one which I would be interested in using, only slightly modified..

Would it be possible for me to edit the hack so that it displays the results of my own custom query, rather than info from the control panel?

My idea is based around the fact I run an interactive story site that intregrates with my forum. What I'm looking to do is query the database for each user to see if they have made any posts on the story site, and have links to them listed under their username, as well as on their member profile page.

How easy/hard would something like this be to achieve? Thank you.

To be honest, that would be a different hack, as mine gathers static profile field info, whereas what I believe you are looking to accomplish will gather constantly changing data.

Only thing I can think of offhand would be to create some vB database queries that hit the story tables and save the results as vB variables (all of this in the member page), and then slap the variable into the member page similar to how I've done. The ones under each user's name in each post could be more difficult, depending on how your story site tables link with vB, if at all.

It would have to be wrapped in conditionals that limit the viewing for this to happen. PM me the code for your member page and I'll analyze it.

Oh yeah, that's no problem at all. I can do the queries and everything else I need to do, it was more the drop-down list thing you have in the postbit that I was most interested in, for someone to hit the link and have a list of the chapters they posted appear - although I think at this point, that might be a bit advanced for me ;)

I know that this is not really the best place to talk about it, but I was wondering if you might be able to do me a HUGE favour? I'm totally new to the way that vB handles hacks, etc.. If I understand it correctly, there are hooks dotted about within the files, you just choose the most relevent one (say, at a point just before you want the data to display), and insert some code, say a query.. which you can then load into a variable, and have displayed within a template? (I'm probally making it sound really basic, but I think that's how it's meant to work).

Seeing as you've taken over the group membership box on the member profile page (which is where I'd probally have my chapter links appear), would you be kind enough to let me know which hook you're using, and some basic tips on how I should go about creating it?

Thank you :)

Wired1
09 Sep 2006, 03:00
Hooks are within PHP pages, and the one I used I made and slapped into the XML hook listings page and the PHP file :)

The hook isn't related to the location of the extra profile field's location on the member page though. That's due to the edits made in the member page in the instructions. The hook code gets the specially marked profile fields from the profile field list. The template edits basically just relabel the box and call the list of marked profile fields.

The dropdown code is manually created by the forum admin who creates it, as per the instructions. It simply calls the profile fields they want.

I take it you already know the appropriate queries to gather the story site info? To be honest, that would be a different hack, as mine gathers static profile field info, whereas what I believe you are looking to accomplish will gather constantly changing data.

Only thing I can think of offhand would be to create some vB database queries that hit the story tables and save the results as vB variables (all of this in the member page), and then slap the variable into the member page similar to how I've done. The ones under each user's name in each post could be more difficult, depending on how your story site tables link with vB, if at all.




It would have to be wrapped in conditionals that limit the viewing for this to happen. PM me the code for your member page and I'll analyze it.
I fixed the dropdown issue. There happened to be one small part of the code that pointed to field5. That was not identified in the instructions. I still cannot get the public profile area in the bottom right quadrant to grab the system specs from the usercp. The instructions are too vague for non-coders and miss alot of specifics. Other than that, everything else is working.

I get the same thing - just installed it and my member page does that too.

Removing the hook line obviously stops it 0 but taking out the member info from member.php doesn't.

Hmmm

Could be an extra </DIV> or something copied in there possibly when you manually copied the info into the member.php. I know when testing it out and copying in code, I've accidentally left an extra div or </SOMETHING> in there. BTW, glad to see another tech site using the hack :) Going to use it for PC specs I take it?

Hello Wired,

When I try to import the .xml file as a Product, vB says that it seems to be a Module and not a Product. So it advises me to import it as Module, but there I don't how to do with such type of file.

It's a plugin, not a product. Go to Download / Upload Plugins and import it.

Hello Wired,

Thanks for your reply.
I think I did now everything I was supposed to do for your two hacks (i.e. with EPFP), but I don't have any dropdown menu next to my username.

I may have done something wrong...

1. do you have any profile fields in the edit page?
2. did you change any of the fields to be in the edit page?

I'm sorry Wired, I didn't catch what you mean :confused:

From the instructions:
The following code places the dropdown within the user's post. The IF condition is only needed if you wish the dropdown to only show if a particular field has information within it, and fieldX is the fieldID of said field.

You left the conditional in there (and it's set to fieldX by default), so it always failed, so there was never a dropdown. I removed the conditional, it works fine now.

I have installed both MODs and have the drop down working great however the info does not show up in the profile view in the bottom right quadrant?


I'm having a similar problem.

Currently, I'm the only one on the page to have filled out the fields.

When I go to view my profile, all I get it a blank field where it should show all of my CarPC specs.

What could be the reason for this?

I've uploaded the plugin.

I'm not sure if I've followed the instructions 100%, they are a bit difficult to follow in the first part as they seem to jump around a bit...at least coming from someone who has very little experience working with vBulletin.

I've got most everything else working perfectly....just need some help on this part.

Any help would be appreciated!

16 Jan 2007, 23:46
Not yet. I believe it's got something to do with how that field is stored, and from that I'd surmise that a DB query could fix it, although I'd rather not add any queries if at all possible. Perhaps a modification of a query though.

did you ever work on a fix to set the dropdown to fixed width and have long fields extend to a second line?

is that possible ? (acp or conditionals)That's outside of the scope of this hack. This hack simply displays profile fields in a different way. Search for hacks that let you limit profile fields to selected usergroups.


Got it!
Great mod! now I'm off to find out how I can change the color of the background of the area you click to get the drop down box...anyone?This hack just uses the default vBulletin dropdown function, so I'd start with that. NOTE: if you want all of them to change, then I'd edit that function. If you want only the dropdowns for this hack to have different colors, then you'd need to copy the function, rename it something else, and call it seperately. Either way, editing the dropdown background is outside the scope of this hack.


did you ever work on a fix to set the dropdown to fixed width and have long fields extend to a second line?Never worked. As mentioned above, it's just the vBulletin dropdown function, so I'd bring it up the "limitation", or "function enchancement request" with Jelsoft, but they may not care since they only officially support their code and not other people's code.

Wired1
20 Feb 2007, 00:49
heh, never noticed that before :)

It's due to something in the Extra Member Fields plugin, but what I'm not sure of yet. All that plugin is is some vBulletin code with one number changed.

Ok so I have this mod working on my forum and I will say that I like it a lot.

Thank you.

I have two questions.

How would I move it to the right side under: Join Date, Location, Etc.
Also I am trying to figure out how to remove the box placed around 'EaglezEye's Computer Specs'. I want it to just display the text.

Can anyone help me?

????

Wired1
21 Feb 2007, 17:12
The box is due to the vBulletin function for dropdowns. You'd either have to edit that function, which would change all dropdowns, or copy it, modify it, and then refer to that modified function.

As for moving it to the right, a couple of lines down from where the dropdown code is placed within the postbit, you'll find the vBulletin code for the Join Date, location, etc. Just move the dropdown code into that area.

Great mod. Thanks!

I installed without too much trouble, although Wired1, you might consider adding to the instructions that you need to upload the plugin file. People will eventually figure it out, but it would make the instructions more "step by step" and easier to follow.

And too bad about not being able to wrap long lines of text, but I understand that's an issue w/ VB.

Wired1
28 Feb 2007, 14:27
I believe the vBulletin manual tells you how to install a plugin.

28 Feb 2007, 15:35
It was just a suggestion to make your instructions more clear. There's nothing in there stating what to do with the XML file. The question has been asked already in this thread so obviously some people are confused by it.

This has been answered in another thread, and has nothing to actually do with this hack. There are no database changes with ANY of my hacks to date, so any vBulletin profile field location information should either be directed towards Jelsoft, or to a more appropriate forum / thread.

Does anyone happen to have any insight?

I'm sure I just need to write the code correctly. Problem is, I'm not sure how to do that as I don't know code very well at all.

Just upgraded to 3.6.7 myself and skimming the code it looks like they have plugin locations now, so I'm going to upgrade the code for it this weekend. I'll also look into the normal member info issue, but off the top of my head I don't see the correlation as it's a different cell, but I do see it on my own forums, so we'll see.

I've added new skins, and even though I've made the edits to postbit, I can't see the drop down in there. I've reinstalled the product too. The information is still in the fields too. Any idea where I should start looking?

Hrm, looks like a whole hook is missing from the main hack. Odd thing is, while looking over the code this weekend, I downloaded everything from these threads and installed it fine per the uploaded instructions. Maybe I wasn't working off of the instructions I thought it was. I'll re-do it tomorrow.

As for what it does, it calls only the marked profile fields and displays them in that box. If you can't wait for the new code to be posted, check out the 3.0.x and 3.5.x threads, they have it in their code as well.

Wired1
18 Jun 2007, 00:56
Damned if I know why, but the plugin's back, all on its own...

Anyway, I've updated the instructions. vBulletin changed the memberinfo page a bit, and as such I've translated those changes over to this hack. Just some minor formatting.

RedGTiVR6
18 Jun 2007, 01:31
precisely what do we need to update to get the part of the memberinfo page to show up correctly?

Just re-upload the .xml?

The instructions are still for 3.6.0. Or at least that's what they say at the top of the .txt file when you open it.

Wired1
19 Jun 2007, 00:40
yep, re-upload the XML file. Fixed instruction file's title.

RedGTiVR6
19 Jun 2007, 04:39
when I upload the .xml as a plugin, it doesn't update the version in the plug-in list. Still lists it as 2.1.0 not 2.1.1.

Otherwise, it's fixed on our forum!

Thanks for the update!

Done everything by the book (twice) and the dropdown wont display - in usercp, the extra options is shown but when clicked all I get is "save changes" and "reset fields" - no fields to input stuff to :(

Is there a way so in the admincp area a line can be added to seperate profile fields from the extra option profile fields? Right now they are bunched together but it would be great to see a category line that says 'Extra Options' then under that the Extra Option fields are shown.

I've got the extar fields page working, but the dropdown doesn't appear...

Man, these mods are racking my brain...I could've made a mistake, but the only thing I think may be causing the issue is the edit to the member.php file...attached.

This is a great mod...I just wish there was someone around to help...

I'm using 3.6.8

UPDATE:

Got tired of waiting for help...

I just removed the if conditional from the postbit and..."voila"...done and done.

Ok,

Looked at the edit instructions and it says to find:

<if condition="$show['membergroups']">
<dl id="membergroups_list" class="smallfont">
$membergroupbits
</dl>
<else />
<div class="smallfont"><strong><phrase 1="$userinfo[username]">$vbphrase[x_is_not_a_member_of_any_public_groups]</phrase></strong></div>
</if>

And replace it with:

<if condition="$show['extrainfo']">
<dl id="additionalinfo_list">
$customfields2
</dl>
<else />
<div class="smallfont"><strong><phrase 1="$userinfo[username]">$vbphrase[n_a]</phrase></strong></div>
</if>

But my MEMBERINFO template looks like this:

<if condition="$show['membergroups']">
<td></td>
<else />
<td><strong><phrase 1="$userinfo[username]">$vbphrase[x_is_not_a_member_of_any_public_groups]</phrase></strong></td>
</if>
</tr>
$membergroupbits
</table>
</div>

</div>
</div>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

So what edits do I need to make?

Hi Wired1, and thanks for an awesome hack :D

I'm using this for members to list their collection and I've added some code to one of the template modifications in order to prevent the dropdown from being rendered off the page. It works ok for IE, but not in FF....does anyone have any ideas??? :confused:

In postbit:

FIND:
<!-- / post $post[postid] popup menu -->

After it post: (added code marked in red)
<!-- post specs_menu -->
<div class="vbmenu_popup" id="specs_$post[postid]_menu" style="display:none">
<table cellpadding="4" cellspacing="1" border="0">
<tr>
<td class="thead">$post[username]'s PC Specs</td>
</tr>

<if condition="$post['field5']">
<tr><td width="500px" class="vbmenu_option">Motherboard: $post[field5]</td></tr>
</if>

<if condition="$post['field6']">
<tr><td width="500px" class="vbmenu_option">Processor: $post[field6]</td></tr>
</if>

<if condition="$post['field7']">
<tr><td width="500px" class="vbmenu_option"> You get the idea. Fill in the blanks!!! </td></tr>
</if>

</table>
</div>
<!-- / post specs_menu -->

Appreciate any suggestions.

Many thanks,
Adam.


Edit:
Nevermind, managed to sort it by changing the td class and order to:

<if condition="$post['fieldX']">
<tr><td class="alt2" width="670px"><b>X:</b> $post[fieldX]</td></tr>
</if>

Cheers,
Adam.

Great mod, many thanks! :)

Works fine, except this little problem;

Let's say I have 5 extra fields. IF a user enters all 5, they all appear ok in the drop down.

But if he SKIPS let's say the 3d field, the last two are not displayed in the drop down, even if they are filled in by the user. I checked my <if> </if> parts in the code and there doesn't seem to be any inconsistency.

Can you please help me out on this?

Again thanks for a great hack. :)

Dave, for the dropdown to be there, you need to add the dropdown code to the sidebar postbit. Hack only has instructions for the one w/ the user info above the post.

Hi,

I put the code into the postbit_legacy template, but it still doesnt show the dropdown, so I set the forums to use the new postbit, and it still doesnt show.

Check the dropdown code for <if>. Most likely you left it in, and that particular field has no data in it, so the dropdown doesn't show up.

I looked at the version I had from 3.6.4. It doesn't have the coding I need either. Cant' you just point out where I need to put the code. Below is my Memberinfo template.

You don't have it because your memberinfo is already edited by another plugin. The code I said to search for is in the default page from Jelsoft. I remember posting the code to add another row of cells to the memberinfo page in either this thread, or the 3.5.x version.

Wired1

Yep, I have those.

Hrm... Ok...

Have you:

Edited postbit template (2 parts to edit)?

I'm hoping somebody who knows how all this stuff works can answer a question for me. If I were to use this Mod with this mod (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123619), (the Profile Fields in Postbits Mod), would I be able to have images in the dropdown list? (I know I could just install them both and see for myself, but if somebody knows the answer offhand I'd appreciate it.)

Wired1
08 Nov 2007, 15:15
My dropdown is the vBulletin one, which is text only, and the other plugin looks to be text only as well. I'd ask the creator of that one to be sure. What are you trying to accomplish exactly?

lostgirl815
09 Nov 2007, 00:48
Thanks for your reply, Wired1. :) I was hoping to be able to put a selectable image in profile fields and have it show up on the dropdown list. So that (for example) if somebody wanted to show that they took part in an event, they'd have the option of checking off that information in their profile and then having the image/icon represent this.

Kind of how people have the option of showing their AIM name, which is represented by an icon.

(Hope that made sense.)

Wired1
09 Nov 2007, 15:54
I think there are event icons built in, or it may be a plugin. May want to search for "attended event".

I've probably done something wrong, because now every user that registers to my forum has by DEFAULT the first field filled in with the default [extra_options] phrase I'm using.

I've tried to find the solution but came up empty. Can you please assist where this problem would reside? Thanks.


Edit: never mind, I figured it out. :)

I can't get this to work, I have gone over the instructions for both of your hacks 3 times and verified the code is in the right place and the plugins/products are imported.

It works to the point of showing up the links in the USER CP, I create a new profile field and it does not show up in the user profile or CP to even enter the values.

Also the dropdown does not show up in the post. I don't get it?

Any help you can give would be great. Otherwise I guess I will just uninstall it because I am honestly lost.

TIA.

Defkalion
11 Nov 2007, 07:46
About the User CP: when you create the new profile field, do you select at the bottom the "options:extra options" at the Display Page part?

About the dropdown, did you insert the code in the correct postbit template? for example, I do not use the "postbit" template, but the "postbit_legacy", so I inserted the code there.

Please post in that one (and delete your post here) so that the threads are better organized for readers. Please answer in the new post if you have set the new profile field to be in the Extra Options group (which is what Defkalion asked). Also, does it show up in te Extra Profile Field Page?

No, i mean summary, for human resource services.

But it doesn't matter.

I just want to know, how can include this extra profile field in search page on memberlist?
Now I can only include the fields from "Edit profile" zone.

It requires further hacking of the members list. I think in the 3.5.x version, I had some untested code at the end of the instructions that would do this, but I don't think it fully worked.

I'm pleased as well!

This mod has become an invaluable part of our forums.

Now I just have one problem...getting these fields to be searchable on the member search window.

I've seen a few references to it, but nothing concrete. Is this difficult to do or just too time consuming right now?

Again, thanks for the continued committment!

Wired1
28 Nov 2007, 16:27
Both. I never even wrote the original BETA code that sometimes would let you have these extra profiles be searchable. I think that was 3.0 or 3.5 when that code was around. It'd take me a while to get around to it, and then code it. If anyone wants to code it and make it an add-on, feel free :) I'd wait until 3.7 though.

Hi Wired1,

I finally managed to get this working with my custom skin, it was a rougue "IF".

I have a quick question.

I use the new style postbit, and the dropdown appears on the left, underneath the username of the person. Is it possible to put it on the right hand side, underneath "Join Date, Post Count, Thanks" etc?

Thanks bud! :)

Yeah mate, you make them yourself (whatever fields you want) and as you make each one, you select which page you want those fields to display on (look at the picture, for me it says "Options:Edit PC Specs") from the drop down box.

But yes, you have to make the fields yourself.

you select which page you want those fields to display on (look at the picture, for me it says "Options:Edit PC Specs") from the drop down box.

But yes, you have to make the fields yourself.


I was doing these steps and now appear in the profile, see the image:

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2007/12/2.jpg

Well, in order to appear these fields, the help of the forum says:

User profile fields can be displayed in posts next to the author's name. If you want to display a profile field in posts then you need to edit your postbit or postbit_legacy template (depending on which one you use as is indicated by the "Use Legacy (Vertical) Postbit Template" option in your vBulletin options) and add $post[fieldX] where X is the field ID of the profile field as shown under the "Name" column on this page.


I use postbit_legacy in my forum, but i donīt know how i can post these fields ( field12, field13, field14) on this.

ŋCan anybody help me?

Thanks a lot!!!!

shcchief
03 Jan 2008, 09:00
You simply replace X with the number of the field.

You will have to scroll across here to see what words I used, for example Mobo, CPU, GFX etc. Just make sure the fields tie up with each other.

Got this as well:

I'm not worried about getting the dropdown - it's not something I need for my site - just the info quadrant.

Running vB 3.6.8PL2

Not all users have it filled in, but the one that matches my forum name here is completed within the usercp - custom page.

Edit: Found the answer to searchable fields - anyone looking, check out the thread for Wired's base mod.

Well, i was done all and this is the result:

https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/external/2008/01/27.jpg

As you see, now it appears EXTRA OPTIONS (see the red rectangle) but not appear the fields. ŋWhat can i do?

Thanks a lot about your interest!

Dinatius and fmntprsv, this should help you both:

Go to AdminCP. On the menu bar to the left, go to User Profile Fields -> User Profile Field Manager.

Edit a field that you would like in their profile. Go to the last option, and change the Option to the last option like below (Mine's customized):

74561

Any field that is marked as such should show up in the lower quadrant (if you are using this plugin) as well as show up in the extra profile page (using the parent plugin).

I have the extra options mod installed, and it was working fine.

Tried installing this (following instructions up to the popup menu bit, didnt want that) but then when attempting to view a member profile i get a blank page.

So i turned off this plugin and profiles work again.... i'm thinking i've not got the values for the following correct:

Execution Order Use this field to enter the order in which code at the same hook will be executed.

Plugin PHP Code Use this field to enter the PHP code that you would like to be run.

I had 5 in the first one by default, and just put 'member.php' in the second and i assume thats where i've gone wrong...

My site is www.49CMD.com

If you follow the instructions and only skip the end of the instructions where it has the dropdown instructions, the memberpage should work fine, there's no editing like you mentioned in said instructions.

Hello Wired1,

I'll be installing this great hack once you release it for 3.7.

I have one question, you have your "My system Specs" in the postbit with a blue background. Do you have to have the small blue background, or can you just have it with the writing "My system Specs" and the drop down button?

Regards Jason :)

I have answered this question from you last week in the parent plugin's thread. It is based upon your forum's template. The dropdown is completely vBulletin's code, and is not modified by myself in any way.

Sorry, thought PM Notification via Email was on, it wasn't.

MEMBERINFO template in the PM looks fine. I think it's working though, as I see on the member page listed above a block called XBOX with some profile info. Can you confirm this? If so, have you changed anything, and if so, what?

For some reason, when I add <hook>member_extras</hook> inside of /includes/xml/hooks_vbulletin.xml, it doesn't create another hook. And nothing "extra" shows up in my profile either. I have installed the first hack with the xml file as well as all of the other changes. I have no clue as to why it isn't working.

The dropdown menu is working just fine.

Great Hack !!!!

I have installed everything and made all the code changes. - It works perfectly.

one question.

How do i change the title of the section in the usercp ?

Currently its called "Extra Options" I would like to call it "Experience"

I run a photography forum and this drop down menu is perfect for showing peoples photography experience. But it will be confusing in the usercp if its called "Extra options".

thanks in advance

Ive clicked installed !!!!!
