How Do I Create Extra Profile Tabs With Custom Coding

I'm looking at creating an extra profile tab, for use with Mixcloud and Soundcloud ..

So members can click on the tab and see said members mixcloud/soundcloud embedded players ..

Also want to be able to give them the option to edit and add in the embedded code themselves...

Is this possible?

Can someone point me in the right direction to do this?

[HOW TO - vB4] Adding a New Tab in Member Profile - Reloaded

You probably do not want people to add HTML code themselves - potentially, they could add malicious script which creates vulnerabilities to your forum.

Thanks for the reply and the link...

Yeh I was thinking that about the html coding ... I could have it so they just post a standard URL link from the sites that would turn it into the player .. like someone made a bbcode for soundcloud on here... but I wouldn't know how to incorparate that into the Tab .. would you have any suggestions?

You might want to use a profile field to do it. Custom Profile Fields

Hi Lynne... not sure if you've seen the embedded Soundcloud or Mixcloud players that people post about facebook etc .... on facebook they just post a URL and it auto brings up an embedded player.. i'm wanting to try to do the same on my site in a profile tab ... don't think custom profile fields would do that?

I am not familiar with those players. It sounded like what you wanted was a field for the user to fill out.. what you do with that data is up to your coding.
