[mini-hack] Hidden profile fields viewable by admins & mods IN profile.

Not Supported  

I decided to add a couple of custom profile fields that I'd like to keep hidden from regular members.

When adding a new field in the admin control panel it says:
Field hidden on Profile? - Field only viewable by admins and mods
But I've found that it doesn't work as expected. The hidden field still can't be viewed by admins & mods when they click on someones profile.. To view the field you have to click on user options and then login to the control panel, which is more trouble than its worth IMO.

This mini-hack will fix that. It will allow admins, mods and supermods to view the hidden fields IN the profile. The fields will remain hidden for regular users.

Very simple hack (1 file edit).

To make hidden profile fields viewable by admins and mods IN the profile itself. It saves you from having to click user options and logging in to the admin control panel to view the field.

Whats the point of over 100 un-useful hacks around here? Every hack will be useful to at least one person. Anyhow, thanks for sharing Evil

What would be the point in living? One mans rubbish is another mans gold to coin a phrase. I can personally think of loads of reasons for having these hidden fields.

Good hack Evil .

This would come in handy for admin/mods to add notes to peoples profiles such as who have warned this user before, dates he was banned/unbanned, etc...nice hack!

Great hack thank you.

This works well with staff notes. This is something i have put on my board which allows mods/smods and admins to type notes into a profile field (which has been changed into a text area rather than a short line). The staff notes act as a record of members bad behaviour or when a mod has needed to record something about a member which we dont want the member or other members to see.

Previously, it was kept purely to the control panel but with this hack, it is now available to be seen in the profiles but the staff.

Thank you.
