Empty Profile Field Notification! 1.0.0


WHAT IT DOES: This hack will inform your users in a somewhat annoying way that they should fill in profile fields that you specify. Once they fill in the specified fields, this message will go away. This Hack can be used for many things, for example. You can have a notice displayed if they are not a subscriber, not a member of a certain usergroup, have not selected an avatar, and more. Its up to your imagination

WHY I MADE THIS: Rather than forcing users to fill out profile fields and potentially lose new members because they just didnt feel like doing it right then and there during signup, this will remind them while they are browsing the forums that "hey, its a good idea to fill this out or you have to look at this annoying message everyday"!

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1 - Go in your adminCP > Styles & Templates > Edit Templates > Forum Home Templates > FORUMHOME

Find:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Below, add:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Step 2 This can get tricky for beginners. Now, customize the Hex color for the word "ATTENTION:" to whatever color you wish. I just made it a different color to help it stand out, you may remove the color formatting if you wish. Now select the profile field number you wish to produce a warning with.
ex.
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

*NOTE: Make sure you change the URL to match yours.

Step 3 This is OPTIONAL!

Lets say, you want your users to fill out 2 or more profile fields. Simple, just keep adding the code like this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Hopefully this was informative and helpful. I will support this the best I can, but I am no expert. Feel free to improve upon this, all I ask is you share the improvements with others in this thread.

Unfortunately there was something wrong with the if condition ... it displayed for everyone regardless of whether they had a picture or not, even non-members.
