[Release] Permanent + Custom User Titles For Staff (or any other user you wish)

Description: On my board, I allow members to change their usertitles at will. However, I wanted staff to have a set usertitle in bold right under their name so everyone can tell who they are. This means that if they changed their user title via their profile, it will wipe out that title. We used to just change their usertitles for them manually via the admin CP so we could keep their bolded user title then add a break tag with their custom one but this got old. I know there is a hack for this but here is a quick and dirty way to do it without hacking but you will need to edit the permanent title for each user you wish to give it to but once its done, you do not have to worry about it after that.

Screenshot: (Use your imagination)
When done, your postbit will look like this:
Username
Permanent Title
Custom Title

For those whom you do not specify anything in that field, it will look like this:
Username
Custom Title

Demo: You can see this in action at any of the boards found on my sig.

Ok, I did this hack or modification to templates. But see for me I had to put the pagebreak (<BR>) before the custom title instead of the field for the group.

I finally realise the problem You need to have a custom title that is changed already before using the mod. Yeah... and that'll make the <br> work. :nod:

Nothing happens! See this is what is in my template:

<a name="post$post[postid]"></a>
$post[firstnewinsert]
<normalfont><b>$post[username]</b></normalfont><br>
<smallfont><b>$post[field9]</b></smallfont>
<smallfont>$post[usertitle]</smallfont><br>
<BR>
$post[avatar]<p>


and than in the Profile Editor in the AdminCP:

Permeanent User Title: Psychic Reader<br>

hi!

STEP 3: ADD TO POSTBIT

Open the "postbit" template

find "$post[usertitle]"

Right before this, add "<b>$userinfo[field5]</b>"
aand..

In the field enter whatever you wish to appear for that user in bold before their chosen custom title followed by <br>, for example: Moderator<br>
i think.. it would be nice if you place the <br> right after "<b>$userinfo[field5]</b>" like <b>$userinfo[field5]</b><br> ..
because then you dont haveto put it in to the user profile field separately .. or something like this..

The reason why we do that is because for people without a permanent usertitle, it'll have a gap between the user name and the user title itself.

Thanks so much, Kittzy. This was one of the easiest hacks I have ever installed, it took me all of 2 minutes, and you explained it so well. Thanks, That made my life a whole lot easier.

Once could actually use Rank to do this. But this is still a very nice mod. Great job.

Hi, I was wondering if there was any way you could have this hack work with a usergroup, and as soon as a person is put in a usergroup, it automatically adds a permanent usertitle for them?

Okay, I know this is a OLD thread but can anyone help me with this... call me dense but I don't get how the problem with the gap was fixed . If I don't put <br> then the custom title and the username run together unless each are long enough... If I do then there is the gap. How was it fixed?

Re: [Release] Permanent + Custom User Titles For Staff (or any other user you wish)

I was simply wondering (if anyone still comes here) if you could send me the file on how to do it because it won't let me download at all... I click on the link and a new page loads but the download doesn't start.

I am liscence registered and all that. I don't know what's wrong.

So if anyone has it could you please send it to nessa@wizardingblood.net

Thanks.

I'm trying this hack, but it's not working. Does anyone have a copy of user.php from 2.3.0 they want to share?

I've posted a Beta release of a fix that I've done on my own boards that allows me to add html to custom profile fields via the user.php in the admin panel, just like in 2.3.0. I run 2.3.7 and it works like a charm.
