[vBMods.rocks] Add Custom Profile Fields in Postbit
Mod Version: 1.00, by noypiscripter (Coder/Designer) noypiscripter is offline

vB Version: 5.2.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 7
Released: 02 Aug 2016 Last Update: Never Downloads: 40
Supported Uses Plugins  

By default, vBulletin 5 only displays the Join Date and Post count in the postbit area (avatar and username section) in the thread view of a topic. There may be other tutorials out there to add custom fields in postbit but some require you to edit the existing postbit template. Editing existing templates is not good for maintenance reasons as you would have to resolve template merge conflicts every time you upgrade. Or some might require you to create a template hook and repeatedly copy/paste template code for adding multiple fields and change instances of profile field variable names. Another maintenance nightmare.

Don't look any further, here's the mod that is simple but rocks! Simply download the zip file, uncompress it and upload the XML in AdminCP > Products & Hooks > Manage Products > [Add/Import Product] and you're good to go. By default, it adds Location and Occupation profile fields in Postbit. You can configure what profile fields to add in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Custom Profile Fields in Postbit Settings.

As a bonus, the mod also adds "Send PM" link to the postbit to make it easier for users to send a private message to a user while reading a thread. You can also configure that in the Custom Profile Fields in Postbit Settings.

Compatibility: vB 5.x.x

Demo:
See demo here.

I added this and all seems to work except for the values showing in the postbit. See what is being shown vs what is expected in screenshots. Thank you!

Did you specify the field IDs of the fields you want to show in AdminCP > Settings > Options > Custom Profile Fields in Postbit Settings > Profile Fields to Add to Postbit?

Btw, you have a different User Profile Field Manager? Is this a mod and not the default one?

Running standard 5.2.6 Alpha

No mods and yes I added the field IDs correctly. It is just not picking up the correct value.

I'm currently working on a vb5 site now. This will come in handy. Is it possible to modify 'how' the fields display? I'd like to use this to display country flags on the postbit, among other info.
