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.

A very nice hack, thanks! I've also added that field to the getinfo template above the custom title.

greetings

i like the idea behind this mod. i attempted to install this mod but am running into a bit of trouble.

vbulletin version 2.3.2

i follow the steps described exactly in the text file. when i apply this, in the postbit, this is what i get:

The Wise One
Administrator<br>Administrator

i then applied the break directly to the postbit, but as mentioned above, it creates an extra space for those who have no permanent title.

any ideas why this is happening and how i can fix it?

thanks in advance

I am having the same issue as this fellow is.

is there a compatabilty issue with 2.3.2 or is this a simple mistake elsewhere?

I'd like this to work as to not have a line break for those not getting a custom usertitle.

Thoughts, suggestions?

I do not have 2.3.2 installed but it works fine on 2.3.0
maybe they've changed the templates or they way it handles HTML in 2.3.2?

How are you entering the text in the field? From the AdminCP or from the profile as a user?

Kitzzy, I'm using 2.2.9 and its giving me the same problem as well. Maybe you could include screenshots on where you put your line break?

Hey kitzzy, I'm interested in these screenshots as well.

I would like to have this work as you have shown us, so I dont have to put the permanent title UNDER the user edited one.

Thanks

aha!

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showt...profile+fields

those using 2.3.1 or higher are SOL.

FWIW, using a user.php from an old copy of 2.30 makes this mod work.
