What Does This Hack Do?

This is an update to my 3.7.x version of this hack.

A very simple hack to display your real name in your profile and postbit (or postbit legacy), just like here at vBulletin.org.

If no real name is entered, then it will not display in the postbit (or postbit legacy).


This hack was created because of a request by Hannan here.


Limitation with this hack

People keep asking for usergroup permissions for this hack.

While this would easy to implement, what people fail to realise is that User Profile Fields are not controlled by usergroup permissions at all, and even if usergroup permissions were added to this hack, the User Profile Fields would still be viewable by members even if they do not have permissions to use them.

User Profile Fields are either viewable by all or viewable by none, this is how they were implemented in vBulletin by design, there is no in between with User Profile Fields.

So, I will not be adding usergroup permissions to this hack.


vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 3.6.0 - 3.8.8.

For the v4.0.x version of this hack - check here.

I have added this. It shows when It should in the ACP, but it doesn't show in the "Additional Information".

Any Ideas Please?


Many Thanks.

It will be one of three things:
  1. You did not do the two edits in step 3
  2. You did the two edits in step 3 but it was the wrong field number
  3. You do not have the postbit_userinfo_right_after_posts template hook, because of a custom template/style

If it is either 1 or 2, then you should be able to fix it up, but if it is 3, then you are on your own, as I do not support custom templates/styles.

This is great!
one question tho. Is there any way for it to display the contents of multiple fields instead of just one?
I have 2 seperate profile fields for my users real names. First name & last name.

something like:


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

thanks again

Not the way you have done it.

You will need something like this, to show if just the first name entered or the first and last names entered:


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

That is just an unofficial pointer in the right direction. It should work, but if it does not, then you will have to experiment with the code until it does, as I do not support custom code changes to my hacks.
