I wanted to add some fields to the registration form.
Now, I couldnt use the custom profile fields beacause it doesnt connects with the data that already have a table cell.
for example, I wanted to add ICQ number in the registration, but there is already ICQ number field in ibf_member_extra, so If I'll add it, the ICQ number on the ibf_members_extra wouldnt be edited, which meanse the built ICQ field on the personal portal will remain unedited, so I had to programming it my self.
My suggestion is to have the ability of connecting custom fields with existing database fields, such as connection icq custom field to the icq field on ibf_member_extra..
From that idea I have another suggestion - to have the ability of deciding which options will be availible to select at the registration form.
Or even better, all that stuff, gender, IM info, etc. as custom fields that you can add anywhere into the templates.
It would help make IPB more flexible. I wouldn't mind removing the ICQ thing altogether.
Maybe you should make a rule here about that. Then you all can use your ban hammers more often.
We don't ban people very often lol. Besides it's a personal thing, not a forum rule.
Well I totally agree and I think (or more hope) IPB 3 will have this default because a lot of us want more control over profiles and registration.
It would also make it competitive with SMF's Registration/Custom fields that they integrated. ;)
What's that all about? :blink: I mean, it's bad enough seeing "+1" 3000 times a day, but you're the first person to reply...
It's funnier than +1 XD
It's not funny at all :lol:
Regarding custom profile fields, I think all non-essential fields (display name, password, email address) should be made custom profile fields. Then we can add, remove or modify them from the ACP as necessary.
I call the password, email and display name essential. Especially the password.
Oh, excuse me. I made that post rather late.
Yes, I meant the listed fields are the essential ones.
