User Profiles - ACP Settings


Recommended Posts


I would like to see many of the ACP "User Profiles" changed to be per user group, not globally. I believe I have requested this feature before but cannot find it to "bump".

Most items in the Global User Profile Options and Avatars & Photos sections should be per group.

As things stand it is somewhat limiting, I'd like for example to allow just my staff and VIP members to edit their member title, but currently cannot do so.

I'd like to allow only certain user groups to upload/use avatars but cannot do so. Same for BB code in signatures etc, certain groups I'd like to allow, but not others.

Quite a simple but effective suggestion really, it will be another leap towards full control for board administrators.

Edit: Having had a quick scan over the IPB3 ACP, the following I would like to see as group options.

Global User Profile Options
[*]Allow users to choose skins? [*]Number of posts a member must have before allowing them to change their member title? Can change their member title? [*]Maximum length (in bytes) for user signatures [*]Allow HTML in signatures? [*]Allow BBCode in signatures? Avatars & Photos [*]Allow the use of avatars? [*]Allow users to use remote URL avatars? [*]Max. file size for avatar uploads? (K) [*]Maximum avatar dimensions Guest Default Options (scrapped and contents moved to "User Profile Options") [*]Allow members to rate each other? [*]Allow HTML in "About Me"? [*]Allow BBCode in "About Me"? [*]Allow emoticons in "About Me"? [*]Enable the friends feature? (not sure what this is exactly so will add it just in case)

In addition to this I have a couple more very simple improvements that can be made:

1. Add two more options:

Allow images in signatures?
Allow images in "About Me"?

You may want to allow the member to use coloured text etc in their signature but not images.

2. If images are disabled, remove the "Insert image" button from the RTE editor.
3. If BBCode/Emoticons are disabled, do not show the RTE editor, it is confusing to members since they can't use it!

#3 might be a pre 3.0 bug, I haven't upgraded yet. If someone wants to confirm it with 3.0.2 I'll add it to the tracker.

In summary, the more options that are per-group the better. It hands more control to the administrator.

Look forward to hearing from you.
