Custom Profile Field - Field Type


Recommended Posts


I am sure this was discussed on the preview site, however, until it's either re-opened or merged here I cannot search it :o.  

On IPB 3.x there is a field type called "drop" where you can make a drop down list for your CPF's, however, I am not seeing that as an option in IP4, does anyone know if it was renamed or removed?

I see there is an option called "Select Box" that gives a drop down list when you go to fill out the CPF in the profile, however the Select Box does not allow for a blank option.

For example, here is a CPF on our 3.4.x site for "Ranks" for one of our departments:

Ranks CPF Options:

deputyrecruit=Deputy Recruit
deputysheriff=Deputy Sheriff

Topic View Format:

<span class='row_data'><img src='/images/ranks/{key}.png'></span>

The above code makes the list default to a blank/none selected as default, which is very important to have.

Using Select Box on IP4, I cannot get that "blank" option that is needed, and I also do not see where to put in the Topic View Format information, only the information for displaying in the members profile.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Select is what it's called now. You should just be able to provide a blank option - if that doesn't work, it's probably a bug

​I will add to tracker and link to this post :)

Also, another question.  For topic view, we use graphic icons/badges.  Using this code to display it.

<span class='row_data'><img src='/images/ranks/{key}.png'></span>

How would this be displayed in IP4 since we do not put in a key such as (i.e. "key"="Option")
