You could have two separate profile fields. One for the link, one for the custom text.

If you don't know how to input profile fields into templates I can help you with that.

i would much appreciate any help bro 

what i want is simple

a profile field so member fills in their steam profile link

and at user panel info i want the field to show like this 

Steam Profile

or just Steam profile  

or whatever i just want a custom text to be linked

Alright, so to reference a user's profile field in a template, you'll do this:

 

{{$fields = $member->profileFields();}}
{{$link = $fields['core_pfieldgroups_1']['core_pfield_2'];}}
{{$text = $fields['core_pfieldgroups_1']['core_pfield_3'];}}

 

Then when you actually want to input the profile field, just do: {$link} or {$text}. You'll have to check and see which pfield retrieves what information by looking at the sql tables.

 

Displaying it could be something like this:

 

<a href="{$link}">{$text}</a>

Every page on IPS, 99% of the time comes from a template you can modify through "Customizations > Themes".

Anything within {{ and }} is processed as raw PHP

Anything within { } is checked for a short-tag, or is attempted to be echo'd out.

There is documentation on IPS' template system somewhere in the Guides section from the menu above

i still cant figure out what to do 

in fact i dont even want to do it like this i mean with ipb3 i used to create a simple text field type and then using simple hyperlink for display format, but now with ipb4 its no longer possible we must create a URL field type and display format is completely useless because no way to make it to show a custom text instead of the long ass links that shows up under user panel info lol this is a simple settings and we cant do it without modifying themes and stuff

what really URL field type is for if nobody can use the display format, if i use the url field type and hyperlink for display format the links that user fills in redirects to a blocked page by mod_security 

its been almost 7 days im creating topics asking for help for a simple setting i want and not mentioning how many days i was trying on my own and literally waiting morethan 12 hours for a useless support ticket replies about this situation :rolleyes:

EDIT: after 9 days of ticket and replies finally turns out that there is an issue with the URL field type now i have to wait until next update to be fixed 

Sometimes I ask myself if there are any automated test-cases within the IPS development ...
