Solved Which contact option will let me put an option for Twitter in people's contact fields?

Post by Doktoroktopus on March 18th 2013, 2:31 am

I need a contact option (i.e. Skype, MSN, ICQ...) that will allow me to fit people's Twitter handles in. I also need one for people's Playstation Network IDs, because my 5 letter ID won't work.

There needs to be a way to have a fully customizable field for contact options. Restricting people based on the options available on forumotion is a really good way to become outdated, fast!

While you cannot to my knowledge add more contact fields to the contact page you can create new profile fields.

You can create new contact fields:

Administration Panel > Users & Usergroups > Users > Profiles
Contact Tab
Press the green X to create a new field.

I already know this. The issue is being able to create a contact field that isn't restricted to the "types" that are provided on the site. I can't find a "type" that allows Twitter handles or Playstation Network IDs that don't require a set amount of characters.

"While you cannot to my knowledge add more contact fields to the contact field you can create new profile fields."

Sorry, can you expand on this, in reference to what I just clarified above?

I was wrong in what I said. So its not relevant anyway.

What I've done on past forums is I've created on the profile tab in which members can add in their PSN ID.

While its not the same as it being on the contact tab, you can have as little or as much letters as you want. Its proven to work well for me.

Ahhh I see what you mean. Okay, maybe I'll try that. Thank you Derri!
