[ Improve the Personalized Profile - Edit Mode ]

Post by zakir321 on February 16th 2008, 5:00 am

This is a suggestion about improving the Personalized Profile, or it's appearance, to be more precisely.

The actual Issue:

You know, this is how people see this fields when they have edit-permissions:


You can see that all those people wont see the actual profile field - they will just see the code box with the html-codes inside. This is pretty annoying when using these fields e.g. for RPG's where people with edit-rights also participate. They won't see their own items, badges or images. And i think that it's even worse when you made the field editable by all users for example. The Admin will in general see only code snippets as well, unless it's also visible in the posters profile nearby the posts... =/

My suggestion for a solution:

In my opinion it would be much better, if those field would show the normal 'preview' (the pictures or whatever you put in those fields) by default. The "modify" button would then be used to start the edit-mode, where the code box appears and you can change the html or BBcode. Clicked again, and the changes are being saved (text on the button should then say 'Save' or something).

A rather small suggestion i admit, but I think that would make those feature much more attractive. Please vote if you agree or disagree and post the reason here. Thank you! Lol



Hope thats actually the appropriate section, considered to put that in problems section. But I'm pretty sure that isn't already a feature of forumotion. Very Happy

I think this is a great option. Even if it is only a small suggestion, it can be great, solving more than one problem.

Yes, it's not really a big suggestion, but I still think it could make the pers. profile feature much more user-friendly.

*bump* by the way. Very Happy

So basically you are saying you want WYSIWYG for the profile fields?

hm... that could be an idea as well. it would just be nice to see the actual bbCodes and html-codes rendered in the profiles by default - just as it would looks when a member watches the profile that does not have editing permissions.

The only problem I might see with this, is that if you wanted to recall the codes you used, you won't be able to, because it is showing the actual pictures or whatever you added.

Cases where I think one might want to recall those codes is when helping someone else who wants the same thing, and you couldn't go copy and paste it to them, or if you had another forum and wanted to transfer the same thing to that forum, and you forget the code, you might not be able to retrieve it then.

I hope that makes sense.

lol, i sense a conspiration!

I'll try to explain it again:

I'd like to have an "edit" button allows you to view and edit the code of the personalized profiles. When you made your changes, you'd hit save and the pictures show up again.

EDIT: this should also answer your previous argument, skittles:

The only problem I might see with this, is that if you wanted to recall the codes you used, you won't be able to, because it is showing the actual pictures or whatever you added.

YES! ! !

if you have some typo in your HTML, theres no way to see, because only other members that are not you can see the actual published html..

(why?)

The profile is the place to edit.. ~ your profile view should be for viewing...???

I would also like to add that the following should be enabled with these codes
for example I put in a html code in the admin panel
Code:

<embed src="http://card.mygamercard.net/TDP+Drakaneo.swf" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="198" height="135">
</embed>

now I would prefer only changing this TDP+Drakaneo, so when members want to change this, they can fill in there own like Bas instead of TDP+Drakaneo
Code:

<embed src="http://card.mygamercard.net/Bas.swf"
classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="198" height="135">
</embed>
they can fill that in , in the profile in a border like this



if that could be realised that would be sweet

I know this possible because I know a board that supports it, its one of IPB boards. hope you guys can do it
