Please make it possible to have custom Profile Fields show up at the Memberlist overview

Post by Dageraad on January 10th 2016, 10:35 pm

As it is now, it is not possible to have custom profile fields show up at the memberlist overview. It is not even possible to have those default profile fields that are not already added to the memberlist template (like 'Zodiac' and 'Chinese Zodiac'), show up. At least, when I asked, noone knew.

However: I do think it is possible, *if* we'd only know what code we have to use in the memberlist_body template. Those fields that are included, are referred to as e.g. memberrow.JOINED, memberrow.LASTVISIT, memberrow.INTERESTS etc.

Some elaboration: Through google I found some other phpBB hosts in which the variable name could fairly easy be deducted from the field name of the custom profile field: a field called "Full Name" was referred to in the memberlist template as memberrow.PROFILE_FULL_NAME_VALUE. However that did not work within Forumotion, I also tried varieties like simply FULL_NAME and FULLNAME because the PROFILE_ and _VALUE parts do not occur on the other names, but that didn't work either. (I actually used SOCIAL_IMPERIALS and variations, because that is the custom profile field that I have been trying it with)

Additionally, if a forum visitor looks at one member's profile, the custom profile fields do show up. So, although I am only a guessing layman, I would think that it shouldn't be too difficult at all to have it show up in the memberlist overview!


So, this is my suggestion Smile

I hope more people want this, and support the suggestion.

Thanks for your time!

Only 5 votes sofar? All of them 'agree' Smile but I had presumed / hoped on more support, especially because

  1. it is not a far-fetched idea
  2. it seems fairly easy to implement

So, please vote "yes" unless you think it's awful and/or will draw the dev team's time and attention away from your much more urgent / desirable suggestions!
