About Me page on Profile

Post by Chromo on April 19th 2016, 3:13 pm

Forumotion should do the "About Me" page on profile. Where bbcodes and such are allowed. That way, the profile page will not look so simple if it's been implemented, and gives more information about the user. Sometimes you have to go on a user's post to know who he is. The following is the reason why it should be added:
  • Gives more information about the user
  • Profile won't look simple
  • The profile page will feel more a lot like a real profile
  • It will act like a profile field, but with bbcodes and such allowed


IPB and vbulliten already have this feature, it will be good if forumotion too!

This can be achieved by creating a profile field that's a Text Zone ( Not Field -- Zone ! ). The text zone can format bbcode, therefore you can make a little summary of yourself with images, colors, links, etc...



The majority of bbcodes work in the text zone, so you can make a little summary in the editor and then paste it into your text zone. Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it sounds similar to what you mentioned. Oh lastly, people tend to mix the text field and text zone profile field types up here's the difference :

Text Fields CANNOT format bbcode or insert line breaks.
Text Zones CAN format bbcode and insert line breaks.

Thanks for that but I'm talking about own page for "About Me". That way, it's more creative and can be used easily, since it's going to have a editor.
