Contact YIM and AIM Buttons Not Appearing + Contact Field Issues

Post by Ailyn on April 2nd 2017, 10:10 am

Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB3

Concerned browser(s) : Google Chrome

Forum link : ( link is hidden, you must reply to see )

Description of problem

So, when filling in contact information for several messengers yahoo and AIM, no information appears on the profile (ICQ is empty because I don't have one).

Not sure why this is happening. I'd like to change it so instead of it being a link to whatever program its attached to, I'd like it to just show the username for the person to look up. How can I go about doing this?

I'd also love to add custom contact info for Discord but when I tried to make a contact option, it would never confirm the information entered into the text box.

Mind you, this is an entirely brand new page being worked on here and my fiance and I are utterly confused. Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

Are you filling out the information on the profile field inside the Admin Panel or the profile display when you click their username?

I'm trying to fill in the info on my own profile from outside of the admin panel. So basically, trying to do what a normal user would do.

Are you able to edit it just fine outside of the admin panel then?

No, I can't make that information appear in the normal profile section either.

It's possible you don't have the edit button active. Check to be sure.

Admin Panel --> Display --> Pictues and Colors --> Pics Management --> Buttons --> Field Edit --> Should be this

I can add text to each of those boxes, but when I confirm them, it all disappears. Like, if I add my facebook address, the facebook button pops up. But when I put my YIM address in and confirm, nothing happens. It acts like I've never entered any information.

Hmm, I see what you mean. Same thing happens on my site unfortunately.

EDIT: Okay, so I got the Yahoo to work since it has to be an email. As for the AIM, I simply put 'testing' in there and it worked.
