Adding additional profile fields to members list page

Post by mr_William on July 22nd 2010, 1:43 am

I'd like to add an option in the 'users & groups' > 'Profile' section within the admin panel to allow additional profile fields to be added to the memberlist page.





Currently, the option to display profile fields is limited to display them within 'profile' and 'messages'.

My proposed idea would then add the 'memberlist' option to the page.

a graphic to show the addition of the memberlist button in context:


My usage

I'm currently running a forum for an online gameing community. Some statistical information is used and being able to hold that within the users profile and view the communitys stats in one place, while being able to use the filters the memberlist page offers would be greatly beneficial to us.

As well as using it for holding stats, I'd use it for conducting a census of sorts, holding an 'active'/'inactive' multiple choice field, which would be periodically reset by the admin to allow our users to see who's still involved within the community.




Thanks in advance for any comments for/against the suggestion, also similar solutions to the problem would be welcome!

Will

This would make things quicker to have access to other profile fields in the memberlist. Voted yes.

It's true it's a bit curious why you can add fields but not show them all clown

anymore support on this would be welcomed!

On another note, is there any info/threads some one could give me to indicate how the updates are chosen, and the time frame we'd be looking at before they're implemented?

it seems a lot of the threads reguarding this i've found are out of date and unfortunately not too informative!

Thanks for any help with that and to the guys who've voted so far!

Will this be added? Will forumotion let us know if they add it? Is there a way to get them to add it?

no, they don't have control over their own employees (techies) i guess, or they're busy They'll say they will look at it, if it ends in the accepted suggestions it will maybe, but the process takes around 1-3 years.

Forumotion doesn't have control over their employees? That's the dumbest thing I have heard....

the process takes around 1-3 years.
That sucks!

Dude, leave your garden... outside your lungs clown

ForuMotion has control over their techies. the ones they don't control with a firm hand are the support teams who are freebies and hence are only guided.
Then, it doesn't take 1-3 years but the time to code, debug and publish. This can range from 1 month to a year.
Check your information before spilling milk Very good

caihelm! that sounds like a much more agreeable time frame!

appologies if it's stirred things up; asking about the time it takes for the selected suggestions to be implemented!

thanks for all the positive responces though, not one negative!

I knew there was something wrong with that.. If I am paying to have someone program a site, they BEST do it the way I want! LOL I'm not paying for this, so I'm not going to get worked up about it. Though this would be pretty darn cool..

Thanks for the support MrMario, was shocked at first, seeing the 'I vote no' comment!...

Whats the next stage in the process for the 'accepted ideas'?

does this need so many votes to become prioratised and accepted before being implemented?

Cheers

Don't get your hopes up though. If this does get the techs interest, it will be a long while before you hear about it again. 17 votes means almost nothing.

seems a lot of the support has fizzled out on this one!

i still believe it's a great idea that would benefit many users!
