Solved Adding a Link to Custom Profile Field

Post by tlws on August 11th 2010, 7:49 pm

I'm wanting to make a custom profile field that users need to input their usernames from another site that is tied in with our forums. It would be nice if they could just add their username (Example: Lady) instead of having to add it to the end of a link (Example: http://fiction.myadopts.com/profile.php?user=Lady).

Either way, I'd like to make it into a link so people can just click it to view the profile. I can't seem to get it to work properly no matter what I do. (Example can be seen under the Admin badge here: http://fiction.dust.tv/news-info-f3/new-layout-t135.htm#840)

I read a tutorial on here about it, using URL codes for the members to input their usernames. My problem is, every time I attempt that it just shows the link as text and the link code is gone.

I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place or there is already a topic about it. I've been searching the forums for some time now and have been unable to find a solution to my problem. Sad

Thanks for any help in advance.

There is no way of changing the url of the user profile.

That's not what I'm asking. :/

I'm trying to add a custom profile field that shows up under the username/avatar section and in the profile that links to another site.

Here's what's happening (the Fiction Account part):

Now, instead of having that as text, I'd like it to be a URL.

Understand?

Its going to show up like that anyways. You can add an icon and when the icon is clicked it takes you somewhere.

I'd be fine with that, but I can't get it to link properly in the first place and I'd like some help on that.

Forget it. I was adding it as a new custom profile field instead of new contact field. >,<*
