Solved Custom Profile Field - Creating a Hyperlink

Post by Henry Rollins on January 19th 2011, 12:13 am

Hi. I'm new here and help administrate a gaming forum. What we are trying to do is simple but has our skills in a conundrum.

In the profile field which accompanies every user's post and identifies his/her name, rank, post count, the name of his/her country (etc.) we are trying to create a link to the webpage which represents that country rather than simply displaying the name.

I appreciate any help anyone can give in this matter. I have looked around but haven't encountered any solutions.

Once again, we are trying to create a link in the user's profile field which accompanies every post he/she makes.

For example: Rollinsylvania (enabling this hyperlink to appear in the custom profile field)

Our forums: http://unscalliance.forumotion.com/forum

Thank you for your time.

To clarify, users will be able to input text so that they can tell the link where to go.

I found what I was doing wrong. If anyone has a similar problem, when you are creating your custom profile field make sure you create it as a TEXT ZONE instead of a TEXT FIELD.
