Custom titles

Post by Dom on September 16th 2011, 11:51 pm

Is there any way to give the members the ability to make their own forum title?

I think I know what you mean. You want your users to be able to create their own cust ranks right?

I have this on my own forum Very Happy
But the link to the code (if it is what you are asking) is only available to phpbb3 or invision

And where can I see what phpbb my forum is? I think that my forum is phpbb cause it's old, but if I create a new one then I won't be able to make those promotions banners visible only for guests so that me and my members won't have them.

Is there anything else that can be done?

You can try this.

Goto Admin Panel > Users & Groups > Profiles > Profile fields and press Add
Fill the fields like this and then click the save button.

Type : Text field
Name : Custom title (give it any name you want)
Description : Write the description of it
URL icon : Leave it blank
Necessarily filled ? Yes/No
Display : Tick Profile and Messages or one of them
Display type : Text
Who can modify the profile field value ? Member(if you want you can select Moderators)
Display this field for users that are at least : Member
Separator : Back to the line

Okay this is how it looks on my old forum



Now below the name and above the Founder pic I want to change that title to a custom title that users can change themselves. I'll make those pics (if I didn't already) to go to every member and every group so that all members of a certain group have that same pic. and incredible_fear, that what you suggested is below the picture (called it Test).

So any way that this can be done without creating a brand new forum?

So, do you want the custom title to be an image not a text?

No no, I want the custom title to be above the image where the current forum rank (in text) is... not down there below the image. Is that possible?

I've figured out how to make custom titles for people (text), but I can't figure out how to get rid of the field name. Can anyone help?

For example, I just want it to say "member" instead of "Custom Title: Member" but typing a field name is required.

The only way to do it is through javascript.
Create a field name to which the member will type in there custom rank, then write the javascript to detect this field in their post profile, and replace the current rank with there custom rank.

Thanks for the advice. Is there an example javascript I can plug in to make that happen? Again, I just want a custom text title below the user's avatar, so for example I could have it say "Super Member" under their pic instead of "Custom Title: Super Member" or whatever. Even if I just insert a blank space in the field name, I get a : showing up, so I guess a script maybe is needed?

Yup, once the javascript detects and finds the Custom Title. I'd recommend using the subtring object to take out the content wanted, then replacing the whole thing with just the substring.

For example Custom Title: ME
Use a split() or subtring() to load 'ME' into a varable then replace the whole custom title with just that variable, leaving only 'ME'.

Thanks. Any chance you could dumb it down for me and give me a cut & paste version of what I could use (and tell me where -- I'd assume custom CSS). If you don't have the time, that's cool too and at least you steered me in the right direction!
