  • [Forum] Adding Custom Text Fields Under Avatar?

    I have seen vBulletin forums where custom fields have been added under the avatar - viewable on the left within threads. Is it possible to add custom info in this area (seen below) and how?

    Yes, those are called profile fields. You can find them in the Admin CP -> User Profile fields.

        Thanks for the quick info! I had been playing around in the User Profile fields area of the CP, but I can't seem to get them to show up under the avatars (as seen in my screenshot). I didn't realize it meant possibly making direct changes to the code - I will take a look at the link for instructions on how to do it. I am not too crazy about adding extra lines of code - I am little worried that a future update may cause problems with the changes I make. Thanks again!

          Adding the line of code worked and really wasn't that big a deal. Thanks Lynne!
