        I have added new fields to the User Profile Fields. How can I make these fields viewable under the person's avatar on the main forums?

          Do you mean in the post? Modify the postbit template and add:

          $post[fieldx]

          ...with 'x' being the field id of the field you want shown.

            I like to go over things three times.

            Right now the information that is visible from my account on the forums screen is:

            Name
            Title

            Joined:
            Location:

            Now in user profile fields I asked my users for their automobile type and year. I would like to have those shown under Location.

            So the change I would make is in the user profile fields? I would change the name of the profile field to :

            $post[fieldYear]

            Then continue to set the options of the profile field. Correct?

            I cannot find any information on the location of the postbit template. I have been searching this out. I feel like I am just missing one piece to this puzzle.

            Thanks.

              My answer will do what you want. The postbit template is in the Templates section of the Admin CP.

              Admin CP -> Templates -> Modify -> [expand list] -> Postbit Templates [expand] -> postbit [edit]

                Edit was not an option when I got there. I had to edit the stock postbit for the edit key to appear.

                Thank you very much for the timely replies.

                Now I am screwing around trying to figure out what is the code to add a space. Thankfully I have another site style to mess with so my users will not see their screens go wild when I replace <br> with <tr>. That one got me some funny results.
