  • How do I add fields to the user profiles?

    I've been searching through this MySpace Modules pages for some help but I still haven't seen some one explain it, and I am on page 30+. So I thought maybe some one here would have the answer. Here is the mods page

    Here is what it says
    This is an example of my MEMBERINFO (screenshots below), I consider it a 90% myspace clone. PLEASE NOTE: I use avatars in this example AS a profile picture. So if you use a profile picture, you need to change it to show a profile picture instead of an avatar. Or if you like it, disable profile pics on your board via vBulletin Options. I find users are more confused with having a profile pic AND an avatar, so I did this to simplify the process for them. I use a max avatar size of 170x170, I think it looks good and consistant throughout the forum.

    Here is some quick reference on the profile fields I used.

    About Me Multiple-Line Text Box field8
    Location Single-Line Text Box field2
    Music Multiple-Line Text Box field3
    Movies Multiple-Line Text Box field4
    Who I'd like to meet Multiple-Line Text Box field25
    Books Multiple-Line Text Box field27
    Heroes Multiple-Line Text Box field31
    TV Multiple-Line Text Box field32
    Sex Single-Selection Radio Buttons field5
    Interests Multiple-Line Text Box field6
    Myspace URL Single-Line Text Box field9
    Video Multiple-Line Text Box field10
    Orientation Single-Selection Menu field14
    Ethnicity Single-Selection Menu field16
    Smoker Single-Selection Radio Buttons field17
    Marital Status Single-Selection Menu field15
    Drinker Single-Selection Radio Buttons field18
    Education Single-Selection Menu field23
    I am here for: Multiple-Selection Checkbox field24
    Children Single-Selection Menu field22
    CSS Multiple-Line Text Box field35

    Here is what some one suggests

    create a plugin name the way you want in member_complete

    then paste this

    if (!is_object($bbcode_parser))
    require_once(DIR . '/includes/class_bbcode.php');
    $bbcode_parser =& new vB_BbCodeParser($vbulletin, fetch_tag_list());
    $userinfo['field1'] = $bbcode_parser->parse($userinfo['field1'],0, true);
    just change the field number to what u want and repeat the step for each field u wanna to be able to parse bbcode
    I've added some of the fields, but this is what I seem to be getting when I add them as this person suggests above.

    Just says the same thing I put for the bio's about me in every field.

    Any suggestions? I don't see any where in my usercp to change these fields?
