Ok, so a person can have up to four text lines in their display thing, then, correct?

Primary Group
Post Group
Custom Title
Picture Caption Text

Is there any way to get more?  I could deal with those four, I guess.

Right now, I see having the additional groups listed as a mod.  I'm sure someone would be willing to write one (thought Cheschire was, in fact?) for you, but I don't think it's that useful for most of the user base.

I don't want to bother anyone with something like that.  It's not a top priority.  I can just use "Reviewed Vendor" as the title and "Site Owner" or "Ambassador" as the Primary Groups...  I don't think any site owners will ever also be ambassadors, so it should be ok.  Also, being an RV shouldn't grant any more permissions (at least, I can't think of any right now), so it would be fitting as just a title and not a member group.

uhh... nope. wasn't. could add it to my todo list tho.

can't you just add the extra titles you want for a person, as custom titles in their profile? showing all the groups by default for everyone, could be messy on the left of those messages, wouldn't it?

I know, what I mean is, why do a mod for it if custom titles could be enough (-_^)

custom titles isnt automatic tho. this would automatically list all groups the person is a part of.

The problem arises when a person is rather dynamic in nature and qualifies for numerous things.  AFAIK, you can only have a single Custom Title.

I don't think it would be all that difficult to add more text fields as needed...

Why not allow more than one custom title (in the same text field) separated by commas or something?

Wouldn't they be rather useless otherwise?

Tyris

yeah, thats part of the template system...
what I meant to say in the last post is that Admins can now add profile fields for users to fill in and of course display them anywhere in the template...

Not necessarily...you could have some things you want to show up in a profile view but not every time someone posts. Can't think of any right now, but I'm sure there are some... lol ::)

Okay, that's cool...what about profile fields that are restricted where only Admins can edit them?

That can also be done, of course ;).

Cool...then I guess that would solve the multiple custom titles problem. ;D
