Custom Profile Fields
« on: March 23, 2008, 03:47:55 PM »
if you used [Unknowns] tutorials to create custom profile fields do these get updated with the forum or do you lose all the existing data in these fields. I havent actually tried yet too busy looking round atm.

I would assume they stick around, not sure. You can always "remod" your new forum if they don'.

one thing i realized is that, unlike the Custom Profile Mod for the 1.x smf, the default custom profile for 2.0 beta 3 smf doesn't allow you to structure the fields as you like. You can't insert a line before or after them

Can you use HTML with them? I assume you can add an extra couple of <br />

If you create custom fields then the data will not be lost in updates fwitt, unless it totally truncates tables which I doubt would happen in any upgrade process.
