Notice: I would like this a lot right now.

I would like a new column in the database where a product key can be stored for 3rd party ideas. I have an additional column in my database right now which I can't see on my forum anywhere because I would need to make my own mod to show the value.

Basically a new column named: product_key (in smf_members)
Forum profile field which displays the MySQL field's data to only the user & admin can set/change the value accordingly.

This would help a number of software developers to make secure product keys to there application etc.

I currently produce a new key and store it in a hidden column at the moment and it annoys me that I can't see it on my forum unless I mod it.

I may have a go myself but I probably would do something that wasn't secure enough as I have had problems making a secure login.php for a program I am developing.

An API system for login would be a nice thing but security is paramount.

It would do something like this mod does but be there by default:

Kindred

use the feature of 2.0 called custom profile fields....

it can be set to be entered by the user but seen only by the user and admins.

no need for a mod at all.
