In defense of the "Support" staff, they have tried to help me in the past with other issues. I imagine like anyone else they get tired and frustrated or have their own projects to follow.

True, but I still feel that it's the Mod author's responsability to follow up on his work.

QuoteI have bumped my question three times now with no response from the author so I feel the pain. A simple "No, get lost!" would have been good enough for me.

Ditto, if the author isn't interested in persuing his work, he should hand it over to someone else to finish, pull it off the MOD database or like you said, tell people to get lost. I know that these authors are working for free but why start something then just drop it? Better off not letting people down...

try asking for help on phpBB forums, you wont get very far, and tiny portal are just as bad.

I wouldn't say that, I'm constantly in contact with 2 MOD authors on phpBB and they are quite responsive and helpful. As a matter of fact, I applied certain MODs which interfered with others thus "messing-up" my board that I almost started from scratch until one of these authors went into my site (gave him Admin privileges and FTP access) and he worked on my installation, corrected every error, fine tuned all pages and even installed certain MOD's which I wanted but was afraid to install due to past mistakes.

And as I mentioned before, phpBB's custom profile fields MOD is just fantastic, not only that you can add all kinds of fields (text, textboxes, radio buttons, drop-down boxes) but you can also change the behaviour of the phpBB default fields (turn them on or off, change the order of those fields, etc.).

Wouldn't you like that kind of Community spirit and help? We're not all coders and it's good to know that some experienced people are ready to lend a hand until we learn enough about php so that we don't need a little "hand holding" once in a while.

Great mod. Using it on SMF 1.1.1. Since BB Code can be used would you consider adding the BBC buttons like this MOD did? Signature BBCode

Maybe if you supplied some details- what other mods you have installed, what errors you have in the error log when creating fields, whether you're using the default theme or a custom theme- someone would be able to help you.  Continued complaining isn't going to get your answer any sooner.

As for features, winrules said he's working on a complete rewrite in 4.0- the SMF codebase just went final about 2 months ago so you can't expect the mod featureset to compete with an older product like phpbb right out of the gate.

There are a number of creators here that also go as far as logging into peoples' boards to fix their problems- it just depends on the person's workload and where they are in their current state of development.

If I were you, I'd wait for the new version, it'll be a complete rewrite...

Seems that no one knows, try sending him a PM, if you're lucky, he might answer you. I tried but to no avail...

If you follow the thread, seems that this version is quite buggy and I sure as heck wouldn't want to mess up a live board with it. Tried it on a fresh install with no other MODs using the default template and had problems.

Patience my friend... We're all waiting for it.

Thank you I was about to install it when I got your first message.  I am very new to all this so I need it to be as trouble free as possible.   Thanks for the info.

hey winrules, whats up.

a while back, a few of us posted this:

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=112606.msg745151#msg745151

in regard to a new version of your mod that would allow custom searches of any profile field that admins might have added to user profiles.

any word on your plans with that? i know you were planning on adding such a feature, just don't know when.

i.e. if someone wants to search all users from "mexico" or all users that are 45 years old etc.

thanks! peace.  ;)

tones_ie

excellant mod...thanks...

I used it to add a Real name on registration...I have it set for admin approval when a new member signs up but how do i get it to email admin the real name (new custom field) along with the normal email it sends out...

thanks in advance

For those patiently waiting - the last post from the author of this MOD appears to be Reply #819 on January 20, 2007. His post read he might be busy with a rework but has not answered any post here since then. Additionally his signature emphasizes not to PM him for support.

We live in a fast-food society, but as I have come to realize, these folks get distracted just like us and patience is usually the order of the day here.

How right you are, just hang tight and wait for the new version.

But I still say that Winrules should post some kind of progress report so people would stop asking questions and wait for it to come out, it only takes a few minutes to write a post...

I am using it on a very active live board with no problems.  Been using this mod since version 2.11, current version for me 3.15 but I'm about to upgrade to 1.1.1 so I will install the latest version of this 3.16 when I do.

I have 28 mods installed and they all work fine together.  This one installs and uninstalls with no problems. 

I had one little issue when moving a field up and down on a previous version now fixed, but apart from that everything is cool.  It also displays on all my themes without me having to change anything *shrug*

The 4.0 version sounds interesting.  I guess if he's not here posting,then you could assume there are no updates/news as yet.

Hi, great mod, thanks.

Just one bug to report.  When a field is moved and is a selection box, it leaves the date behind, making a duplicate entry every time it's moved to a new one.  E.g. CP2_data1, CP2_data2, CP2_data3, etc are left behind if CP2 is moved.

My MODs          Please don't PM me for support, post in the appropriate topic.

You may have installed the mod twice. Check your files to see if the code has been duplicated.

depends on the version but that is either a known bug or something that was fixed - have a look on the mod page to see what's been fixed
