    Default New User Profile Fields

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    There has been a lot of talk about operating systems and computer specifications on the forum recently and as these details often relate to the questions being asked, I thought it would be sensible to provide the opportunity for members to add these details to their profile.

    So, you'll find 3 new profile fields in your Edit Profile form. They are Operating System, Computer Specification and Monitor. I've added details to my own profile so that you can see the sort of thing you might want to include.

    These new profile fields are optional, you don't need to fill them in but I think it may provide useful information for those looking for hardware specifications.

    I visited a vBulletin forum recently where users had entered the same type of info, and as you hovered over a user name in a thread - this info appeared as a "tooltip" or "bubble" -- pretty neat.

    I guess this is some sort of vBulletin add-on.

    There are a number of mods that will do that and I think it might be useful here. Can you give me a link to the forum where you saw this?

    After a bit of work, I should be able to have these details available from each members post.

    OK, that forum is actually based on phpBB but I am working on something similar for vB now. I'll let you know when there's something to see.

    David, would it be an idea to give some people an idea of where to look on their machine so that they are able to populate these options ?

    Wow! Yes, this project grows by the minute. Er, when I've got this thing working I'll get onto that unless someone else...?

    David, I only see the "Computer Details" link when in the "vBulletin Default" style.

    In the 2 "CADTutor" styles, it doesn't show up.
