Display username system?

    You could nullify having to change usernames if you put in a "display name" system.

    Every member selected what their username [looked like], and you'd do less work.

    Might you be able to link us to the hack, and / or an example of the hack?

    Please keep in mind, prop still has to upgrade from 3.6.8 to 3.7.0.

    ACP --> Templates --> Modify --> Extend --> Postbit templates --> Postbit

    Replace
    Code:
    <normalfont><b>$post[username]</b></normalfont><br>
    with
    Code:
    <normalfont><!-- <b>$post[username]</b></normalfont><br> --><b>$userinfo[field7]</b><br>
    Replace "7" with your custom profile field number.

    Take out the <!-- --> if you want both to be displayed.

    Also change
    Code:
    <b>$userinfo[field7]</b><br>
    with
    Code:
    <i>$userinfo[field7]</i><br>
    This is, however, just an optional thing.

    Might make everything a bit more complicated, but you know, this is generally what I'm talking about.

    Source?...

    Where did you find this information?

    The cake is invisible, sir.

    But assuming I got that from somewhere, why is that even pertinent?
  8. Diabolikal Rapture MPAA's Nightmare

    Because it needs to be a valid source. I'm not going to stick a code in just because it seems like it'll work. It might be an exploit for all we know. Unless you got it from VB, we ain't puttin it in.
  9. Lanza Well-Known Member

    I'm sure VB has some if you look.

    I'm not going to bother to do anything until Prop upgrades the site just in case something goes wrong and he has to do another restore. But we will look into this. I'll make sure of it sir. :D
