New Profile Field: Host

Discussions of any technical geektastic discussion-type thingies related to the administration of these forums that the rest of us nontechnical non-geektastic discussion-type people would find utterly uninteresting.

New Profile Field: Host

Postby Delphinan » Mon Jun 03, 2013 12:34 am

To supplement the Demon game characters on this forum, a new custom profile field has been added: Host.

This field is 35 characters long and can be updated by the user through the User Control Panel (Profile tab). The value entered will appear on the user's Profile page for others.

As a special addition, a non-blank host value will also appear for any posts by the user when the user's account is of rank 'Demon'. In such cases, the rank 'Demon' that appears below the user's name will then appear as 'Demon of ', followed by the host value.

This new profile field and special addition update has been done to the prosilver, progreen, propurple & subsilver2 templates of the Larp forum only. For these, the template file viewtopic_body.html was modified to use the PROFILE_HOST_VALUE field if set, filtered by the RANK_TITLE value.

Please let me know if there are any concerns, problems, or suggestions for this new functionality.

The field description is now changed to 'Host Alternate' instead of 'Host'. This supports the usage of the new rank of 'Host' which has similar usage of the field as the existing rank of 'Demon', and will support character accounts named for the host rather than the supernatural persona.

Display with the Rank Title is also changed from "[Demon|Host] of <hostname" to "[Demon|Host] (aka <hostname>)"
