XF 1.2 Change Identities Section


Well-known member
I have plans to link the Identities Section of the user's Contact Information to various Icons that will display in their posts.

To do this however, I need to figure out two things that I was hoping someone could help me with.

1. The ability to change the name of the service or completely remove some... ie... changing "AIM" to Twitch or removing AIM completely.

2. The ability to allow these fields to accept the full URL to the user's respective page or profile. For example, the Twitter section does not let you use a full URL.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

PS- I realize "Accept" is spelled wrong.

You can edit/delete/add existing and new identities in the Custom User Fields section in the ACP.

You can decide which characters can be permitted using value match requirements, regex or a PHP callback.

Wait seriously? It's just a Custom User Field? I'm over here looking through "form.css" thinking it was a template edit. Thanks.
