XF 1.5 Custom user field not showing on posts

    Hey all.

    What would cause a custom user field not to show up on posts? I have the option checked in message elements and it does display for other users. It's just myself (and maybe another admin) that it doesn't work for.
    Is there an option I've missed somewhere?

    These are the relevant settings:

    Admin CP -> Users -> Custom User Fields
    > General Options: Viewable in message user info

    Admin CP -> Appearance -> Style Properties -> Message Elements -> Show custom user fields

    Try a default style? Disable addons?

    Default style and disabling addons did not fix. Custom fields still displayed for everyone else.

    Try changing the value in the field. Is it any different?

    Yes. I changed it to display in Personal Details and now it shows. Before it was in Contact Details, and I'd like to keep it that way.

    I was referring to editing your profile. You said it was specific to you.

    That said, with this extra detail, it's down to your "View your identities" privacy setting. Only people that display them publicly will have the value shown with the post.
