Customising the layout with custom user fields - Now you see it ...

This is a simple guide explaining how custom user fields can be used to customise the layout and allow members to have some form of control over the content, depending on the options you provide.

For the purposes of this guide, we will be creating a checkbox for members to opt out of seeing the forum statistics in the sidebar.

Hi Brogan

I have created an html widget and let the members themselves choose whether they want to see it or not.
Thanks to your instructions, it was easy going.

I show the widget in the forums and in the thread overview.


I want to hide the widget for guests. Can I combine different display conditions in one widget?

And if so, what is the display condition to hide a widget for guests?
