XF 1.1 Extra Custom User Field Display

I made a new custom user field (/admin.php?user-fields/add), I was wondering if it was possible to make that custom user field be displayed when a user posts a thread/reply.

Here is an example, using the skype user field (I just edited that custom page, every page is not like this):

I am pretty sure there is no setting for this. But, I was hoping you guys could help me edit a template. So that after the template is edited, it shows that user field when users post.

When adding or editing a field there is this option you need to enable:

General Options: Viewable in message user info

In addition, make sure this is enabled in your style:

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

Now when a user enters a value into that field it will show in their posts.
