    Hi everybody,

    I'm looking for a way to add links to some sort of "personal threads" to the "user details area" below the avatar in posts.

    in detail:
    we are a car drivers community and have a specific subforum, in which every user may create a presenting thread for a car.
    Let us call the user "Jack", the subforum "garage" and the car "2013 BMW 3Series".
    Jack creates a thread in the subforum garage with the thread title 2013 BMW 3Series.

    after that a custom field appears with a link to the personal thread in the "user details area" below the avatar wich says:
    2013 BMW 3Series

    IF Jack is extremely good at work and earn few extra bucks for writing XF-Addons ;) , he might be able to buy the all new Corvette. Of course he would like to create a 2nd thread in garage. The title would be 2015 Corvette C7 Z06.

    so in posts below Jacks avatar would be like this:
    2013 BMW 3Series
    2015 Corvette C7 Z06

    an automation of this is only via an (non existant?) AddOn possible, right?

    but as a "fast solution": Is it possible to get the custom fields to show those links and threadtitles, like "search for this users threads in those subforum" or just one or two empty custom fiels, where the users can paste the link to and title of the thread?

    You may want to hit @Bob B up and see if his Showcase add-on can be modded to do something like this. I have it (as well as @MattW) set up as a Garage feature on forums we run.

    This is what I've got Showcase set up like for a Garage: http://z22se.co.uk/garage/

    It doesn't show the link to their garage under their avatar, but it does show on their profile page.

    Here is what the link that @Bob B provided to the modification looks like on my site.

    It links to their showcase profile page that lists ALL their items. What you can probably do is create a custom user field that each individual could link directly to a specific item (or resource or album etc).
