New Member Profile Pages
« on: May 13, 2020, 06:44:09 pm »
For a while now I have wanted to expand on the profile section that came with the forum software, today I have spent time doing just that.

Briefly, every member can now have a custom biography (or however you want to use it) on their profiles.

Here's mine that I made today: https://aidreams.co.uk/forum/profile/?area=summary;u=2

You can see that you are able to insert images as well as text. It uses BB Code - those tags we use in the forum, so italics, bold, smilies and so on. I think anything available in the forum is okay to use. Most HTML is not allowed and will only be rendered and not be active - so you should be able to post code there okay - you can use the same [code] tags as we already use in the forum, which is prefered.

Links/URLs will get by okay, they will show like they do in the forum when you post a link - all ready to click.

There isn't an editor, just a box to enter your bio - you might be able to find an editor online, but as it's mostly text it probably won't be too bad. Perhaps write your body of text first in your favourite text editor and then work on how to insert the images after.

Images need to be a URL, there is no provision for uploading images - so you'd need to have your image hosted somewhere like Imgur which I use a lot and find okay. However, a work around is that you can link to images that are attached to forum posts - so if there is a need I can make a thread where we can all do that.

Here's a list of SMF BB Codes that you can use. In addition to those there are also a couple of new ones that I added which align images left or right:

[imgleft]https://your/image/url/here.jpg[/imgleft]
[imgright]https://or/your/image/url/here.jpg[/imgright]

Please do use the secure https in the URL - I think I did something a while ago to auto rewrite those somewhere though.

If you want to get started go to your profile and Modify Profile -> Forum Profile as per attachment. The new field is at the bottom, it's a text box where you paste your text, then hit save.

If you get stuck feel free to ask for help. If it doesn't interest you then that's fine, your profile will remain pretty much the same as always, I just styled it a little better than it was for mobiles.

For those interested, lets see your new profiles in this thread when you have made them  O0

Edit: Not sure if the new CSS is kicking in, people may need to reload the page (CTRL + f5 usually). This is what the new profile should look like:

There exist some rules interwoven within this world. As much as it is a blessing, so much it is a curse.

I also made a discovery writing mine. Because our universe has finite laws, we have evolved to maintain our forms and not act "random". Let that sink in. Non-random physics = maintains form. Random=change/death.

Actually a video game with laws doesn't result in creatures maintaining their forms, duplication/imitation of structures does, and thinking, etc.... Still, non-randomness is needed for maintaining form...

Edit:
I updated mine.
Oh....check back in 10 minutes, found a new discovery in it.
Now read it, much more interesting!


BTW I feel the new description is a bit hidden being off the white panel, and harder to read as well.

Very nice Lock, maybe an image might lift it

But please keep this thread on topic  O0

Could you rephrase that please - I'm not sure what you mean? Do you mean the left side with all the data?

When I view a profile, I see age, name, etc etc, on a white Summary panel, and the new biography space is below, but it in in dark letters on a dark background and is harder to read a bit and people may even miss it as if it is part of the website - it's not on the white Summary panel.

Cool feature. I never know what to say in these things, so I just added more AI stuff.  ;D  My general paradigm for what I'm personally striving for.
