  • So Jerome,


    Is there a way that members can hide their data speck or choose what items to show to individual members on an individual basis?

  • ok this has got to be a silly one, but my profiles are blank, I have a name at the top, a picture, and the list of options but none of the info, if i click on 'Full Profile' it is there, how do i get it to the general peofile page? Oh sorry, love the mod, great work.


  • @webnovice the default functionality of Elgg is that you can control every profile field and allow viewing access to specific people. The access control on your edit profile is the right way to control the visibility of your profile information.

    @jessica are the fields filled with data? Only then they will show up on the profile page.

  • The datepicker is showing one day off of date picked.

  • Hi Jeroen, thanks for this great module.


    I have a slightly problem : when I use a textarea for one field, and when I use list on it <li><ul>...</ul></li> the module has a weird behaviour : the list appears on the top of my profile, and one more time at the good place (in the correct field).


    For example, if I add a "Description of your video devices" and if someone want to write :

    "I have :

    • TV
    • VCR
    • DVD


    Then, at the top of my profile I'll see TV/VCR/DVD, and then my profile ans usual, with the abovementionned fiel (this time at the correct spot).


    I tried different configurations, and it seems it comes from your plugin. Any ideas where the bug could come from?

  • sir could give me an idea on how to add a search hook my replace profile field.

    by the way i refer to the replace profile field .
