  • Hi again, I see its possible to use <img-elements for icons, but it would be nice to get this implemented perfectly in this excellent plugin also.

    I.e. an icon to indicate male / female, an icon before links, etc.

    I imagine if I put an icon for male now i.e. its not searchable.

    It really is an amazing plugin this, so excellent if it can be completed to be suited for the dating / look for a partner scene.

    (Also I miss the calulating of age based on birth date, and search on this... i.e. from 18 to 24.)


  • Hello,

     i would to ask about possibility protect selection type of profile. Example profile list "Mudr,Pdh,Ing,Bc"

    I would give change ne user choice profile withou Mudr. Have you aby intention how I will provided it?

    thank you.

  • Is it possible to link in Facebook Connect to this...?

  • I know Jeroen is working hard, but man I am dying for a 1.7 update...

  • @TahoeBilly I tried it in 1.7 and it works.

  • @elHayaze not the multi select dropdown! ;)

  • Works fine, but I cant tile or set the background image options.

    They dont show up at all. Any idea on how to get these options to actually work...?

    Would also be nice to have this plugin coded into a premium system with a time limit on. I.e. 1-3-6 and 12 month of payment for the usage.

    After each periode then the user had to insert a code for further usage.



  • @Lifeform what background options ???

  • can't wait for the 1.7 update - hope the date picker is compatible with Kev's event calendar plugin.

    Happy Elgging and may the force be with Jereon!...

  • jereon I can't wait for the 1.7 version

  • and plz try to fix the accordion thing :)

  • @Zenzoon: I have made a post the 3rd page of this plugin which might be helpful for you about the Accordian manu.


    I have been able to have the accordian functionality working on Elgg 1.6.1, not exactly like the screenshot though.

    Copy the codes from this directory


    and paste it on this directory


    Save it, upload it on server and re-enable the Profile Manager plugin.

    Make sure you have the Select how the different categories are displayed on the profile is set to Accordian.

  • I tried prepare own funcionality on profile manager where metadata for entity user will retried as row table in JQGrid. Problem is when metadata example "surname" set privilege parameter not Public function  profile_manager_get_categorized_fields() not return data. Privilege Friends not return data too.


  • Was wondering if anyone could help please?

    I maybe (more than likely am being quite dense) but I just cant get this plug-in to work, having tried it in both 1.6.1 and 1.7.

    I can get it so my custom fields show up on the register form, but for the life of me nothing comes up on the users profile page, and when I click 'Edit Profile' it just refreshes the page.

    I was wondering whether there was any documentation for this plug-in, or whether someone would be prepared to message me with an idea of the extra options that I need to select?

    Many thanks in advance!


  • how can i set a defined profile type for site members instead of default?
