Overview:

This product allows you to designate those profile fields which do not have a default value, are not hidden and are editable by users as required to be filled in by your users. You may exclude users by usergroup and/or username. You may also exclude scripts so that your users will have partial access to your forums until they meet the requirements. You may also choose to allow your users a certain number of "grace posts" before they are required to complete their profile.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Backup/Warning:

This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

To Install:
  1. Download and extract the attached .zip file.
  2. Follow AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product.
  3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  4. Click "Import."
  5. You MUST enable the product in the settings before it will function.
  6. Configure the remaining settings to your liking. Each setting has a detailed explanation of its use.

Any way to have a forum selection added and have the profile info posted in the forum selected by user choice?

Do you mean a user could select in which forums each profile field would appear in their postbit? If so, this isn't part of the intended purpose of this product. :)

No I mean so it makes a new post in a selected forums of choice with the users profile fields selected in the mod...

Example:

Forum of choice: Introductions

Title: username

Info: biography location occupation etc...

So, you mean anytime a user modifies any of the profile fields set as required by this product, a post is made in a thread to show what that user has entered for those fields, as a means of verifying that they simply haven't entered something meaningless just to get around the restriction?

If so, I can see how that might be useful, and I may consider this for a future update. :)

Basically so the required fields make a new post in the specific forum selected, i would have a forum called introductions and then the member that filled in the profile fields correctly it would be posted in that forum...

Just an idea but maybe the profile about me has a hook you can use and have it make a post in a certain forum...

Please take a second to mark as installed if you want continuing support. :)

I am unable to replicate that error...the product runs without error on both my vB 4.2.x dev sites. :confused:

This is not going to work with vB 5.x.

There is already a way to force a user to define profile fields in vB5.x

How is it different from the required option in vbulletin 4?
