So far it seems to work... but I have not yet tested thoroughly. Nominated.

This can develop in a fantastic add-on for VB. Many thanks to the author. Seems to be working ok in my 3.7.

One question only:

It makes profile fields linked only in memberinfo pages. Can it do the same also inside postbit and memberlist?

I found a tiny bug: When you have a 'Single-Line Text Box' it displays the input correct and the inputs are clickable - but it also shows other user fields based on 'Single-line text box' on every users profile page - which they didn't filled out.

In other words:

User fields:
1) Your car
2) Your pet

User A: inputs only his car - which is shown correctly but he didn't input anything about his pet. But user field 2's question/title is still shown on his profile page.

great improvement, thanks very much. Nominated of course.

Little improvement suggestion but probably difficult to realize:
some german umlauts can be spelled in different ways.


Like in Fussball (Soccer). It can also be spelled like this: Fußball

ä = ae
ö = oe
ü = ue

So two queries should be launched:

vBSEOs rewriting code must have a snippet for it somewhere.

all the best,

I really like this mod...

however, whenever I click one of the profile 'tags' it returns 1325 members - regardless of whether there is a match or not.

For example, here is the link that is produced:

No matter what field 3 contains (or any other field for that matter), it results in 1325 members being returned (out of over 14,000).

It appears to have installed correctly, but doesn't appear to be working as designed - at least for me.


Thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Small step of XML Import - big step towards a true community

Thank you so much for this yet another leapfrog towards a community, at the cost of a single-step and painless installation.

Nominated, Voted, Installed with gratitude.

However: multi-line fields are not being analyzed for matches, and this is only a week after I converted most single-line text into text-area in order to encourage our members to be more expressive and verbose on their profile page, which is another necessity of successful social networks.

Also: In response to the German bit about different writing variations, maybe you can use the translation feature to accomplish just that, i.e. "forum", "forums", and "Foorumi" will become one, as "astrology", "astrologic", "astrological", "astro", etc.

Thank you so much again for this great implementation of a must-have functionality.
Cheers to all,
Shlomo Tommer
