It would be nice if one could be selected to be shown in the postbit.

Do you have the linkedin icon implemented?

No but if you give me a link to a user profile on linkedin I could draw up the code, it's not hard. You can PM the link if you'd like.

How do you prevent the added field information from showing up in the "Additional Information" section of the Member's profile?

Thanks, good work

Thanks, good work

Set the profile fields to private. You as an Admin still can see the private profile fields as far as I know.

OK, thanks, got that working, but in my case, I had to set "Can View Private Custom Fields" to 'No' in the Usergroup permission section.

The problem I have left now is, that they're not showing up in the Postbit. Any clues where I should look to get that working? As an Admin, everything looks good, but as general user, they're not showing up there. One note of interest, is if I set "Can View Private Custom Fields" to 'Yes', the postbit works for Admin & general users, but then it won't display in the Member Profile for general users! So I'm going around in circles!

Any ideas, appreciated!!

Many thanks.

Well come other options that I would check : Usergroup options > general permissions

Can view member info: Yes

Also maybe the profile field has to be NOT set to private.

And maybe in vBoptions > User profile options

vB code in non forum specific areas: Yes

Thanks for the ideas, but the only option that helps is the one I was asking about initially.

If I make the new profile field NOT private, it does indeed work in the Postbit as well, but then I'm left with that field name and user info shown in the Member Profile, under "Additional Information". So it's displaying there on it's own and also to the right of that, in the new "Social Networking" section. Which is not really good to look at

Is this not what everyone else is experiencing? Am I alone with this? I don't understand what could be different for me? Or is this the way it's supposed to display?

Thanks.
