I love this mod but haven't installed this yet purely because images are just way too small. Couldn't we make image slightly bigger and move them under if space is restricted?

When you added the new user profile field, did you add the option of Male & Female?

With regards to the ":" just remove it from the code (In bold-RED), below:

Nice little bit of code. Thanks. I'll be adding a couples choice to mine. Wondering if there's a way to add preset radio buttons instead of having the member write in their gender.

That is because you didn't select the "Single-Selection Menu".

Select the above mentioned, and you will see the box which you need to put the options into.


It is an easy enough mistake to make, and you aren't the only one.


Let me know how you get on.

The member don't "Type in their Gender". They select it from a "Drop Down" menu, from the options that you have entered.

I have also added a further TWO (2) Screenshots of my registration page and what your user will see. (Members will also see this in the Edit Profile too, if you have selected that option).

Thanks, yeah I chose Single-Selection menu now and followed the further instructions.
But I can't see the gender thingy in my postbit even I pasted the code you gave below the "joindate code".
It only appears in my profile.

I do not have the "Options" section available to me for some reason.

I figured out my problem.... I chose "Profile Field Type: Single Line Text Box" so of course I don't get the 'options' dialog box. But Ultimately I chose "Single-Selection Radio Buttons" (which answered my other question above) and I'm good to go.

Thanks for your work.
