: 1) plugin for wildcard field
: does anything like this already exist?
: i would like to require my board users to choose 'Buyer' or
: 'Supplier' when they register then show a corresponding CSS
: formatted letter (B or S) or image file next to their info in
: the message index and header of the post.
No, such a thing doesn't exist.
More on profiles see below.
: 2) question about registration
: this is more curiousity than a question.
: is there an option to current registration?
: the current method is
: 'unique' - where the user clicks My Profile and enters username,
: but not password - why not just have a link for profile and one
: for register that goes directly to the register form?
Actually the profile thing basically is what's inherited from Darryl's old WebBBS. Some security fixes and code maintenance. The current way of "My Profile" is an improvement to the old way. The code and logic is a bit complex but working well .... and secure.
Problem is one must protect profile information of persons who already have registered. On the other hand it's required these days to protect registration forms one way or the other to prevent profile spam.
The sole fact that this software utilizes a different way then the majority of software for registration keeps off a lot of bots.
I'm still planning on a rewrite of the entire profile code. Can't get to this because there is always some other major topic coming from nowhere and jumping ahead of the profile thing on my ToDo list. Basically because profiles are in a working condition and stable.
Hope this helps for understanding.
For your problem of "classifying" registered users unfortunately there is no reasonable solution. Such a classification can't be handled without severe changes to the codebase. Not doable with a plugin. But I've added the idea of user classification on the ToDo list for profiles. Whenever that will be touched.
Isn't everybody a buyer and seller at the same time. One way or the other?
For discussions it might be interesting what a person is.
If it's for a classified board, then simply set up two: one for things saught and one for things sold.
There might be a workaround for your request. But that certainly isn't trivial but probably could be done with some code in custom.pl.
Idea is to use the Avatar feature as a workaround.
One could probably customize the registration form to display radio buttons for Buyer and Seller. Then on submission automatically create an avatar file either for Buyer or for Seller.
This avatar image then would be displayed on message display pages. Not on index pages.
Not sure if such a thing would do as a workaround. Please judge yourself.
