I know all I have to do is add 'user_icq' to userInfoInPosts array in setup_options.php .. and then for it to display I would add {$userInfo_user_icq[$poster_id]} .. but I want to do display something else then just the name.. but since the template is a .html file I'm not sure how.

something like this in php..

<?php if ({$userInfo_user_icq[$poster_id]} != "") { echo "test"; } ?>

so if they didn't enter anything for that field it wouldn't display "test" .. but if the field isn't null it would display it.

(i'm not positive if that's the right php code or not, but you get the idea.)

how would I do something like this?

If it is null then you have nothing to worry about you just need to create the parse.

function parseUserInfo_user_icq($icq){

return '<span class=txtSm>'.$icq.'</span>';


then add the following to the template where you want it to be displayed

added it there, but it's still not displaying on main_posts_cell.html

I tried both: {$icq} & {$icq[$poster_id]}

I see about three references to including registration date, number of posts, etc in this forum, however, I have tried everything possible, and seem to be running to displaying them.

I am trying to include the avatar and number of posts. I am getting either number of posts, OR I get the avatar, but not at the same time.

Here is what I have in the setup options.


This displays the posts, but removes the Avatar. If I add the // to the num_posts line, then I get the avatar back.

Here is what i am using in the main_post_cell.html:

Avatar: {$userInfo_user_custom1[$poster_id]}
Posts: {$userInfo_num_posts[$poster_id]}

Also, I have two other questions:

1. What is the [1] (....$dbUserSheme['username'][1]); ) suppose to be?
2. If I decide to use regdate, how would I use for the setup_options and the template?

You need to define

$userInfoInPosts=array('user_custom1',$dbUserSheme['username'][1], array('num_posts',$dbUserSheme['username'][1]);

You're adding the stuff for main_post_cell.html correctly.

$dbUserSheme['username'][1] equals to users table's "username" field name. This setting is defined above in the same file.

For the regdate, you need to add to $userInfoInPosts a value 'user_regdate'. Then paste in main_posts_cell.html a variable {$userInfo_user_regdate[$poster_id]}
