It would be great if users would be allowed to enter values into "enhanced custom fields" on the posting form. Have you ever considered it? Thank you!

I apologize, I already asked. But wouldn't it be helpful to Phorum users to classify the nature of their posts in order to avoid a cluster of subforums? All it would need would be an extension of your module allowing users to edit custom fields during posting, as well. Would you rather want me to modify the "Resolved" module? I appreciate your thoughts and ideas how to proceed. Thank you!

This module targets custom profile fields, which are fields that are linked to the user info. You are requesting for fields that are linked to the messages. That is something completely different. Furthermore, for what you want, structural changes have to be made to the Phorum system, because otherwise your ideas cannot be implemented. This really is not the route to follow for implementing your requirements. Modifying the "resolved" module will not solve the issue as well.

Is is very, very easy to add extra information to messages.
It is very, very hard to be able to use that information as tagging to classify and order messages in the interface.

Thanks for your quick response. I agree you have a valid point in terms of separation among user info and post info. Contrary to your opinion I believe that the modification of the "Resolved" module will most likely address my issue. I still think it might be an interesting feature to other Phorum hosts, as well. Thank you!

A performance question: Would it make sense if a drop-down menu could avoid creating i.e. 25 subforums?

Good luck with modifying the module. Apparently I don't have correctly in mind what goal you are after. If you just want to add some data to posts, then it should not be a problem. The problem starts when you want to do selections based on that data.

I am not sure what performance issue you are talking about with regards to the drop down menu. If you want to discuss that futhher, then please do so in a new thread in the development forum instead of using this module's thread.

I am working on an update for this module which will better display the custom profile fields according to separate templates. This will address the issue you are having. Look for a release hopefully this weekend.

Probably a dumb question...
I installed the script, and I set up two custom fields.
They show up correctly at the user's profile, including the stuff the user filled in.
The problem is in the topics (under the avatar): only the name of the custom fields is visible, not the info the user filled in.
I added this code to read.tpl:
{hook "ecp_tpl_cc_start"}
I hope anyone can tell my what I'm doing wrong...
Thanks in advance!

This module is not setup to do what you want with the "ecp_tpl_cc_start" hook or any other hook. What you will want to do is add the field directly to the template. Here is an exmple for the Emerald template:
<div class="message-author icon-user">
  {IF MESSAGES->URL->PROFILE}<a href="{MESSAGES->URL->PROFILE}">{/IF}{MESSAGES->author}{IF MESSAGES->URL->PROFILE}</a>{/IF}
  {IF MESSAGES->URL->PM}<small>[ <a href="{MESSAGES->URL->PM}">{LANG->PrivateReply}</a> ]</small>{/IF}
  {IF MESSAGES->user->CustomProfileFieldFavoriteColor}<br>{MESSAGES->user->CustomProfileFieldFavoriteColor}{/IF}
</div>
This would add whatever color the user entered as their favorite directly below the user's name, but only if they did fill in that field. Let me know if you have any further questions on this.
