    I have added a few more fields to the User account information. these include:

    ISP
    Speed of Connection
    Make of ADSL modem
    Make of Cablemodem
    Router Model
    Current Firmware

    please update your user account details as needed.

    Toxic, these new fields don't seem to be visible in the user's Profile.

    I was actually referring to the new info not visible to other users under my public profile (e.g., I can't see your new info), so is there an actual use to the new info other than for my own private viewing? I don't think I'm geriatric enough to have to remind myself of my connection info :lol:

    Another thing. Can you make the character limit of the fields longer? I seem to be able to enter only up to 8 characters in the new fields.

    new character fields are 25 characters long.

    as to viewable, i can view anyones profile even when not logged in. are you sure you are doing this from the main webapge and not the forums? there IS a difference

    goto main page, click on a username listed in the "User Information" (block right hand side)

    you should be able to view the new field with there account details in there.

    Ahh.... I didn't know there was a difference between the main webpage's user or account profile and the forum's user profile .... is there a reason why that is the case? In the past I noticed I could update my info in one but not the other and always thought that was a bug.

    Why not make the new info available in the forum's user profile also?

    lol easy said than done. phpbb works slightly different to phpnuke and that is why phpnuke has a ported phpbb version.

    i'm not gonna mess to much with DB's etc as i dont want to move away too much from the original PNP 7.6
