Custom profile field changes
« on February 15th, 2013, 02:37 AM »
I said I was going to do something with it, didn't I?

Here's where I'm up to right now. Mostly aesthetic changes here, combined with adding the ability to reorder fields.

I love the UI cues there, it's something we did in SimpleDesk and it is something I always liked - having something that is more than a textual indication of what you're doing. I may yet add some of the other things we did in SimpleDesk (on top of text fields, we added specific fields for integers and floating point numbers, as well as a multi-select, though that introduced its own issues)

Well, reordering is implemented, and the order is respected everywhere (profile, registration, memberlist) and being drag 'n' drop is just silky smooth. I'm so glad I implemented it the first time because it's encouraging me to use it elsewhere.

There's a few smaller subtler changes here - firstly, no pagination. I can't believe any forum would actually *have* more than 25 custom fields through this anyway, so I didn't see the point in fussing with pagination.

Secondly, I could actually use the extra space - as I mentioned in the changelog, there's no reason why I couldn't put stuff like an icon or indicator of 'this is on the memberlist' or 'this is on registration'. I did take the opportunity to trim some of the language strings on it, though, heh.

It's funny you should say that :whistle:

You're also not the only person to have commented upon it.
