About User Download 7.3

German Michael Zülsdorff 9 years ago

About User

This component adds an additional profile subpage named About showing some basic member information like gender, age, etc. retrieved from the member's account data.

enter image description here

The accessibility of the About page depends on the mode which was chosen on the account settings page. The three available options are public (visible for everyone), friends only, or nobody (except of the account owner and administrators).

enter image description here

Note: About User can NOT be used in parallel with the Custom User Fields component. Whenever Custom User Fields gets enabled, About User will be disabled automatically.

Verified now: About User 4.1 is working flawlessly on Ossn 5.3 free.
Please provide more details regarding your configuration - see https://www.opensource-socialnetwork.org/wiki/view/1101/how-to-report-a-bug-error

And please note that About User will be disabled automatically in case you're running the Custom User Fields component (see Changes above)

There are chances that About User 4.1 is not compatible with Ossn 5.3
I put a read mark on top for it now.
Needs some time to investigate...

Hi.. I am new to this but learn really quick.
I need to know what has to be done to get the "About" to show on the page.
I have the component installed and enabled but the About is not showing on the page, profile or in the admin section.
Any help would be appreciated.

Because you need to install Text Area Support component first and enable that one first.
