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).

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.

How its not working? what is the error?

us Mary Greg Replied 4 years ago

It's very strange. Why mention the 5.0 option if it not work?

us Mary Greg Replied 4 years ago

It is not available in version 5.0 can you explain reason?

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 4 years ago

just verified: this archive is working correctly with ossn 5.2

Unfortunately the component uploader comes with only 1 general error message for different possible errors and it's likely that your issue was caused by something else (e.g. archive is larger than allowed upload filesize)
So please follow the instructions (case B) on

I am trying to upload this component and its not installing. It's asking me to make sure this is a valid component... My OSSN Version is 5.1 and i have text support component installed...Please let me know how i can fix this.

Please add Public in the opt-in option

German Michael Zülsdorff Replied 5 years ago

Yes, and that's absolutely correct.
You can't enable About User as long as the required Textarea Support component is missing.
