Custom Profile Fields

This documentation applies to custom profile fields only, such as:

field_link
field_skype
field_yahoo

Installation

1. Download the field addon zip package from the Etano Downloads Repository and upload it to your "tmp/packages" folder, be sure NOT to unzip it, the package manger will handle that.
2. In your admin panel go to the Package Manager page. You should see the addon listed there with an "install" link next to it.
3. Click on install and follow the instructions if any.

Once installed they will appear in the list of modules installed on your site.

Setup

1. In the admin go to the Profile Fields page and in the "Add a new field" drop down list select the newly installed profile field type.

4. Optional: some of the fields might also have special settings. Go to the Features and Options page, if there is a category of settings for the newly installed field in there make sure you set it correctly. Save when you're done.
