User location tag?
« on: February 23, 2013, 04:23:53 PM »
<-------------------- Like this guy did. 


Not sure about everyone else, but other forums I belong to have that little feature.  Never realized how much I glance at that to see where the poster is from until it's not there.  I filled out the Custom Title with mine, but would like to see something of the nature for all users.  Just my $.02
I've always had gas...  And now a bunch of kettles because of this place.  Thanks!

Like the one that says Northern VA above your avatar?

Ahh... I see (Sorry, wine is kicking in - probably should not post.) Yes, some choose not to provide their location. <shrug>
kettles, smokers...

It's not a bad idea.....but it's a personal choice deal.....................making these folks do it would be like herding jello thru quicksand...... ::)

There......I fixeded mine.....but  now I'm jealous 'cause I can't figure out how to get it to display above the avatar like yours....................

Mine does not show up either above or below my avatar. I can see it if I click on my name to see my profile. Must be another setting somewhere.

Edit: I put my location in the "Personal Text" field and it now shows up below my avatar.

Put it in the box called "custom title" in the modify profile area. You can add more text below like you already did.

I realize it's a personal choice and some will opt to not fill it in.  Not looking for an exact address, just a region like you guys have already done.  If you live near Seattle, just PNW would work.  Hell, I don't even know who is in the US verses down under.    :o

For those looking to add that little nugget of information...

Click on Profile > Modify Profile > Forum Profile

Personal Text will show up below the avatar & below your post count
Location doesn't show up except in your profile  Now shows up :D
Custom Title shows up above the avatar/below your user name.  (mine says Northern VA Chad B)

Great idea, thanks bman.

I added some code to output the location under the avatar. :)

Ok, mines sorted
I have a question . Why are some of the members names in different colors at the bottom of the page where it says whose logged on?
I'm not bothered, its not like I have color envy or anything I just wondered
I'm only 2 or 3 kettles away from being that creepy guy down the street with all the Webers

Well there you go, I didn't know that about the colors. I know if you've buddie'd someone they show up bold.
