    We have added a number of Profile fields for our site. We wanted to add a few of these to the member list template. We have one field called Position and one called Industry.

    I tried to add them to the template but AS does not seem to recognize the fields. I mirrored the syntax of some of the other fields. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Hi Dennis,

    Do you mean that AS doesn't include these fields in the registration process? If so, take a look at the following topic: http://www.activemodules.com/Commun...fault.aspx

    If not, pleae explain a bit in more detail where AS doesn't recogineze your fields.
    Regards,

    Marc,

    Different Issue. Let me see if I can be more precise.

    We set up a number of profile properties in the DNN "User Accounts|Manage Profile Properties" screen. Active Social "Profile" picks up all of these fields perfectly, no issues there.

    On the Active Social Member List Template the canned template gives us: Picture, UserURL, Online Status, # of Friends, send message, etc.

    We have added City and state to the template so as folks scroll through the members they can easily see their location - that works perfect using AS:PROFILE:CITY etc. in the template.

    When I try the same thing for other profile fields, ex. AS:PROFILE:POSITION - the template does not recognize the variable and populate the template. It doesn't seem like it has access to the data.

    Thanks for the reply Marc

    Dennis,
    Make sure you have the profile visibility settings configured properly for the additional fields in the members section of the Active Social control panel.

    Will,

    Thanks for your reply.

    The profile visibility settings for all of my fields in the control panel are set to "User Preference". I updated the 2 fields that I wanted included on the member list to "Everyone" and it did not alter the result. The fields are still not displayed on the member list.

    In one of the areas in Active Social the fields are case sensitive. Here are a few other options to try...

    [AS:PROFILE:Position]

    Or

    [DNN:PROFILE:Position]

    if I add a custom field like http://www.activemodules.com/active...ve-social/ the favorite drink ... and user doesn't fill it in right away, but later notices on profile ... how do we add the drop down permissions like everyone, friends, etc. to that field? I know you can preset it on profile properties but how do we give user choice?

    On the members page of the control panel, set the visibility of the profile property to User Preference.
