Make certain custom profile fields show in mini profile?

Is there a way to make only selected custom profile fields to display in the users mini-profile?

Do you mean the profile that shows to the right (sometimes the left :? ) of a post?

Assuming Prosilver or a derivative you might have a look in viewtopic.php

Make a copy of viewtopic.php and save it somewhere safe then open up viewtopic.php with a good text editor (NOT notepad!)

Find:

Code: Select all

$user_cache[$poster_id]
After that are all the fields for the profile. You can experiment by removing or comment out the bits you don't want. If you make a mistake you have the original to put back.

Yes.
Custom profile fields in the viewtopic profile.
Those are controlled by settings the "Display" flag in the profile field, and then setting the "Show on viewtopic" flag on the Load Settings page.
