Tab menu for Extensions in User Profile

Post by Kamahl19 »

Many Extensions display content in user profile, which becomes really messy. I suggest to implement a Tabbed Menu ( for example jQuery UI Tabs http://jqueryui.com/tabs/ ) which would not be displayed on default user profile, but there would be an event to add new tab to user profile and display Ext's content there. If at least one tab was added by Ext, it would display also default tab with default user profile.

This would also allow better customization of user profile, which is really plane and old fashioned in comparison with modern software. We could easily extend it with many tabs such as:
Overview (default profile content), Galleries (personall galleries from NV Gallery), Comments (some kind of Wall Extension), Reputation (comments and rep from Rep Ext) etc..

By User Profile, do you mean the UCP? New tabs can already be added by Extensions just by creating new UCP Modules, just like you would do with the the ACP and ACP modules.

For example, in a migration file you'd do something like: array('module.add', array('ucp', '', 'UCP_GALLERY')),
Then you'd just create the appropriate 'ucp' folder in your extension with the normal ucp_module and ucp_info php files.

Check out nickvergessens NV Gallery extension on github, look at his migration file.
Has an irascible disposition.

+1 This would be great for mods like the Gallery, Arcade, and any other mod that Adda significant data, images, etc to the memberlist page (public profile)... Helps that page look neat and easy to navigate to the info you want to see.
