Alternative Usage of a Profile Field
Hi guys, me again.
I want to give my users some personalization options for their profiles, so this is what I was thinking:
Upon registration there would be a non-required field where people can input a URL for an image, now what I’d like to do is use the value of that field within a style=”” attribute of an element, so I could attach it as a background image.
My questions would be:
* Is using profile fields the right way to do it?
* Can a non-required field (or rather field group) be hidden from the register screen? They are not required after all, so my guess is that this can be accomplished via CSS alone.
* Is there a way to check the value of the field? I’d like to allow only .jpg, .gif and .png files.
I guess the last two are considered â€œextravagantâ€ so I’d settle for a bare-bones solution (i.e. just enabling the option).
