Expressionengine 2.5.5 and Discussion Forums 3.1.10

How do i pass public_custom_profile_fields in forum_thread.html section of the forum.

i have tried placing {custom_profile_fields} in forum_thread.html section but nothing gets displayed.

i am trying to display field name in forum section so that i can create a custom label to a specific member and display it in forum section.


  • Anyone please ? I have been doing some research and i have found the plugin here ellislab.com/forums/viewthread/58197 what i need to do, but i think its not compatible with EE 2+ as i cant seem to get it to work, its displays under plugins in EE but i cant do anything with it.

You can parse the Forum template through the normal template parsing engine, it has it caveats but it might get what you looking for.
