    Unfortunately the demo site link is down at the moment, but yes you can have multiple groups of fields displaying as dropdowns.
     
    As for placement, the location is fixed, I would have to look in to it, to see how difficult it would be to move. I believe it would require modification of the hook itself.

    I'm not 100% sure exactly how you are trying to do it, but if you just want your users to supply a URL then in the custom profile field settings do something like this:
     
    Field Type: Text Input
    Topic View Format:
    <a href="{content}" title="{title}">{title}</a>  
    You will need to make sure that the hook setting of Wrap topic fields in anchor html tags?  is disabled, or you will get broken html due to the use of anchor tags in the topic view format.

    Get people to paste the url to the image into the field, e.g. http://www.speedtest.net/result/xxxxxxxxxx.png
    Then in the custom profile field settings do something like this:
     
    Field Type: Text Input
    Topic View Format:
    <img alt="{title}" src="{content}" />

    HTML will not be allowed in the text input field.
     
    Users can paste a URL there though and you can configure the field output in the ACP to make it a nice link.

    How are you trying to add links?
     
    The dropdown is designed to add custom profile fields, which are unique to each member. If you want the same link in everyone's dropdown, you are better off adding it via the template system.

    What version of IPB are you using?
  7. alexp999 added a post in a topic: Post Edit History - REALLY NEED THIS   

    Any news if this is being implemented for IPB 4.0?

    Can you post a screenshot of where you mean?

    This has been fixed in the most recent version iirc.
  10. alexp999 added a post in a topic: Website with multiple forums   

    You can also set a different skin per forum, so for each category have a different skin to make them each look/feel unique.

    Have you tried the fix in my earlier post?

    The google plus one button has been integrated into the share buttons as standard on IPB 3.2.x and newer so this hook should not be needed.

    File Name : (tng33) Improved Anti Cache Hash
    File Submitter : alexp999
    File Submitted : 08 Aug 2012
    File Category : Performance
    Supported Versions : IP.Board 3.3.x



    Exactly as the title says, this hook aims to improve upon the "Anti-Cache Hash" which IP.Board now has to try and stop web browsers caching old CSS and javascript files.

    IP.Board's default implementation will only ever realistically change the hash when upgrading to a new version of IP.Board. This is not ideal, especially when you make changes to your skins as the changes will not be reflected without everyone who visits your site, first clearing their browser cache.

    What this very lightweight and simple hook does, is replace all instances of the hash with another one (based on the original hash), but it will change based on the timestamp of when the skin the user is viewing was last updated.

    You may find you need to re-cache the skin after editing it, to force the timestamp to update if you do not see your CSS changes straight away.

    Basically, if you are having issues with CSS changes not making it to your users without them clearing their browser cache, give this hook a try and get behind our feedback thread for getting something like this added to a future IP.Board release:

    IPB 3.4.x
     
    I'm pleased to say this is not needed for IPB 3.4.x, as IPS have implemented this fix themselves :smile:

    The filtering options apply to all dropdowns. It is almost impossible for me to implement visibility options for individual groups as I have no idea how many you have.
  15. alexp999 added a post in a topic: (tng34) Custom Profile Field Dropdown   

    New version released, 1.4.0!
     
    Add option to exclude member groups from seeing dropdowns (3.4) Add option to exclude member groups from having their dropdown visible (3.4) Add option to exclude certain forums from displaying any dropdowns (3.4) Add option to exclude certain skins from displaying any dropdowns (3.4)  
    Thanks for everyone's feedback and feel free to keep it coming :)
