To display the user fields on the user card would be very useful for us. It saves some clicks and you keep focus on reading (instead of visiting the user’s page to see the field’s values). This would speed up our customer support and provides better usability.
Is there a plugin (no JS hack as mentioned above) for this yet? If not, I’d like to deal with this (already hacked it into my local discourse installation ).
@sam what do you think, should I make a plugin or should I contribute to the discourse core (I already signed the Contributor License Agreement)? I thought about adding two options similar to the two existing ones…
- public custom fields on user card
- staff user custom fields on user card
(open to improvements )
With this two extra options it would be possible to show only a subset of user fields on the user card (to keep it small and clean) while showing a more complete set of (possibly many) user fields on the user’s detail page.
What do you think?
