We have a custom user field for member ID that we would like to have show next to the member’s username on a post on our Discourse-hosted site. There isn’t a setting for this, is there an existing theme component to do this?
i have this for user cards and profile. can probably use a plugin-in api to get it into posts.
I haven’t figured out exactly what user cards are yet. How are they different from the user’s public profile?
click/ tap one of our avatars in this topic to get the user card. click/ tap the avatar on the user card to get our profiles
let me know if you want help configuring the custom user field
for anyone who needs to do this, here’s how i do it on my site:
user preferences, profile tab:
how it appears on user card and profile:
I figured out the custom user fields, populating them from our member database is a separate matter, the Discourse transition team was asked to include this in our data migration.
Eventually we hope to use a single-sign-on from our Drupal-based website to get to Discourse, but the module to do that doesn’t appear to have anyone actively supporting it and I don’t know if it even works.
here’s how to do this part:
Thanks, this should give me a good starting point.
Will this being a Discourse-hosted site impact our ability to write a custom theme component, since that seems to be the missing link? (Having the ability to display a custom data field on a post seems like something that should be a setting.)
