My forum will be a visual effects forum, and in our field there are so many different disciplines, career stages, etc. I think it would be cool if I could allow my users to write what they are and have it show up next to their names when they post. Options could be things like “Enthusiast” or “VFX Supervisor”.
How would I go about setting something like that up? I’ve seen something similar done on Reddit, where certain subreddits will allow you to choose a flair that shows up next to your name when you post. I find that helpful because it provides more context to who is talking.
If you go this route you may also want to make sure that the groups page is really easy to find for those members. One way to do that is using the Custom Headers Links theme component and adding a link that goes to the Groups page.
