@tobiaseigen has a usecase with custom fields where he’s importing the name of an organisation, and a url, via sso, and wants to display it as a link with the name linking to the url. I can’t imagine user fields of this type - a url and a name - are a want unique to him.
It would seem sensible to me to add a new user field of the type
Link, which accepts a name and url, and displays the name linking to the url.
No custom user field currently has two input boxes (at least, not that I’m aware of), and so I’m not sure what the most eloquent solution would be for this. I wonder if it might be to make the
Link field type literally link other fields together. So, you’d have a form something like this:
There has been some similar discussion before:
However this only works with one supplying some sort of username, and a base url common to all of the values of the field (which we don’t have here)
However, the about me field doesn’t allow easy adding of links via sso
Would a PR be welcome?
