Creating custom fields to user profile
Using DJ-Classifieds extension, you can create an unlimited number of fields assigned to the user profile.
The whole process you can see reading our tutorial.
We have added several custom fields for our user: address, website, phone number, and added a profile image.
Created fields will be visible when editing the completed profile in the user menu. The user can edit his profile and fill all areas defined by the administrator.
Our user has three assigned ads as an example.
Below you can see a view of our ads. Let's click the marked one item
Now you see the single item view. These ads belong to our user. As long as the user is logged in - he can edit or delete (red marked fields) his items.
On the right side, we see the information about the ad creator. Details like "Phone number" or "Address" can be enabled or disabled in DJ-Classifieds "extra fields". Open the defined "field" and for "Show in advert view" choose "yes" or "no".
Click the user's name: Brian Rodgers. Now we see the full user's profile with all information and the list of his ads.
