Would it be possible to have another option on where to show the custom fields on the event detail page? Have a box displayed in the same style as the other boxes with all the custom fields neatly inside.
Also could you give the option to assign a Glyphicons to each custom field? Make it blend with the rest of the page.
Do you think this wold be possible to have another box containing all the custom fields so it matches the information and organizer boxes style? Think it would make the custom fields look part of the event page... thanks Pete
In answer to your question, I think the individual custom fields should go into this new box if you select the position for a field. That way you can mix it up if you choose. I guess when you select the position for this new box, that is when the box itself is shown - if no custom fields for this new position are selected, then the box is hidden. Please drop me an email with costs, so I can make a decision on whether to speed this option up.
Also, there is something else I'm thinking of for some custom work. At this stage need to know if possible and then can talk about the finer detail and costs. Would like the Organiser area of Matukio to link with the Joomla users table more. I'm starting to capture a variety of custom fields for my users that contain more information about them (we are a cycling site, so capture things like fitness, age range, average distances, etc...) all of this is captured during registration or when a user updates their profile. I use another extension to capture this - but all that does (from what I can see) is store the additional entries into another table and links back to users via the user ID. I'm looking to bring all the information out into Matukio, so when someone clicks on the link to see all about the Organiser, it shows this information. I guess you already have a link to the Joomla users table as you use the email address, so in my simple mind it sounds really simple! Please let me know what you think - maybe drop me an email?
What extension are you using? Joomla comes with the user profile fields. The data is stored in the #__user_profile table. You have user_id, key, value.
We have the option to preaalocate the booking fields with data - we take the data from the #__user_profile table. We could do something similar for the organisers as well. We'll have to find out what exactly your use case is.
Hi Daniel - Sorry late reply, been away for a few days.
to extend the user profile and have custom additional fields in my user's profiles. It also gives me social logins too. From what I can see it works by storing all the additional field data in a separate table and links the user via the id field. Rather than you burning time now looking at this, let me put something detailed together for exactly what I need and forward that over. You can then let me know if what I want is technically possible and how much custom code time is required, costs, supportable going forward, etc..
What about the custom fields box custom work, is that one going to be possible?
