Profile Plugin For Vanilla 2.0.14?

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I need a plugin for Vanilla 2.0.14 that allows users to edit their profiles with a custom blob of text.

I searched the addons here and found 2 of them. Unfortunately both had fatal errors.

    You just want users to be able to write anything and have it appear on their profile somewhere?

    There are many ways to accomplish this with a plugin. A great place to start is with the "Example" plugin, which is a well-commented plugin showing how you can add things to pages, and generally how you can hook into the application:

    Up next you'd need to decide where you want the text to appear and how you want the text to be edited. Then you just hook into the application to write out the html for your text and editing form. When you save the form, you can place the text into the user's "Attributes" field, which is a serialized array of values.

    Again, it may help to look at what others have done with their plugins. For example, the "Signatures" plugin adds a form to the user profile page that saves to the user table:

    I really could use this plugin, something like WP Cimy User Extra Fields. Unfortenately I am not that kind of a developer to custom code this in Vanilla.

    Will hook on my network at Digital Point Forums for developers willing to build this. If I succeed I will share it with you.
