Enable the My Profile sidebar box??

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Is there a way to get the My Profile box as seen on the sidebar of this forum? The default Vanilla install and theme doesnt seem to show this.

    That's a custom theme modification / plugin that Vanillaforums is using.

    Shame.. seems like a feature that most people would expect/want as part of the install if they see it on the demo here.

    Maybe with some logic you can figure out how they did it on this site :-)
    On your own site, when you go to your own profile, you'll see the same box, correct?
    Figure out which {code} they used for that box (it's in the template)
    Then try to put that {code} in your template.
    Does it get filled or does it stay empty.
    etc, etc.

    You can also just use CSS to move the menu in the header to the panel :) or, modify default.master.tpl.

    Check the Ultimate Theme Guide for more info on theming.

    This is actually a core module that you can turn on with a configuration option. Add this to your conf/config.php:
    $Configuration['Garden']['Modules']['ShowSignedInModule'] = TRUE;

    Thanks Mark, that's exactly what I was hoping to hear. Did I miss that in the documentation or are there other hidden modules we can enable via config?

    @Mark I did that but it didn't work any ideas
