How can Users edit the "About" field?

edited August 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I noticed that User object has an About field, which, so far, is always empty. Is there a place where the Users can write something in such About field? Thanks.

    Sorry if it was unclear.

    Bottom line - I don't know what has become of it.

    Background
    It was insertable in vanilla 2.0.17 -but was buggy. it could have been removed.

    I do not know in vanilla 2.0.18 - I can't tell - as I have modified my version, so
    I implied a suggestion to you how to search and see if it is there.

    Apparently you knew about the table and column entry
    and the div that gets created it the about field is not empty.

    Beyond that I can't tell you.

    I don't see why you can't add an entry in your mods if it is really important to you.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    It was buggy and couldn't be clearable. It is the Status Div

    which is related to the column about in the user table.

    you could add it in 2.0.17. I don't have the original 2.0.18.4 - I've made alot of changes so I don't know if it is still in there as user input option,

    div class="Profile">

    <

    div class="User">

    t

    <

    div id="Status">

    click on the image to see the placement of about field.

    @peregrine Sorry, but I'm not sure I understand the answer. I see where the About field is, supposedly, rendered, but it's always empty. What I was wondering is if Users can actually populate it, somehow. Is it still in use?

    @peregrine Thanks for the clarification. I'm not saying that I can't add an entry form myself, I was checking if there was something already, so I wouldn't reinvent the wheel. :)

    Yes.

    If you click on your name
    then activity to the right of notifications.

    Notifications Activity Discussions Comments

    type words in the the share box.

    whatever you type goes into the About field in user table.

    (the clear doesn't clear it permanently.)
    to modify it, the user needs to retype what they want in the share.
