    Thomas Heath! I did your suggestion and it worked!! The readme file didn't say to type it in the browser that's why I couldn't figure it out. But now, By typing the values in the Label and Value field will have the same effect. I don't know if anyone knew this one because noone suggested this. Thanks again Thomas Hopefully I won't bother this forum again.

    "Why can't you just use the Utility already in the Personal settings? Just tell your users to Put "Phone" in the label, and their number in the Value... Or you could edit the definitions to explain it above the input boxes. Or edit the way it looks so it already says "Phone", and they can just enter their # "

    a few posts above...

    Heh. I love this guy.

    @bentot: I think the extension allows you to make submitting the phone number mandatory. But that would be the only difference.
    Glad it worked out for you.

    gah!!!

    Yeah, the point of this extension is to unify all users personal details. It runs on the same thing as the label/value pairs, it just makes sure every user has them. If you pay some attention to how this app runs, and whats in your address bar at various times, you'll notice that when doing anything to the settings it uses settings.php?PostBackAction= whatever so I dont think it's too unrealistic for the author of this extension to suggest 'visit settings.php?PostBackAction=something' and expect people to know what he's talking about. 'Browse to' could just as easily mean he wanted the user to look for it through their filesystem too... But yeah, it's working.

    I'm thinking that a First and Last name extension class field manager should be a good thiing to add onto the the page where the information is shared and you can update it.

    I wasn't able to get it working either

    maybe I should ask what does this extension actually do ? should there be a link in the settings where we add things or does it work another way, so far I have yet to see any new link from the ext

    You need to FULLY install the extension, and configure it by editing some text within the default.php file. Is there a particular reason readme is no longer interpreted as something which you should read?
  • Options
    the readme doesn't say much other than how to install it nothing more :-)
  • Options
    did you edit the values in the default.php file? that is is the readme file and that is how you set up the predefined values for your users.

    hahahaha Now that I got it working... People started discussing it. Go figure :) The readme.txt threw me off. It wasn't clear enough for people with no programming background. Thomas Heath pointed me to the right direction :) There's a Canadian saying.. There are no good students.. only good teachers

    Someone tried to help me and said: did you try refreshing the page? it has to install itself on the first go. (Didn't work) A good answer would be.... "I think what you want to do is browse to the address http://[your vanilla address]/settings.php?PostBackAction=InstallPredefinedAttributes What I mean is: use your web browser. " This is also not the right suggestion: otherwise go into your conf/settings.php and look for this line: $Configuration['PredefinedAttributes_INSTALLED'] = 1; This would have been a good suggestion... After activating the extension. Go to your directory vanilla\extensions\PredefinedAttributes and edit default.php in that folder... Line 58 ... "Hidden" => true, (change it to false) Line 65 ... "Hidden" => true, (change it to false) Line 72 ... "Hidden" => true, (change it to false) Upload it back to the same directory vanilla\extensions\PredefinedAttributes and open a browser and browse to the address http://[your vanilla address]/settings.php?PostBackAction=InstallPredefinedAttributes. Done. Someone suggested: if it's not there, maybe add it yourself and try again. (I didn't know what to add here and where to add what) This is where I got confused.. But I don't mind because this is how we learn after all. Trial and error. :)

    You need to add stuff in the default.php file. As the readme suggests.
