@phenomlab OK thanks. I will install it later then.
Plugin or General Code
So I've had an interesting request made of me by the folks upstream ( yeah, lots on that plate already ) of me.
The forums will be supporting a game that has a master account and multiple "personality" profiles. They would like the account holders to post distinctly from a particular personality without it being a distinct login.
Since I'm expecting to build our own auth mod, this seems mostly doable up to the point I get to storing that information in the posts.
Is storing additional fields on a topic post something I can pull off with a plugin or am I going to have to do something lower level?
Yeah I would hook into the
action:topic.edithooks. At that point you would just make a simple call to add extra info to the topic hash (or preferably in a separate key unique to your plugin, ex.
BTW, hope I got what you're thinking right, I just re-read what you said and maybe you might have meant something completely different
