Location in User Profile

Postby arvidb » 29 Dec 2015, 03:30

I'd like to set my location in my user profile, so that others can see in which country and city I live, but I cannot find anywhere to set this.

Also I've noticed that benjamin has a location (visible next to his posts) but noone else seem to have a location set. Is there a problem with the forum config that prevents everyone but moderators to set their location?

Thanks for letting me know, I didn't know that it wasn't possible to change location by default.

This is because the default group for users is newly registered users, where their permissions are limited. New users are in this group until they have made 3 posts, and after that they get normal permissions. I just changed the configuration so that all users get normal permissions by default and removed everyone from the newly registered users group, so it should be possible to set the location now. I also added the location field to the registration form so that it is easier to spot it from the beginning.

No problem, and thanks for fixing it!
