Version: UBB.threads 6.5.5

I'm trying to read a custom field which was created in reg'n settings. I've added these two lines to the myhome.tmpl:
  • $user[U_Username]
When I go to MyHome the first line returns gtho4, but the second line returns a blank.

I've checked that the data for custom-field extra3 exists in the same file (it's visible in showprofile) by running these two SQL commands. Both return the number 30176, which is the correct value for extra3 belonging to uid 539 (myself):
  • SELECT U_Extra3 FROM w3t_Users WHERE U_Number='539'
    SELECT U_Extra3 FROM w3t_Users WHERE U_Username='gtho4'
What am I doing wrong .. is it do-able? I think I've done everything correctly, but have nothing more than a rudimentary knowledge of what's going on / what I'm doing, lol

It looks correct to me.

Make sure you're requesting the U_Extra3 field in the authentication routine on that particular script. Only certain fields are requested in each script. Just look for the authenticate() call in the script and you'll see the list of fields. If you don't see the field you need, just add it to the list.

ok, gotcha.
I've read a lot of threads in here over the last few days with references to the authenticate routine. I'll re-read them, and have a bash at it over the weekend. *fingers crossed*
thanks mate
