User profiles in DJ-Classifieds

User profiles in DJ-Classifieds

We want to show you how to manage the user profile in DJ-Classifieds.

In our short article, you can learn how to make a profile, see how the registration process goes and check how the user's profile looks on the front page.

The administrator can create custom fields and add them to user profiles. We will also show you how.

User registration

If you do not have an account yet, please select "Don't have an account" option in the login box.

Now fill the registration form. Write your name, username, password and email address.

You will receive an activation link to your email box. After activation, you'll be able to login into your profile.

We have created an example profile (Brian Rodgers) for the fictive user.

Creating custom fields to user profile

Using DJ-Classifieds extension, you can create an unlimited number of fields assigned to the user profile.

The whole process you can see reading our tutorial.

We have added several custom fields for our user: address, website, phone number, and added a profile image.

Created fields will be visible when editing the completed profile in the user menu. The user can edit his profile and fill all areas defined by the administrator.

The profile view

Our user has three assigned ads as an example.

Below you can see a view of our ads. Let's click the marked one item.

Now you see the single item view. These ads belong to our user. As long as the user is logged in - he can edit or delete (red marked fields) his items.

On the right side, we see the information about the ad creator. Details like "Phone number" or "Address" can be enabled or disabled in DJ-Classifieds "extra fields".  Open the defined "field" and for "Show in advert view" choose "yes" or "no".


Click the user's name: Brian Rodgers. Now we see the full user's profile with all information and the list of his ads.
