Member Profile

The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

A member's profile gives the information of the member both on the forum, and in real life (if they choose to). In MyBB, the public profile of a member is separated into a few categories.



A profile

The first box on the profile gives details about the member's account on the forum.

On the left-hand side, the username, the user's user title, and the group image/stars. Below this, the following fields are displayed:

Registration Date 
The date the user registered on the forum.
Date of Birth 
If set in profile, the date of birth is displayed. However, if the user has only set to show their age in their profile, only the age will be displayed. If the user has set to show both date of birth and age in their profile, both will be displayed. If the user has their birthday set in their profile, but has opted to hide their date of birth and age from all users, this field will not be shown.
Local Time 
The current time for the user, based on the Time zone and Daylight Savings Time settings.
The current status of the user. If the user is online, you will also see what the user is currently doing, and the time they were doing it at.

If a user is away, you will see a message saying so, the reason they specified, the time the day the set their status as away, and the return.

On the right-hand side, the member's avatar is shown, full size, if the user has one set.

Additionally, if you are capable of issuing warnings to other users, you are able to warn the user by clicking on "Warn."
