    small tweak for the forum module Link to this post


    When trying to understand how to make custom members, I've discovered this in the code of the forum module...

    --- line 72 > 87 of ForumRole.php ---
       function FirstNamePublic() {
          return $this->owner->FirstNamePublic || Permission::check('ADMIN');
       function SurnamePublic() {
          return $this->owner->SurnamePublic || Permission::check('ADMIN');
       function OccupationPublic() {
          return $this->owner->OccupationPublic || Permission::check('ADMIN');

    Well, it seems to me that it would be much simpler if we simply had :

       function isPublic($field) {
          $prop = $field.'Public' ;
          return $this->owner->$prop || Permission::check('ADMIN') ;

    and changing in the template "ForumMemberProfile_Show" any <% if Control 'Tag'Public %> occurrence by <% if Control isPublic(Tag) %>

    by doing this, it gets easier to extend if it needs to have more custom fields.
