Customizing the Profiles Person Card Part I

View Comments
As promised!  I've created instructions on how to change the Profiles person card.  You all know how the out-of-the-box Profiles person card looks:

The instructions show you how to do two things:
  • Add the user's cell phone number
  • Change email address from internet address to Notes address

There are three basic steps that you need to do:
  1. Ensure/Configure Profiles retrieves the attribute you want to display from the database
  2. Prepare the client side object that JavaScript will use to hold profile values
  3. Use JavaScript to dynamically render the person card

Sounds complicated?  It's really not that bad.  At most, you'll need to change 3 files. 

Let me know if you have any questions!

NOTE:  The document is very technical.  It'll most likely only be understood by those of you with experience in HTML / JSP and SQL development.
