It is possible to add custom information for each individual contact in Trombinoscope Contacts Pro, in addition to the information fields you can already show.

To achieve this, we can take advantage of 3 events that are available in the extension.

First, we need to be able to add the field type in the list of fields available for output and second, we need to set how the output will present itself for each contact.

With this tutorial, you will be able to add:

  • a field type that outputs a link,
  • a field type that outputs addresses on one line only,
  • a field type that outputs a list of custom fields values of Text type.

No matter the setup, the output does not look anything like any of the demos or screenshots that the user has seen...

Feelings of disappointment occur (it should work from the start, right?). What is really happening?

There is no contact menu item (or contact view) in Joomla! out-of-the-box allowing the creation and edition of  contacts in the front end of a site. But there is a way for registered users to create their own contact entry and edit it when you have Trombinoscope Contacts Pro.
