Allows you to setup alternate profiles for the members to post as. idea spawned from "posting alias" by Eton and "choose rpg character" by Ross

by Wormopolis

*If you have customized your profile template, the alters might not show up anymore. add an element with class "profile_alter_list" for it to target where you want them display.

This is really cool and I was super excited when I found it-- but for my purposes it's almost useless if members can't add their own alters. I see theres an option for them to edit their alters, but it doesn't actually seem to work.

Love this plug-in, is there a limit to the number of Alters you can make?

I really like this option, it's great for people who are systems. However, is it possible to have an option to not call them "alters" and instead make that title editable? Please, I'd really appreciate it.

Posts count was needed to calculate post percentage. if you dont want it to show, just use a hidden span

Absolutely LOVE this plugin! By far, my favorite addition to the forum. Perfect for RPGs! :)

How do you make the alter

An amazing and must have addition to any RPG forum

So far so good, but there's room for improvement. I'd like for members to be able to make their own alters instead of me having to register them one by one. If this could be a feature that the admin could choose to have that would be awesome. Also, there's an add member button even when the member is already chosen, this gave me the idea multiple members could share the same alter. I was very disappointed to find out this wasn't a feature, because my forum has four mascots, and I wanted for all the mods to be able to post with those mascots. If that could be a feature then this would be a five star plugin :)

I'd give the plugin a 5-star rating when it's working, but as of late, it has been really unreliable, and stopped working randomly. If they managed to make it more reliable and dependable, I'd give them a 5-star without thought.

Great idea, easy to configure. Didn't work at all, though it has worked for me on forums in the past :/ Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if there's a compatibility error with other plugins, but I'm not impressed at the moment.

One of my favorite plugins. It is very useful for a role playing board, but I can see many other uses for it as well, particularly for admin.

Endless uses for an RPG

It works on forums but when viewed and used on phones it seems to work backwards. Instead of showing the alt it shows the user who used it instead.

My members have multiple characters. I have four characters: Albus, Blaise, Septimus, and Narcissa. It keeps posting either as my username or as Septimus. I am clicking the right character in my dropbox and everything. What's wrong?

For some reason, it's started expanding the Alters pictures so that it isn't centered (even if you size it to match the avatar size). But apart from that, the glitches are very minor (like seeing the original mini-profile for a bit, in the post). It works very well and can be used for many things. (Currently using it to make the community guidelines appear more professional.)

Great! Perfect for Roleplays.

An awesome plugin made by a guy who will seemingly stop at nothing to give people all the features they want. The only problem I've had is the update issue with losing UI data (the Character list particularly), which I understand is not Wormo's fault (and moreover is going to be fixed), so all that being said, he deserves all 5 of these stars.

We love it and we are adding it to our two other rp boards. It would wonderful though if we could have multiple characters be able to use an alter.

Here's another plugin I just love. It's given the members of my site a new feature to have fun with. Oh and it's so easy too. Thanks Wormo! It's so cool!

This plugin is great. I am making a lot of use of it. The aforementioned problem with 'finding' a sites usernames is an ongoing error with proboard's search server, not this plugin.

I really like this plugin. Altrough I think it would be nice if the members can put the thing togheter themself. So I don't have to do all the things. I also have a magic rpg and it would be nice if i could put other things in it, like magic and breed and stuff. But I really LOVE the idea and the plugin:) Only one question, is it true I can't put a picture in the signature, or i'm doing something stupid x3
