I want to ask about Custom Profile Fields.

I have a default custom profile fields. It is fid1 (Location) field. And I use {$userfields['fid1']} to display this field value.

I fill a simple javascript code in the field via usercp:

Code:
<script type="text/javascript">
document.write("Example Scripts");
</script>

And the result is: Example Script.

So, I think {$userfields['fidx']} will render the script that filled in the custom user fields. It doesn't happen with {$profilefields}.

So, is it secure if we use {$userfields['fidx']} code in member profile page?

RE: [MyBB] About userfields
Don't know if script-tags are allowed in Custom Profile Fields ( can cause troubles? if someone fills in a bad script ), could be they're filtered out by MyBB, but its secure to use {$userfields['fidX']} in the memberprofile.

Thank you very much, LeX-. I'm very happy to hear that. Because when i try to use the other tag in the field, img tag, {$userfields['fidx']} show the images. The {$profilefields} will not render any script in the fields. This makes me worry if a member put a bad script there. But now, I don't worry anymore.
