cant see custom fields
cant seem to find where i went wrong
i followed the tutorial the best i could

the field shows up when creating or editing a review, but never in the final review (showthread)

i know this isn't enough to troubleshoot, so let me know what info will be helpful, ie settings, screenshots, etc

Do you have the custom fields module active in your module set? Have you edited it to make sure that the custom fields you want to see are ticked?

not sure if it matters, but what im doing is creating a library, a collection of books with reviews, the custom field im adding is a Snipped URL, and it will contain an amazon associate link to purchase the book through

In the module set you edit the module by clicking on it or seelcting edit from the dop down box. Check that and make sure your custom profiel field is ticked in there too.

Now click where it says Custom Field and make sure your custom field is ticked in the next screen that will appear.

WHat version are you using? There was a bug in an earlier version that would not display custom text fields. If you save and edit is the value there?
