UKBL ~ FaceBook profile link on Postbit ~ Clickable !!


Member on Facebook? Show other members that you have a Facebook presance by adding a facebook Icon to your postbit" ;)

This is a cool hack which will let your members add a facebook Icon to their Postbit template, They need to add their facebook Profile user ID in their user CPfor this to show, If they don't enter one, then the badge don't show :D
How to install.

Its really easy to do, as always, so if your sitting comfortably, lets begin ;)

Now we need to create a User Custome field, so.....

AdminCP and add a custom field > User Profile fields > Add New User Profile Field

Title = Facebook user ID

Description = Enter the Number ID from your Facebook User Profile

Default Value = Leave empty

Max length of allowed user input = 12

Display Size = 10

Display Order = 10 or 15

Field Required = No as default

Field Editable by User = Yes in case member wants to delete, Later

Private Field = No

Field Searchable on Members List = No

Show on Members List = Yes

Regular Expression = leave empty

Save the field ;)

Once you've saved you can see what the field number is, So lets say its Field11 for example, Remember this as will need it for your Postbit Edits :up:

Thats the first bit done, now Part Two :rolleyes:

Go to the template you are using in Styles & Templates/Style Manager, and select Edit templates.

Go to "postbit templates" and select the template you are using, either postbit or postbit_legacy.

Find the following


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Directly above it add


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace the RED Field attribute for your own

now when members sign up their facebook badge and enter their profile user ID into the "Enter the Number ID from your Facebook User Profile" section in their UserCP, The Badge will automatically appear in their Postbit :eek:

Don't forget to change the usergroup condition with the number of the usergroups that you want to be able to view this


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That means that guests and banned users will not be able to view members facebook profile urls ;)

Members who do not add a user id will not be shown anything.

Next, Upload the facebook icon to your forums/images/misc folder and add the full url to the part in the code which shows the image.

if you are just seeing a red cross on your postbit, then its because your image url is not right ;)

Oh Forgot to say, Badge is fully clickable so members can click directly to facebook ;)


Hope you enjoyed this new hack, and thanks to DobieGillis© for the idea ;)

Thanks again everyone :D

You can by all means do one for myspace, bebo and the such, simply by replacing the destination url and adding the fieldX attribute where the member id belongs.

Don't forget to add the image url too ;)

Have fun

:D

by looking at your picture you'll want to move it down a bit more, Just add it down the code a bit further in the postbit template, not sure without looking at your postbit, but just move it down below the Yahoo icon, you'll see the code for it, just make sure its on a new line and not in the middle of a line of code ;)

below is what a normal profile page looks like in facebook, with the user id Colored red, thats the Url of the page when your logged onto your facebook profile.

This is what we have in the code, with the user number replaced with the custom profile file number, in red also


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

The thing that makes this show up or not in the postbit, is the custom user field in the edit options of the users CP

When they enter there user number from their facebook profile in this profile field the code is complete, without this number the facebook logo is not shown. ;)
