Hi guys,

This was initially a template modification i created, i decided to make things much easier for people to compile it all into this product,

What is Social Networking in Postbit & Profile:

Well the name pretty much gives it away! This mod will add social networking icons for 10 social websites into both the vertical and horizontal postbit and now in a users profile with features like:
  • Option to turn Modification on/off.
  • Option to enable icons with or without a block.
  • Option to turn profile block on/off.
  • Option on location of profile block.
  • 2x Icon sets 16x16 and 24x24.
  • Mouseover and Mouseout animation.
  • etc.
-INSTALLATION-

-STEP 1-
Goto admincp -> User Profile Fields -> Add new User Profile Field and add the following fields:

Profile Field Type - Single-Line Text Box
Title - Twitter
Description - Add a link to your Twitter profile.
Field Searchable on Members List - NO
Show on Members List - NO

Field Searchable on Members List - NO

Profile Field Type - Single-Line Text Box

Once you have created the profiled fields, take a note of the field numbers.

Note: If you do not want to use all of these websites then just add the fields of the websites that you do want to use.

-STEP 2-

Download the attached zip file, extract the files, open the UPLOAD folder and choose which icon set you wish to use, the options are 16x16 or 24x24 icons. Once you have decided, FTP the images folder to the root of your forums.

-Step 3-
Goto admincp -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product and upload the install file (product-socialpostbit.xml).

-Step 4-

Goto admincp -> Options -> [Boydy]Social Networking in Postbit. Now you must decide how you want to configure the mod, you can see examples of with/without block in the screenshots below. Next all you need to do is input all of the relevant profile field numbers and that's it! If you do not wish to use some of the websites included just leave the setting blank or set to 0.

And that's it! Screenshots below of the icon sets, admincp settings and the mod itself. Credit for the icons goes to sawb.What's new in version 1.0.2:
  • Social networking block now added to profile.
  • Option to enable/disable profile block.
  • Option on location of profile block. (TOP, MIDDLE, BOTTOM)
  • Some minor code and template changes from original release.
  • Added version checking to the mod.
  • etc.
What's new in version 1.0.3:
  • Fixed bug with postbit setting.
  • Added new setting for enabling/disabling the postbit only.
  • etc.
I do have some other idea's on how to further extend this modification which you'll see in a future update. If you are upgrading please remember to ALLOW OVERWRITE.

If you install this and For future updates and support please remember to mark as installed!

Would it be possible that each member would only have to input their username to each social network as apposed to the whole URL?
We are already using fields that each member inputs this info into now. It would be confusing for them to do both.

The reason i didn't do that as it can cause problems with Facebook amongst others. Anyway if that is the way you want to do it download the product attached to this post, i've modified it for you.

I dont know if I did this wrong but, I created the profile field, then put in my facebook url "jasonpack" and when I click the icon in my postbit, it goes to some non-existent location on my site.

Pacman - You need to put in your facebook URL not username, if you want to use usernames then download the product from post #32

Also, please remember to mark as installed if you want support in future

Cheers!

beautiful!.... Thanks for that. I wanted to make sure It worked for me before I clicked "install" I didn't know if it reflected anything poorly if you click uninstall.

Thanks Again,
-jason

EDIT: Just tried the youtube icon, same sort of error

EDIT 2: It is just an mistake in the url inside the .xml file,
It seems you left the "http://" out of every url but facebook, google+, and myspace.. I add it in front of the youtube url and it works great.

I corrected it, This should work. Probably want to test it on your copy though.

-thanks again

Nice product. Thanks. I was wondering whether it's location within the postbit could be moved? I have reputation points displayed, followed by instant message icons below the social networking logos and it doesn't look as good as I would like. I would like it to appear after the rep points if possible or the very bottom. Any clues to how this could be done please? Also can you tell me which template to edit for the profile block, as I'd like the logos all on one line there too. I only use 5 with 16x16 images, so it looks quite neat. Cheers for any help you can offer.

Could you post your postbit template please mate as i'm assuming it has been modified, as the plugins use template hooks, it would depend on your template layout.

With regards to the templates to remove the line break it is postbit_social, find and remove <br />

Ok, could you replace all of that code with this:

Should fix the problem and keep your postbit the same mate, although as it is untested, let me know if there are any other problems...
