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

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

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

Profile Field Type - Single-Line Text Box

Description - Add a link to your Bebo profile.
Field Searchable on Members List - NO
Show on Members List - NO

Profile Field Type - Single-Line Text Box

Field Searchable on Members List - NO
Show on Members List - NO

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

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

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!

I've had a lot of PM's requesting my Paypal to donate so i have now set it up on here, feel free to donate if you like although please do not feel you have to

All donations are greatly appreciated

I have a heavily modified postbit legacy file and can not seem to get this to show up. What is the code to put in there?

Also, Google Picassa would be a great addition

Love this...!! Voted!

Yes, also be wonderful if could rename "My Social Networking" ?

Rename Edit:: I've looked around and was able to rename...

However, I would love to be able to add more/different social icons and links from Admin Area. Do you think that will be in an update?

Awesome, and am stunned that vBulletin has not placed more importance on the user profile page. IE: WYSIWYG for the profile editor that would allow a more robust profile delivery.

Just saying....

Afraid not, it uses a specific template hook to define it's location.

Can you post your template code here? That shouldn't and hasn't happened to me before.

I must be a complete idiot. I am new to vBulletin, and am running 4.1.7. The forums are currently turned off until I get the hang of the software and customize the look of the place.

Anyway, I followed your directions to a T except for the following:

I changed the name of the "images" folder to "images2" since there was already an images folder in the root of my forums and I did not want to overwrite that folder when prompted by my ftp client.

Other than that, everything was done the same. The fields show up to enter under my profile settings, but, when I link my FB and Twitter accounts (the only ones I want to use), and save changes, nothing shows up under my name within messages on the forums.

I've uninstalled the plug-in and deleted everything, starting from scratch 3 times and nothing.

You can simply upload folder 16x16 or 24x24 into your images folder without overwrite anything.
