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

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

Profile Field Type - Single-Line Text Box
Title - Vimeo

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!

Did that, still nothing showing up when I save my profile after entering in the fields. I'm using direct links to my twitter and facebook profiles as instructed.

I noticed that when I go into Admin CP>Plugins & Products>Manage products I can edit the Social Networking plugin. When I click on Edit, there is an Add New Product Dependancy field and a Add New Install/Uninstall Code. The fields in these categories are left blank by default. Should I be inputting something into these areas? There is nothing in the installation instructions about doing so.

The directions seem pretty straightforward and I'm following them word for word so I really don't know what the problem is....other than the fact that I'm a complete newb to all of this.

Sorry for the late response guys, busy times.

Anyway to answer a few questions:

When will the update be out - As soon as possible, hopefully in the next 2 weeks.

Why are the images not working - If you are not placing them in the correct directory then it will not work. Don't change it to images2, just upload, it will not overwrite, it will merge the folders. Take a backup of your images folder if you are worried.

Cheers

Thanks for the reply, I tried this just now ant it didn't work. Everything seems to go fine, I get no errors, etc. The fields show up in the edit profile page, I fill them with links, save...and nada.

-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

I only put these 4 in because that is all I want, for now.

Step 2 - Downloaded zip file, extracted, selected 16x16 option and uploaded it to forums root. Screenshot shows the folder sitting in the images folder.

Step 3 - Went to admincp -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product and upload the install file (product-socialpostbit.xml). I did this via the browse computer option, not the "import XML file from your server" option.

Step 4 - Went to admincp -> Options -> [Boydy]Social Networking in Postbit. Screenshot depicts how I filled out the fields. 5 for Twitter, 6 for Facebook, 7 for Google+, all other fields were 0, except for YouTube which is 8 (screen wasn't big enough to fit it on the screenshot). Clicked Save, said settings saved successfully.

Step 5 - Screenshot shows the user profile fields were successful.

Step 6 - Filled those in correctly (only using Twitter/Facebook), others left blank. Saved changes to profile successfully.

Step 7 - Go back to forums and check out a thread, nothing shows up.

Hope this helps diagnose the problem, thanks for your help I appreciate it.

Ahh, i see the problem mate, you are entering the wrong numbers, from this picture it's the field# you want not the display order,

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...4&d=1321572251

So it should be:

Twitter = 24
Facebook = 25
Google+ = 26
YouTube = 27

Fix that and you should be sorted

Now that I've finally got it installed...lol...one last question I think.

Is the above quote what I need to do to get them all in one line since I am only allowing 4 new fields? (Twitter, FB, Google+, and Youtube) I wouldn't need 2 lines for all 10 icons since I'm only using 4, right?

Cheers.
