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

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!

Thanks..that worked. Not sure why I was doing the display order number. Must have slightly miss read the instructions or something.

2) I don't know why is the 4th icon displaying on a new line of its own, How can I have all the icons on the same row or at least 4 on each row rather than 3? I see it unnecessary to go on a new line as that just makes the postbit enormous for no reason really it could easily fit 1 or 2 more icons

I can confirm this is happening to me too. Some where in the code, the icons must be set to display in a certain order. I have twitter and facebook on the top line, and youtube on the bottom line.

However, I agree with everyone, that hopefully there is a way to have them all in 1 line, except when necessary to have 2 lines.

I followed the steps exactly and even double checked each step to make sure I did it right. I also made sure I was putting the field number and not the display number (which they are the same) and it doesnt work. Nothing shows up on the forum at all, even in the members profile.

Ok, with regards to using usernames, you can use the xml from post 32 to have it setup that way - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...7&postcount=32

With regards to the line break, go into your templates - postbit_social1 - find <br /> and remove it, save and that's you.

It's stupid, i should never have used a line break as not everyone was going to use all of the options. So in the update i have implemented a wrapper.

I can confirm that removing the <br /> from the postbit_social1 template file, allows the icons to stay on 1 line (depending on how many your using of course.

I did the XML file on post 32, but you still have to enter the full URL, at least for me.

I uninstalled it then reinstalled it using the XML in post 32


Then I changed my profile Twitter field from the full URL which was http://twitter.com/BB_Matrix to >>> only >> BB_Matrix

But when I click on the link now after I refresh the page in one of the threads, this is where it takes me to:

http://http//www.twitter.com/BB_Matrix


Same thing happens with Facebook


http://http//www.facebook.com/matrixleader


it is adding an extra http// I don't know why

Google + works fine though

Can you please fix this ASAP?

Thanks a lot for your help this is a great mod

EDIT:

I fixed it myself

you have to go to the postbit_social1

then look for Twitter

then look for where you see the URL

and remove the extra http

same thing for Facebook

then save and reload

now I can enter the usernames only

Yeh, few bugs appearing now, which is good as 2.0 is going to be a pretty big release as a lot of the code structure has changed and there are a lot of bug fixes and new features. ETA at the moment is this coming weekend, although that may change to less or more, just depends on my free time!

It's not too far away anyway folks...
