A quick guide on adding a Nintendo Wii Friend Code profile field and postbit icon. Example here or see attached screenshot.

Step 1: Add Profile Field

Go to your Admin CP and add a new profile field for the Wii Code. This option can be found under User Profile Fields >> Add New User Profile Field. I suggest you use Single-Line Text Box with a maximum length of 19 (that allows for 16 digits and three spaces). Name the field something like "Nintendo Wii Friend Code."

Save, and check the Profile Field Manager. Make a note of the field name. For me, it is 'field5', but your results will differ depending on what your other profile fields are.

Step 2: Create & Upload an Appropriate Image for the Postbit

Create an image that is appropriate for Nintendo Wii and will fit nicely next to the other communication icons. Since I already made an appropriate icon for Nintendo Wii news posts, I have re-used that icon on my site for Wii Friend Codes. Create an icon that works well on your site, and upload it to your images folder. Make a note of the image URL, you will need that for the next step.

Step 3: Add Postbit Icon

Now pull up the AdminCP and go to Styles & Templates >> Style Manager. Choose Edit Template for the template your site is using (repeat this step for each unique root-level tempate your site uses). Open the Postbit Templates section and choose either Postbit or Postbit_Legacy depending on which type of postbit your site uses (vertical or horizontal).

Edit the template to include an image after your communication icons are listed.

The code template to display the image is below:


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

For instance, here is my communication icon line before and after edits:

Before:


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

After:


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

Step 4: Test it Out & Notify Your Users

Go to your User CP, and update your profile with your Wii Code (or make one up if you don't have a Wii :P). That number should show up on your profile and as an icon in your postbit. If everything works, annouce it to your community and encourage them to add their Wii numbers.

Annoying thing is, Nintendo Friend Code is different for each game

Thanks for the support, guys

GamerJunk.net - The Nintendo DS friend code is indeed per-game. The Nintendo Wii code is per-system.

Ok, when I input the wii code itself while editing the profile, I can put in the # etc etc. When it shows on my postbit, itll display the image, but will not display the number? Any ideas? Thanks!

If you just cut and pasted this part,

You need to look at the field number for your Wii code field. If it isn't field5, nothing will show when you over over the Wii image.

You'll have to see what the field number is in your profile fields manager and edit the template again to change it from field5 to whatever field number it is.

Thanks for this I'm using it for Wii and XBox Live GamerTag

I have a question... how can I get this to work with check boxes. I have 6 check boxes to tell which games people have in my forum. I get how the code would work I just need to know how the forum would if its checked or not?

Correct, you will need to edit that code appropriately. Also please be sure to change the image URL to an image on your own server

I must be missing something... I don't think you could represent a Wii Number with checkboxes... at least not efficiently. In binary representation, the Wii Code would need fifty-some checkboxes... and I doubt anyone would decode that :P
