Support

I use my released mods daily, if I find an issue with them or add features for myself I will release updates. If there are significant bugs or simple feature requests I will do my best to release fixes. Some of my mods rely on fetching data from 3rd party websites, due to the unreliable results, my mods will require users to troubleshoot for themselves if they find the addon is not working for them specifically. I am offering my personal mods that work ok for me for you to use, I am sorry I do not have time to troubleshoot many user specific issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Features

  • Lists all ranked Gamertags, each updated once per day
  • Optionally show unranked Gamertags (Original Xbox Users).
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live message sending.
  • Optionally allow Xbox Live friend requests.
  • Optionally to choose how many User Names Per Page to display.
  • Optionally require a minimum post count.

  • Optionally display Postbit leaderboard rank

Doesn't sound like it installed properly. I can't suggest anything other than double check the installation.

Another quick question for you Blackjack, I have the link displayed in my navbar, but I've also got my forums setup to have a second row in the navbar. How do I move the Leaderboard link from one row to another?

Hmm, you will have to turn off auto add link and insert a link manually in your second bars template.

Currently, anyone who has a gamertag entered in their profile will be listed. I need to work on improving that feature. If their gamertag is removed from their profile, it will be deleted from the leaderboard on the next update.

You haven't really given me much to go on to help you troubleshoot it.

You haven't waited for the cron to run, you have not entered any gamertags into a profile, you haven't setup the fieldid option in the config, your server can't resolve the xbox.com domain.

Anything beyond that, you will have to provide much more information.

You can name the field whatever you like. All I can figure is happening is that your server can not resolve the xbox.com domain. Try pining xbox.com.

You used the field # specific to your boards? field15 is just an example, the actual number is often unique to different users.
