Not Supported Template Edits Code Changes Additional Files Translations  

Description:

This Add on, gives a selection of Countries that your Member (New or Existing) can choose from in a 'Drop-Down Menu'. The Country he/she selects, will be displayed as a Flag in their Postbit.

Credit for the Flags goes to Cobro. (I have renamed each and every flag to work with this Mod).


Instructions:

Firstly “Upload” ALL the Flag GIF pics to your forum root /images/buttons/flags folder.

IE: yourforumaddress.com/forum/images/buttons/flags

Please Note: Due to the flags folder being too large to upload as one - I have been forced to upload it as "flags1", "flags2" and "flags3" - Please ensure that you add a new folder to "images/buttons/" and name it "flags". Please copy the contents of ALL THREE (3) flags folders in the attachment below to the new 'flags' folder that you have just made. (DO NOT place them as 3 seperate folders!"


Then in your Admin Control Panel (ACP), please do the following:
ACP -> User Profile Fields -> Add New User Profile Field ->Profile Field Type -> Single-Selection Menu (select ‘Single-Selection Menu’ from the Drop-Down Menu) -> Please enter the following into the following fields (REMEMBER to make a note of the FieldID, because you will need to replace ALL the X’s in [fieldX] with it!!!
(Please see 'FieldID.jpg' attachment below).

Add New User Profile Field Single-Selection Menu:

Title = Country Flag
Description = Add your country flag to your profile:
Profile Field Category = (Uncategorized)
Options = Copy & Paste the Whole contents of the file attached below (OPTIONS)
Set Default = None
Display Order = You Select this (dependant on how many you already have)
Field Required = yes, at registration and profile updating
Field Editable by User = Yes
Private Field = No
Field Searchable on Members List = No
Show on Members List = Yes


Optional Input:

Allow user to input their own value for this option = No
Max length of allowed user input = 100
Field Length = 25
Regular Expression = Leave this Blank


Display Page:

Which page displays this option? = Edit Your Details ** Please note that the vB4.0.4 Version does not show this option. Please select "Edit Profile" option. The selct your country flag option, I can confirm, Also shows on registration too.
** SAVE **


Then, In your Admin Control Panel (ACP)...

ACP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> <<>> -> Postbit Templates -> select the template that you use (ie Postbit or Posbit_legacy) – This is for the Postbit_Legacy…

I have just downloaded ALL three folders and gone thorugh every one of their contents.

ALL flags contained within those folders ARE all .GIF, as they should be.

Which flags are referring to, when you say "Some"?

Welshy2008.
not the fact that they are gif.

For example, your file Bosnia-Herzegovina.GIF, but the corresponding country is called Bosnia Herzegovina. Therefore if you select Bosnia Herzegovina as your country, it will look for "Bosnia Herzegovina.gif", which doesn't exist.

Same for:

Cocos -> Cocos Islands - Keelings.GIF
Curacao -> Curaçao.GIF
Ivory Coast -> Cote D'Ivoire.GIF
Saint Kitts Nevis Anguilla -> Saint Kitts & Nevis Anguilla.GIF

etc. there are many differences.

I have added the switzerland flag previously. It is in a post somewhere.

Anyway, I have added it again, it is showing in the "Screenshot" section. Just right click and "Save picture as..."

No Northern Ireland flag though.
