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

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!

How long do you reckon??
Well I intended on releasing it today but there is a fault in my area so I have no broadband, using my phone just now. As soon as my bb is back up I'll be releasing it.

They have to input the Url for their accounts mate.

EDIT: Broadband is finally working after a long night/morning. Will be releasing the update in a few hours.

New screenshots have also been uploaded, had to combine the location of block in profile screenshots due to the 10x attachment limit.

Cheers

Disabling in postbit doesn't work for me in 4.1.4, all styles including original. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. None of the postbit templates have been modified.

I have to be careful with privacy on my class site, so I've just deleted the product postbit templates.

Hmm, strange as i did all the work on 4.1.4. Could you provide a bit more info on what's happening.

EDIT: I've found a small bug, leave it with me.

I notice if I turn the block OFF, that the icons return to the stacked look, as well as the top margin increase I did with the patch you gave me in postbit_social disappears. If I turn the block ON, they patches I've used seem to work again.

Is there a different template (or some other place) I can change the top margin and also delete the <br/> to make the two appearances the same, whether the block is on or off?

Thanks ..

Regards,
Doug

Yeh when the block is off it uses a different template.

Use this guide,

Open Template -> postbit_social1

Find and remove <br />

Add to top - <div style="margin-top:10px;">

Add to bottom - </div>

Change 10px to what you want. The spacing only seems to be an issue in your postbit as you have other features there mate as on my clean install with no other mods the spacing is fine.

Thanks ... I thought there might be a different template for the "no box" look and feel. ...

I'll edit that template as well ....

By the way, for whatever reason, I never had the margin problem using your old template direct patch routine, so I don't know why this approach causes this with our site.

Doug

It's because i never used any margins on the template modification, just a couple of line breaks but with this things were meant to be much more orginized lol.

Template is postbit_social1 btw, i did edit my post.

Patched postbit_social1 so the icons now appear side-by-side with 2 and the margin is an extra 10pts making it 20pts.

Looks good....

Thanks for your efforts ...
