Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files  

Everyone loves Xbox Live . Anyhow, there are a few other ways to get the gamertag into the postbit templates but wow does that look ugly!

So I figured "wouldn't it be cool if it looked like the Skype logos?" With that said I looked around and did a lot of fooling around on my test board. This is the end result:

XBL GamerCard as a IM button esque thing
1 - Step one - Create a user profile field (Admin CP => User Profile Fields => Add New

Single Line Text Box
Title: Xbox Live GamerTag
Description: Enter your Xbox Live GamerTag
Show on Member List: On
Field Searchable on Members List: On
The rest of the values are yours to mess in if you want to

2 - Take note of the field value (mine is field9)

3 - Time to edit your template (postbit/postbit_legacy) The path to do so from the Admin CP panel is : Admin CP => Styles and Templates => Template Manager => (Select 'Edit Templates' in the drop down menu for the template you wish to edit => Press [ ] beside 'Postbit Templates' => [Customize] either 'postbit' or 'postbit_legacy'

Find:

Replace with:


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

Do NOT forget to change 'field5' to whatever field yours is. The image goes in your style's misc. folder.

That's all folk!

Because of my Mac's TextEdit difficulties (isn't compatible for some reason but has been in the past ) I've attached the logo and a PDF of these instructions.

Hi A17!

Admin CP => Styles and Templates => Template Manager => (Select 'Edit Templates' in the drop down menu for the template you wish to edit => Press [ ] beside 'Postbit Templates' => [Customize] either 'postbit' or 'postbit_legacy.' Then just follow the instructions .

Anyhow, postbit is the horizontal one and postbit_legacy is the vertical view like the one you see here (notice how the data is all vertically oriented on the left column in this thread instead of horizontally).

If you need any more help don't hesitate to ask . Oh yeah - the image is 21x21 for no reason at all - it won't matter as it appears just fine .

Very nice hack.

Is there a way when you click on the gamercard that it opens a new window to xboxlive?

Also is there a way to add this to the user profile page?

Thanks

No - its an iframe, so its mean to be put on web pages .

User profile - sure. Its very easy actually. I'm going to be releasing another "hack" (if this can even be considered one ) which will show you how to add features such as the ability to send an Xbox Live friend request, etc.

Does someone know how they did this with the camercard option. This site makes the card pop up when the pointer goes over it.
