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:

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.

MSWord opens it.

Save as a "dos" txt file w/o formating.

ya the postbit still needs work

The DIV tag shifts it to the next line.

Here are the instructions with the /images/misc directory and formatted in dos text. Great hack. You solved the only problem I had with installing the other hack which was collapsing it down.

Lots of beer and 10 mins of faffing around and i've got the icon to lineup with the rest correctly.
