Not Supported Template Edits Additional Files Re-usable Code  

Hi guys,

This is the first mod/hack i have published on here although i do have other projects in use on my own forums.

This mod/hack gives a user the abillity to share their accounts on Twitter/Facebook/MySpace/Bebo/Linkedin/Flickr/Tumblr/Youtube/Vimeo/PSN/XBL which appear in the postbit/postbit legacy.

=|= Install =|=

=|= Step 1 =|=
The first step you will need to go through is creating the custom profile fields for the following:

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 done the above please take a note of the profile field numbers that show under the "name" heading in the admincp, eg;



=|= Step 2 =|=

The second step is to download one of the attached zip files containing the images and upload them to the root of your forums. The exact URL should be:

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



=|= Step 3 =|=

We have 2 options here, you can have it with or without the block.

Social Networking with Block

This option is ONLY available to members that use the Vertical Postbit (postbit_legacy);

Open Template - Postibit Templates -> postbit_legacy

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



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



NOTE:
Please remember to replace # with the relevant profile field number that you created earlier!

With this update you will also need to add all of your relevant profile field numbers to the line of code at the top, if you are not using all of the social accounts then just add the numbers you need and remove the rest.

This is the line of code in question:

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

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Social Networking without Block

This is available to members who use both the Vertical or Horizontal postbit.

Open Template - Postibit Templates -> postbit_legacy or postbit

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



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

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And that's it! Screenshots below showing you how it looks in both postbit templates.

If you have any questions/issues please post below and i'll be happy to help. Also if you wish to request any other Social Networking sites to be added just post a commment and i'll see what i can do!

Hope you enjoy this mod/hack, please make sure you mark as installed!

Thanks!

Boydy

Ok... got it.

I thought I was supposed to be adding in the "social media manager". Found out that it is the "user profile fields" ..

I think I got it

It is almost what I was looking for..... I was hoping that I could do a "Digg this post" etc..
with it.

It seems a bit high in the postbit, unless that's what you want. It should be under your posts and the current IM services that show.

If you need help on location post your postbit code in here and i'll take a look. Also there are already mods here on vb.org for like/tweet/digg this thread.

Such as - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ght=tweet+post

I can't seem to find one for "digg" if you like i can look into this for you if you need it?

So do you just add that code or do you change the code above in the 1st post to format this change?

Installed with thanks for testing ...

I'm not sure why the icons are up as high as they are and in the wrong place ...

I put the code where suggested, but that's where they ended up ..

Any idea how to relocate them to the bottom?

Thanks for any feedback ...

Regards,
Doug

Edit: Figured it out ... moved code within IM block and they appear in the right place fine now.

This is similar to my old release for VB3.
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=224861

Yours is specifically for postbits, mine had edited files in VB3 to show up other places social networking was added, like profiles, member list, etc.
I don't have time to rewrite mine for VB4 but this would be better IMO if VB recognized these additional fields for profiles. You can look and see what I did and use whatever I did to hard-code it in there if you were looking to make it more integrated throughout VB instead of just postbits (which is something that would be beneficial for people who often refer to profiles like they do on my server).

Thanks for a great mod

I would like to add the following text right above the icons;

<span class="smallfont">Følg {vb:raw post.username} via Sosiale Medier</span>

The text is fine, but I would like it only to be visble when one or more of the social media is used.

Any idea how to to do it?

Thanks,

Morten
