Status update or profile feed?

Post by ShinGamix on June 23rd 2012, 6:27 pm

How would I add a status update or a profile feed to my forum for profiles? I have seen it done before. I am using phpbb2 style.

go to users and groups in the acp section

go to profiles under the USERS tab

Then users options make a new option

TYPE=TEXT FEILD

NAME=STATUS (whatever you want to name)

DESCRIPTIOn: if any

NECESSIARLY FILLED: NO

DISPLAY = both post and messages

MODIFY= USER HIMSELF

DISPLAY= MEMBERS

SEPERATOR= BACK TO LINE


Then
SAVE

if you want to show in the post section under their avatar heres the code


Go to DISPLAY=GENERAL= VIEW TOPIC BODY= FIND THIS CODE

Code:
   <!-- BEGIN displayed -->
        <td class="{postrow.displayed.ROW_CLASS} browse-arrows"{postrow.displayed.THANK_BGCOLOR} align="center" valign="middle" width="150px">
   <tr class="post">
      <td class="{postrow.displayed.ROW_CLASS}"{postrow.displayed.THANK_BGCOLOR} valign="top" width="150px">
         {postrow.displayed.POSTER_AVATAR}<br />
                  <span class="name"><a name="{postrow.displayed.U_POST_ID}"></a><strong>{postrow.displayed.POSTER_NAME}</strong></span><br />
            <span class="postdetails poster-profile">
                                  {postrow.displayed.L_Statut}<br /> 
                                <strong> {postrow.displayed.GROUP_NAME}</strong>
                                {postrow.displayed.RANK_IMAGE}<br />
                                {postrow.displayed.POSTER_RANK}<br /><br />
                                <!-- BEGIN profile_field -->
            {postrow.displayed.profile_field.LABEL} {postrow.displayed.profile_field.CONTENT} {postrow.displayed.profile_field.SEPARATOR}
                                        <!-- END profile_field -->
                                  <left> {postrow.displayed.profile_field.LABEL}</left>
                                Online Status{postrow.displayed.ONLINE_IMG}
                                        {postrow.displayed.POSTER_RPG} <br />
                                  {postrow.displayed.USERLASTVISIT}
                                <!-- BEGIN contact_field -->
                                <br/> <br/>
                                {postrow.displayed.PROFILE_IMG} {postrow.displayed.PM_IMG} 
                                {postrow.displayed.EMAIL_IMG} {postrow.displayed.contact_field.CONTENT}
                                <!-- END contact_field -->
         </span><br />

Do not copy and paste since i have more things than you would or what not...this is the code you will need

Code:
{postrow.displayed.profile_field.LABEL} 

more than likely... if it is not correct i will help you after.

It will show up. Let me warn you though it will show STATUS: WHAT EVER PERSONS STATUS IS....and will overflow control it. so if its lengthy itll be long, you can control how much they type in the edit of the feild option under users...

anymore more help just ask

Yeah shin, making a widget is in the works. If you want to do something like this, you would have to edit almost everyday. Which I'm sure you dont. LG is working on an ajax coding for a widget to make it easier to update from their n not from profile. Check out my forum n see what I mean I'm working on the coding as well. Www.pimpkings.com and you can see how I'm doin with the widget. It very complicated so far.... Though like i said do not copy and paste the code, I have more fields than you do. Find the correct code you need. If you need help let me know and i will try my best...you will need to give me link to your site to help get the exact code you'll need
