Steam profile

Post by greek-leonidas on September 23rd 2013, 12:38 am

Hi my problem is that
When i go to admin panel --> User & Groups --> Profiles --> Contact fields
and i make a new field :
Name : Steam
Description :Steam name
Necessarily filled ? Yes
Display : Profile Messages
Display type :Icon
Who can modify the profile field value ? Member himself
Display this field for users that are at least : Members

Now going to contact i cant see anything about steam so i tried the other ones........but nothing
If i go to my profile and fill it up then when i hit save it dissapears.How can i solve this so i can have steam contacts with 1 click?

Thanks in advance

When making this type of contact field it would be best to choose the type 'web address' this allows the user to put any web address they want into the field. That is the only drawback when making contact fields using web address. However since this specific field is for steam the user should feel more inclined to put their steam profile url into the field.

Make sure to choose this option:

The problem is that most users dont have knowledge to put the web address of their steam profile.So i just want them to give us their steam name so we can add them in if we want.Now web address doesnt let u put a steam name account since its not a proper http link.Is there a way to solve this or the forumotion developers should apply Steam in that drop list(it has xfire) since Steam is a big community?

There is another way you can do this which does not involve urls. You'll instead just use plain text.

Navigate to..
Administration Panel > Users & Groups > Users > Profiles > Profile fields

Click create a new field(Add) and fill out the fields as follows..

Type: Text field
Name: Steam or Steam ID
Description: Anything you want
Url icon: Anything you want
Necessarily filled: No
Display: Profile, Messages
Display Type: Text, or Icon + Text if you have an icon
Who can modify: Members
Display this field for users that are at least: Members
Separator: Back to the line

Default content: empty
Max length: either 20-40 characters
Save!

Once you're finished you should have a working ID system for your forum which displays a users 'steam id' in profiles and messages.

I have a similar system setup on my bb2 board:

Thanks for the time and the advices Seth.The truth is that i tried this and i might finish up there but i wanted a button(like it was in xfire) that u just press and link to the account at once.The way u say is that i have to remember the steam id and put it in my steam account(2 steps).The way i say is 1 step(just press the button and u connect(contact field).If there is no alternative then i will do it the fisrt way.Hope at least the admins of forumotion might think that as an update since Steam has a lot of people and funs.
