How to link a PHP variable to an image? (to create a Profile button)

Post by karkooshy on June 24th 2011, 1:28 pm

I'm currently working on a navbar... and what really bugs me is the fact that the 'Profile' link on the default navbar, actually links to the 'Edit Profile' page... and in the edit profile page, we have an option to see our profiles Razz
If anything, the link has to be to our profiles, and in our profiles pages, there should be a link to edit the profile xP
Anyways, I realized the PHP variable USERLINK gives each user a direct link to their actual profile... but there are a couple of problems in adding this to the navbar...
1. Some templates don't accept this PHP variable.. apparently
2. My navbar is made of images and i truthfully have no idea how to link this variable to an image to create a button xD

Wondering if anyone has any ideas on the matter..
Thank you in advance Smile

I don't know what you mean, but this is what I did because it doesn't redirect to the profile, I made a button with the writing User CP (User Control Panel), and made that the image. So when users click it, they expect to be at a edit profile page XD

Thanks Dion... I think I understand... but it's still not working... xP
Anything wrong with the code I'm using?

Code:

<span id=unl>{USERLINK}</span><script src="http://yourjavascript.com/82932161441/userlink.js" type="text/javascript"></script>


I'm using it in the profile_add_body template for profiles....
Also if I were to apply an image, where does the img tags go?
Thank you again Smile
(Awesome site btw)

here is what i do,

1) Go to Display>Headers & Navigation
2) Make a customized menu
3) Put the title as Profile2 or whatever,insert your Picture for the profile,insert the text,and insert the url you want to go to e.g. /forum
4) Create it
5) Push the up arrow until its below Profile
6) Go to Display>Pics management
7) Clear the field for Edit your profile and save

Now when you go to your forum you will have that custom link that says profile and it will direct you to your profile Very Happy

Thanks a bunch Smile
Although I've already tried that xD
And like mgt98 said, what did you put as the link? There's a different link for every profile... only a PHP variable would work... I think Razz
Thanks for the help anyways ^^

The second code there should work...
You can easily create a custom element, and append it to your navigation...

Something like this:
Code:
$(function() {
    var uid = document.getElementById('uid').innerHTML;

    if (uid !=-1) {
        var x = $('a.mainmenu[href*="/profile?mode=editprofile"]')[0];

        x.href = '/u'+ uid;
        x.innerHTML = 'My profile';
    }
});
