Awards System Empty Awards System

I recently created an Awards list today so that my members can get awards: AWARDS LIST
But I saw the tutorial about awards system at the tricks & tips section but if I use that method the profile would look terrible because of so many awards.

So,Is there any alternative ?

Actually... I have created an alternative to the award system that Forumotion currently has on tutorial. And I personally think the results are better when displayed... And it takes only three simple steps. Though there are a few tips in the end, but they aren't exactly a key part.


Go to the Profile Fields area in your admin control panel.
Admin Control Panel -> Users & Groups -> Profiles


Add your award field... and fill in the details.

For this I have named mine "Badges". For this system you want the field to be a Text Zone, you should leave the URL Icon empty, and leave the display type as Text... The rest is up to you. Once finished click save.

Alright, with our badge field now created we are actually all done in the admin panel and can go to our forum to actually add the badges... Lets go to a random members profile. For this I am just going to my own. We now see the empty field...

And we will add our badges right from there. Simply find the image you wish to use as a badge (I suggest something on the smaller side for appearances sake) and simply insert the image for the badge right into the profile using the BBC image tags...


When inserting the codes it would look something like this...

And with the code inserted and saved it would look like this on a persons profile...

And voila! You have your badges. Yes you have to go around and provide members with them manually... However that would have had to been done no matter what. I do have a few last minute tips though...


If you wish to provide a member an award for simply joining the forum, a members award/badge if you will... well then when creating the profile spot in step two go down to text field and enter the image code in the default content box. It will provide a member with the award automatically. If needed press 'replace the content' to provide it to any members who have already registered. But beware, if you have already entered other badges, this will replace them.

Another suggestion which will make this simple system all the simpler... Impossible one may think. Well think again. All you have to do is simply create a master badge list which provides the image codes so that all you or your staff have to do is copy and paste the code... Even simpler right?

Since this is a text zone you could provide text descriptions for your badges beside them. Also other BBCodes would work so you could style it how you wish... (ex: Centering the images)

Hope this  gives you a system you can work with and with results you find pleasing. Let me know how it goes. ^^
