View Full Version : Miscellaneous Hacks - Last.fm Widget in MEMBERINFO Template

27 Mar 2008, 15:16
I've had a couple of people ask on my forums how I did this, so here it is:

Create a new User Profile Field:

Profile Field Type: Single Line Textbox
Title: Last.fm
Description: Last.fm Username

Write down the Field ID (ie: field20), you'll need it in a few minutes.

Create your Last.fm Widget:

Create your widget at http://www.last.fm/widgets - customize the type and color for your forums, then copy the HTML code.

Edit the MEMBERINFO template:

Find the end of your table code, above the footer variable.

(The code below may need to be tweaked a little based on your own style, this is just a guideline)

Replace the table closing tag with:

<!-- Last.fm -->
<if condition="$post['fieldXX']">
<td class="tcat" width="100%" colspan="2">Music</td>
<tr valign="top">
<td class="panelsurround" align="center" colspan="2">
<div class="panel">
<div align="$stylevar[center]">

Replace 'fieldXX' with your user profile field field number (ie: 'field20')
Insert your widget HTML code
Find and Replace all instances of your last.fm username used to create the widget with your user profile field id variable (ie: ?url=user%2FHENRY should become ?url=user%2F$post[fieldXX]) - bold is only for looks. ^.^
Close the table with the following (tweak code according to style):

<else />
<!-- /End Last.fm -->

heya, any idea how you do it for the tabbed profiles? I had it before in a previous version but accidently reverted my templates without backup (grrz)

I tried just seeing if I could add it at the bottom but not having much luck, I think this is a brilliant mod, very underated!
