Changeable Member Profile Page Banner

Will work on all 3.8 series

Description: Your members can add a banner above their Profile page.
=====================================================
Demo: http://blind-eddie.com/forum/member.php?u=1

Music will play in profile, please adjust volume before clicking.
=====================================================
Step One:
You will need to make a new User Profile Field.

Admincp/User Profile Fields/Add New User Profile Field

Single-Line Text Box

Title: Add a banner above your profile

Description: Please add your Image URL
(Example: http://blind-eddie.com/forum/imagehosting/14f7bd890a86c3.jpg)

Field Required: No

Field Editable by User: Yes

Display Page: Edit Details


Save it Remember the field ID number, you will need it later.

=====================================================
Step Two:

You will need to edit your MEMBERINO template.
(MAKE A BACKUP OF ANY TEMPLATE YOU EDIT BEFORE YOU EDIT IT, YOU MAY NEED IT IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE.)
Find:
$navbar

Add below:
<div align=center><if condition="$userinfo['fieldxx']"><td class="vbmenu_option"><IMG SRC="$userinfo[fieldxx]" width="600" height="150"></td></tr> </if></div>

Note: Change the xx in fieldxx to the profile field you created.
=====================================================

As you see, I set the default Image size allowed to 600 x 150. Any image a member adds will show image at that size.
=====================================================

Step Four: Inform your Members...Enjoy

You can click Installed above right, or you can just say Thanks blind-eddie (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=199709)
=====================================================

Can you set the profile fields so only specified groups can use them? EDIT:

I have found this to work better on our style:

<if condition="$userinfo['fieldxx']">
<div align="center"><img src="$userinfo[xx]" width="400" height="120"></div></if>

I dont see any picture come up in FF, it is just black where the banner should probably be.

Change width="600" height="150" to what suits your needs, or remove that line of code altogether, but keep in mind that removing it will allow members to show images of any size.

This is a cool little hack. It reminds me of the way you can add your own images/banners at the top of your profile page on Myspace.

Thanks, If you look at the demo, you will see I moved the banner to above the navbar. To do this,

In the MEMBERINO template, find

$header

delete it.




then add the line of code list in first post.

im wondering if i can use this for social groups instead, so that when a user creates a social group, the banner shows on their social group page.

On your demo, are you using a hack to get the "Welcome Message area", the custom colors, usercp menu, youtube video options?? IF so, which one because I don't see those options in my usercp.

The welcome massage area is a mod/hack that is here on vb.org.

The custom colors you see are default with vbulletin.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Usercp menu ?

The youtube mod/hack can also be found here on vb.org , http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169824&highlight=youtube

You need to clarify a bit more, that is a pretty vague statement. :)

Its just a simple template edit for VB 3.8 and below, there there's no way it can mess up your page.

In your admincp/User Profile Fields/User Profile Field Manager/Add a banner above your profile,
Scroll to last section, "Display Page" in the drop down, select "Options:Other"
The banner link will not show in the About me section, it will show in the "Edit Options" page.

I will update this tomorrow to be like the 4.2.2 version.
