Also ensure you have entered the correct path for your image, normally

Replace styles/stylename with whatever folder you are using for your forum, ie: mine is styles/australia

_______________________________________________

Now goto postbit_legacy


CODE:

<!-- yobromofo british expats twitter addin code-->
<if condition="is_member_of($bbuserinfo, 2, 6, 7, 5)">
<if condition="$post[fieldi]">
<a href="http://twitter.com/$post[fieldi]" target="_blank"><img class="inlineimg"

src="http://www.yourwebsite.com/forum/styles/stylename/statusicon/twitter.png" alt="View $post[username]'s Twitter Profile"

width="16px" height="16px" border="0" /></a></if></if>
<!--end british expats twitter addin code-->



Ensure you paste the amended code, as you have edited it, with correct file path to the image. Plus correct field names !

There is only one actual field, but it does need to be edited in 2 places in the above code.

In Postbit_legacy find:

$post[skypeicon]
</center>

After this add the code above.

Now upload the image to your respective folder.

Thats it.

Have fun. Brought to you by British Expats Australia

Hey the mod looks great!

I have a question though. It is about that screenshot. I see that you have "Rep Power: 2465" for the user from that screenshot. I'm trying to figure out how to do that, please see my thread here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=213855


How do I do that rep power number thing?

Thanks in advance.

great mod, but it ain't working for me..

actually i'm running a 3.8.0 if that makes a difference. i don't see any </center>.

it's $post[skypeicon]</div>

i modified the code and inserted it after </div>, but it didn't work. then again i inserted it before </div>, still didn't work..

any ideas?

thnx

I have the same problem as above.
Edit: Found the solution, our templates are using postbit not postbit_legacy. Search for the same code in postbit and place it under the skype div's ender tag.
