Add MSN Messenger Field to profile

I was fiddling around today with templates and stuff, and decided that I wanted my MSN messenger field(which was a custom field at the time) up next to the AIM and YAHOO messenger fields (it looks kind of silly down there with Location, etc). So I moved it up there, just adding a row with MSN: and $bbuserinfo[fieldx] in it. Well, the bottom one still showed up( as it is supposed to ;)). So I made it so it doesn't appear to users, and the name didn't appear in the new row I made; it was blank also. So I made this hack =P. (my first :D)

Very simple, post here if any problems. If you want a screenshot, Just Look at the AOL instant messenger field and pretend it says MSN.

I searched, and all I can find is an add-on the Christian's MSN Message Center which still uses a custom field.

And there is another one, released around the same time that is less like the others, but it doesn't use a custom field.

Ok then, didn't see in my search. Thanks.

Still a nice hack, much simpler, but I am gonna use the more integrated one. ;)

Nice work. :D

Yeah, the other has the icon and stuff =P. If mods could delete this, that'd be grrreat :).

Link14716 11 Aug 2002 23:30

Like I said though, some people want more simpler ones, so, no need for deletion :)

zootsuit 11 Aug 2002 23:36

Yeah, don't delete...I'm gonna try it! :)

Bah, I had the instrucs wrong. If you installed, re-do it. Or change all the places it says $bbuserinfo[msn] to $userinfo[msn] except in the 'modifyprofile' template.

I am a beginner. Can you please answer a very simple question for me? Where do I go to comply with the following:

Step 1

Run this query:

ALTER TABLE user ADD msn varchar(40) NOT NULL;
