Not Supported Template Edits Is in Beta Stage  

Hello, what this mod does is allows users to have a "Video Avatar" if they are a member of the usergroup you specify.

Installation instructions are attached. See screen shots below to get an idea of what it looks like.

UPDATE! I recorded a video of me installing it on a blank board. The video should help anyone having trouble. There are a couple extra things like me closing my password manager that you should ignore, but the video will show you what to do.

Installation Video Instructions

You can change the height and width of the video by changing the attributes in the code.

It requires one template edit, 2 if you use both postbit styles.
It requires one profile field.

I am new to the modding still, and my instructions here aren't great, but you can see it in action here.

UPDATE!
To Display them in your user profiles

couldnt you do this with usergroups??

add a new promotion and set it so that after the user posts 100 times then they're upgraded to a new usergroup then edit the template postbit + postbit_legacy

see here

did you create the profile field and change the template edit field to corresponde with the profile field you just made?

did you type in just the end part of the youtube address in the profile fied of your forum not the whole address to the video?

for example if the address is:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVT8rhtlj6w

only enter

XVT8rhtlj6w

if you've done all this and still doesnt work then follow the instructions given again it took me 3 attempts to get it working lol

TO 4X4 MECCA:

is there any way of allowing this to show in all instances of your avatar and not just the postbit and postbit_legacy?

also is there any way of putting the video avatar selection box in to the "profile.php?do=editavatar" section of the usercp??

this would be great if it could be done thanks
dave

I'm new to installing mods, in fact this my second. I put both sets of code in both postbit and postbit_legacy, edited the FieldXX... I'm not getting the option in my User CP.

Only used the last part of the video URL after the "="

I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

I got it to work. Thank you. Looks awesome.

Just a few things. The avatar isn't centered. It's fine if you have a YouTube video, but my user's avatar are left-aligned. It looks like crap. Anyway to fix that?

And its not viewable in your profile or the homepage, only in threads. Not that big of a deal.

Thanx for the help 4x4 Mecca - but it still didn't align correctly for some odd reason.
Could be something to do with default avatar? I'm not entirely sure - but I thank you for the help anyway - It really is a nice modification - Would love to get this to work for "premium" Members.

Jacquii.

I will search all the templates for the word "avatar" and see how it would be to implement this in other locations. When I do that, I will mark the thread updated.

No problem. If you see avatar anyhwere else, let me know. I see it on the members list, but that's php which is a little out of my reach.
