Ok so i have a few probelms..

one thing is that the facebook doesn't work, & i dont see where to make the URL edits..?
*edit*
I found the edits.. they're in the zip folder. lol
But i still get - http://www.facebook.com/542920214


Another problem (although im sure it is simple) is that i still have the box that used to go around the Social Networking icons, but now the box is empty & below the icons..!?

There is a mistake in the Facebook section of the MEMBERINFO text given in the zip. Here is what it reads with the issues in BOLD:

Notice the difference in the links. 2 different URLs are created for the icon that displays in the postbit and the link that will show in the member's profile. Also.... the word "user" in the second URL has no place there at all... no need for it.

They should either both read "facebook.com/$userinfo[fieldXX]" which means the user would have to put "profile.php?id=1234567" in their profile field...

OR

They should both read "facebook.com/profile.php?id=$userinfo[fieldXX]" which means the user would have to put "1234567" in their profile.

I chose the second choice... less room for error for the user. Until those two URLs match, you will have an issue. In the member's profile, you'll have the icon sitting next to the link like it's supposed to. However, one will work, and one won't.
I had to make this edits in the Postbit Legacy also..!?


So everything appears to be working now, except the empty box is still in postbit under the icons.
And I dont see these links on my profile. (but im sure that is a whole other story, since im using 3.8 & i have major profile mods)

HOLY SH*T.. i think i got it.. lol
the links work, the icons are there, my only small issue now is the empty box in postbit..
And that the links on my profile are see-thru, no background.?

URL is ugly, is it supposed to look like that.? (i would think that they should work & look just like the postbit where it is just the icon)


I think someone should repackage this into one zip.
And make the "fb url" edits to the postbit also

That would help immensely..

I made some modifications to the codes and was able to install and make it work. The FB bar is displayed under the users avatars, however if the user has not loaded an avatar the function does not show up. Any ideas anyone?
