Excellent Mod.

Small issues with special chars, and you need to chmod your xblcache folder on your server, but other than that - brilliant !

I'll look into the special characters - I'm not too familiar with handling them.

Anyplace to grab data?

Bilderback you can use vB_XML_Parser and then it won't be PHP5 dependent.

Awesome modification, I have it installed on my forums now. Even nominated it for MOTM. Keep up the great work and if a PS3 and Wii version are possible those would be great as well.

Install seemed to go OK, but whenever I click on 'Add your gamertag here' it just takes me to the usual edit details page at :

http://********.co.uk/forums/profile.php?do=editprofile

I'm guessing it's something simple I've missed! Anyone got any ideas?

[edit[ it was something simple, but I now get the following error when viewing my profile after putting an xbox gamer tag in :


Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in E:\domains\r\roxorx.co.uk\user\htdocs\forums\member.php(454) : eval()'d code on line 61

Does your php support cURL?
I am searching for an alternative solution to retrieving data.

To be honest, I have no idea! Web stuff aint my specialty in the world of IT sadly. Where would I find that out? The issue isn't down to Profile Fields in some way is it? Under AdminCP I only have field1 through field4.

You could view your phpinfo located in admincp
Maintenance -> View PHP Info
Look for curl support.

I am working on a new release that will replace the php5 and curl dependencies.
