Would it be possible to offer the possibillity to add an extra url  to your profile?  So you can add your YT channel, or Vimeo or whatever?  And the same with age.  If  I want to add my age, year of birth,  I have to add the exact date and that I don't like.  Just a question :)

When someone looks at your profile they see your age in years not the date or they see Age:    N/A

Go to Profile->Modify Profile->Forum Profile

the last lines at the bottom of the page are...

Website: for a link to your site, shows as a small globe under your avatar.

Special1: another link to a website but it shows as text with no icon (so don't make it too long)

Special2: as above?

You can also add links to your signature text but if you get carried away it might start to look a bit "spamy" ;)

Resistance is fertile... you will be illuminated!

Isn't it possible to change it to show text instead of the url? That would make it look less spammy.
Like this:

Code: [Select]

Test:
Fractal forums

hm, I agree, adding youtube would definitely makes sense as a lot of us have zoom videos or animations on their channels.
I just added mine into the special field. it shows but as a full text link - not really appealing.
I wonder if it was hard to hide this behind an icon without too much work, what do you think 3d?
change "special" in user profile to "youtube" and instead of displaying the link just a tiny icon, as at fractalforums.com

..hm, let me see if there is a good mod for this.

--hey red, yep that's a slight improvement already.
having real icons would be best though.. I'm doing a backup and will try a mod.

It seems to work as intended.

yes, but that space is for a users actual website.
I had something like the attached in mind, it's pretty much standard.

tried installing this
https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3304
but I get a few errors that I don't know how to handle - maybe 3d has an idea.

Add_Social_Media_Icons_to_Profiles_v1.2.0 install tests fail for the following reasons...

1. searches for "http" but file only has "https", very easy fix

2. searches for a line in "default" theme NOT in YorkyTheme


fix 1, patch the install to look for "https"

fix 2, set the theme to original "default" theme before install, to get it into Yorky will require a patch to Yorky files after install

I've never patched an installer and don't really know how to do - I could start to learn this, but tbh I'd prefer I someone who already masters this would do..
now who could be this ominous saviour?  ??? :)

not a high priority, but nice to have.

On one hand, its good in that users can promote themselves, on the other hand its not because it drives traffic away from FF to those sites.

Your call 8)

edit: I did a test install and got it to work but not in Yorky just default and DilberMC_2, I uninstalled too at least until you get some consensus or put your foot down or whatever.

I like to believe that integrating social media also helps to direct traffic towards the forum, being a two way street.
after all you get totally different things here and there..

good to know it's possible for a start.

okay, gotta go..
