Facebook & Twitter Profile Links

Postby trilobyte » Wed May 23, 2012 3:47 am

You now have the option to add a link to your Facebook and Twitter accounts in your ePlaya profile! When you do, they will be displayed in the profile, view topic mini profile and in PM's mini profile. To set it up, go to your User Control Panel -> Profile page and enter the URL of your user pages on those sites.

Then click the 'submit' button to save the changes, and you should be all set. Other users will see links to your pages on your user profile (when they click on your name).

They will also see buttons linking to your Facebook and Twitter accounts in the mini-profile that displays alongside posts & private messages.

To remove the buttons/links, simply clear out those fields on your profile.

That's it - enjoy!

When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

I don't seem to be able to edit my posts in this thread, so I'll just add that I don't see my icons showing up.

AH HAH!

Luring us in with potential new twitter followers, to make us fill out the NOW MANDATORY "Burning Since"...

CRAFTY.

I'll fill it out anyway, since twitter followers is how I justify my continued existence.

Interesting. I guess I just can't see my own? Wonder why I can see the icons for AOL, MSN, et.al.?

If you look at the pictures Trillo posted, it appears that they also should be showing up in the posts under your Avatar where all the rest of them show up.

@jkisha - they should be there, perhaps you may need to clear cache in your web browser?

@Nipple - it's more like accidental craftiness. The 'burning since' field was made mandatory on registration as a spammer prevention measure (it hasn't stopped them all, but it has slowed them down a bit). The site's fine for existing users who haven't filled in the 'burning since' info, until you go to update that page.

@junglesmacks - as of this writing, lemur doesn't have any additional accounts/options set up (beyond PM & email).

Argh! Google Chrome. It's the only browser I use that does that. I used to love Chrome but since the last update, it's sort of quirky. (or maybe it's just me. :))

Thanks

Whoops, my mistake. I see those two options because of admin powers, you shouldn't see anything under his name.

I didn't notice and until now, I didnt think of it. But now, I feel this obsessive urge to PM you. Great! I will live a life of deprivation.

If you fill out & enable everything, it'll wrap around to a second line of buttons. Personally I think that amount of being connected would drive me batty. I have accounts on other services, but don't use them socially very often… so they stay empty.

I was the same way about it until I discovered Trillian Astra. All your accounts in one place.
