Default Include LinkedIn And Social Media Sites Within Your Forum Posts

To see an example, look to the left below my picture and you'll see my links.

Here is how to add yours:

In the navigation bar directly under the puppy at the top of the page look for the "My Settings" link. (My Settings used to be called "User CP")

Once you arrive at the My Settings page look in the left column under "Control Panel - Setting & Options".

Click "Edit Profile." This will bring you to the profile editor.

Scroll down to the "Additional Information" section and you'll find the fields to enter the URL for your social media pages.

I've started things off with: LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, MyBlogLog and Twitter. If there are others that should be included post them in this thread. We aren't going to list them all but will include those most popular with our members.

Here are the guidelines regarding social media links:

Social media links may not link to any adult content. This includes bikini sites, babe of the day sites, sites with excessive profanity, etc. We reserve the right to determine what is acceptable.

Social media links that do not follow our terms of service will be edited or deleted without notice.

Very cool feature.

Can you make it so there is a couple spaces where you can add a link to an other site? For example, on linkedin they give the option to have 3 websites of your choice with anchor text. Many people choose to put in their own site, a blog, or a company site.

I like the idea but for the time being I want to keep it focused on social media sites and have the members use their sig file for their sites.

This is cool. You should add blogcatalog. I like this feature, though.

Hi bizzy bee. The functionality doesn't display until members have reached a certain number of posts to deter spam. I've changed your status so your social profile links now display.
