  • How do I implement ICQ, AIM and Yahoo Integration?

    Look through the templates for
    <!-- $ post[icqicon] --> <!-- $ post[aimicon] --> <!-- $ post[yahooicon] -->
    Change to:
    $post[icqicon] $post[aimicon] $post[yahooicon]

    can you specify through which templates i have to browse?

    i tried some templates and i have still hardcoded $ post[icqicon] in the threads and userlist (no images) ;(

    i don´t want to play around too long, because i have arount 30-70 users at the same time on my board...

    thanx in advance.

      It would be the postbit template if you want to display them in the messages, etc.

      Remember to put the $ and post[icqicon] together as: $post[icqicon]

      The same goes to yahoo and aim....

              It's in one of the postbit templates I think.

                    make sure you delete the space after the dollar sign!

                        FYI- The icons will only show up for users who have filled in their "IM NAMES" in their profiles. If I remove my ICQ number, the ICQ icon will disappear from all of my posts, and if I put it back in, it will show it again.

                        My question, is that Yahoo and ICQ show the user's status if they are online/offline, but AIM does not. Did I do something wrong here, or is this just the standard way it does things. If so, does anyone know how to get it to show the online status?

                            I've just tried this and I AIM has appeared ok, but not Yahoo. Unfortunately I remember accidentally deleteling the file from the 'default' template a while back - it disappeared from the Global set too. :-(

                            How do I get the Yahoo template back??
