Messenger Status Indicator Icons in Posts
#1
Question 
Hi all,

i'm really missing a loved functionality in the latest MyBB which is the display of status indicators for given instant messenger details under every post.

I actually found the skype plugin which displays it only for the newly added skype field but not for the existing msn/icq/yahoo Sad

I've tried to do a plugin for msn/yahoo/icq based on that but actually my coding skills are too poor and accordingly i dont find the right fields, infos etc...

To get started:
Most of the IM Services already provide Status Indicator Icons, e.g. like the Skype Plugin uses
Code:
skype:
http://mystatus.skype.com/<balloon,bigclassic,smallclassic,smallicon,mediumicon>/<SkypeName>

ICQ:
http://status.icq.com/online.gif?icq=<Number>&img=<1-10>

Yahoo
http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=<YahooName>&m=g&t=<0-16>
Examples (with small version icons):

Unfortunately there is no such thing provided by MSN for the Live Messenger but there are many free service pages providing this like for example http://osi.techno-st.net/getcode.html which is based on http://www.onlinestatus.org

Hope someone can help me with this Cool
I think there was already a similar plugin for a older mybb version but only with static icons for the messenger Nickname but anyway i didnt found something for 1.4 except the great Skype Plugin Sad

Nord

Ya, just search and replace the PM Button in Post Template and include the status indicator images i've given above. But finding the correct values from the DB and replace the url and only display the images if the specific IM Profile Field is set was too much for my poor coding skills Toungue

Well if I do this, it'll be like this:
  • Icons in the user's profile
  • It will also make use of Yumi's(I think) php and template conditionals
    • Check if something is set, if not: hide it. If it is, show it in a nice organized row.

-Means only in users profile site and not under every post? Sad

-hiding if not set would be great of course!Cool

1) For now, yes - it will only be in the user's profile until I advance my MyBB coding skills.
2) Don't forget though, if I do do this - it will require you to install Yumi's PHP and template conditionals plugin
