    Cameoooooo

    I looked into this a little more. The way GC looks a a person profile is not by name. It assigns a serious of muners to each user. Here is what a link to my profile looks like. As you can see there is a serious of number at the end of the link.
    http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?g...8-5031e72dc43d

    In a way it is just like out web site. As you can see the link to my profile on our site loks like this.
    http://www.geocachingmaine.org/forum/member.php?u=1

    I think I could fix it so that a user could get their numbers and we could get it to work. But this would be to much of a pain in the butt to try and explain to users how to do all this.

    Default Linking to a user profile on geocaching.com

    You can also link to a users profile using their caching name and a different parameter. For example:
    http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u=cache+maine or http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u=kayakerinme or even http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u=blazing+trolls
    Plus signs replace any spaces and it does not appear to be case sensitive.

    Is spell check disabled on this website? If not then, Rick would you use it please.

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    I had no idea you could do that! Thanks!

    Wow. I did not know this either. I just tried a couple of thing and could not get it to work.

    Maybe you can help me out. I will explain what I am trying to do to get it working.

    The GC user name is stored in a field on the web site and to pull that field up this is the line I have to use:
    Code:
     
    <if condition="$post['field9']"><div>GC.com name:<b> $post[field9]</b></div></if>
    I tried something like this but it will not work. I thin is is because I have to many " in the statement:
    I could get ride of the IF statements if I have to. But I tried that and it still does not work.

    Try one of these two guesses:

    Code:
    <if condition="$post['field9']"><div>GC.com name: <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u="$post['field9']"><b>$post[field9]</b></a></div></if>
    Code:
    <if condition="$post['field9']"><div>GC.com name: <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u="$post[field9]"><b>$post[field9]</b></a></div></if>
    One has single quotes around field9 in the href tag and the other one doesn't. Again, just a guess.

    As you can see if your still online. It works but it is not pulling the user name into the hyperthread.

    Oh wait you will have to go into the other "Postbit Template Selection" mode.

    Go to http://www.geocachingmaine.org/forum...do=editprofile and scroll all the way to the bottom and change it to "Horizontal Postbit". That is the teplate I am testign the code one. Sorry,

    Sorry, I had an extra quote. Try one of these:

    Code:
    <if condition="$post['field9']"><div>GC.com name: <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u=$post['field9']"><b>$post[field9]</b></a></div></if>
    Code:
    <if condition="$post['field9']"><div>GC.com name: <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?u=$post[field9]"><b>$post[field9]</b></a></div></if>

    The link seems to be appearing and working with the Vertical (Legacy) option.
