 How to add friends / comments / posts to the profile
#
I was wondering, is it possible to add posts / friends / comments to the custom profile template? I read this in regard to adding comments but there is no information on how to add the link that actually allows members to add the comments being loaded, so I'm at a loss.

It could be my lack of JSON knowledge, but with a working template to start from I bet I could get something together.

It is only possible to add comments.

Friends and posts are not possible at this time.

Also that page is incomplete unfortunately. I will try to add to it.

Thanks for getting back to me, I'll keep that in mind when designing profiles. I know ETAs are strictly a no-no, but are friends / posts something that's coming in the near future, or are they on the back-burner right now? (Just trying to figure out if I should design place-holder areas, or cross that bridge when I come to it.)

In regard to adding the links to the comments, is that doable at the current time (and just not yet documented) or something else to watch out for?

"back burner" at the moment. those sections were always very under utilized but at the same time were the most complex to implement, as you can see the json example is quite a lot to take in, so we didn't add them all yet. there's also no way to add the different tabbed sections to view all available comments, only what is shown in the "Latest Comments" section as the wiki example shows.

The actual input box to submit a comment should be easy to add, I will try to update the wiki with that.

Makes sense, thanks for getting back to me!

In the meantime, for posts I was considering trying to do something like using an iframe that would display the relevant version of this:

CODE
https://forum.jcink.com/index.php?act=Search&nav=au&CODE=show&searchid=edf14b83d303e2c864c2bc7a7471b630&search_in=posts&result_type=posts


With something like &skinid=x at the end, to force a specific skin that would be styled specifically for this use.

But! I couldn't quite figure out how to link to something like that in the profile with the variables available, so back to the drawing table! I mean, with posts we can link to them easily at least so no biggie.

I would personally recommend trying to iframe and/or parse the content. It's a huge a hassle.
