NC for Hire
[16 NOV 2012] I have updated the script to v1.1.0 , please copy and paste the new script code into your custom code. Scroll down to see whats new. This script is only compatible with Ning 2.0

 

Hello Creators,

My final exams are temporary on a break , so I have some time to work on mods for creators.

So here it is

 

Introducing QuickInfo

What it does?

When user hover over a thumbnail for example: members module thumbnails , latest activity thumbnails , comment section thumbnails, forum replies thumbnails. They can see that user's info : age , sex , location.

 

How it works?

It works by using jQuery .load() to get info from the user profile then display it out.

 

Pros & Cons:

Pros: User won't need to go to a user profile to see their info (name,age,location), some users dislikes to visit others profiles because of heavy profile customization , annoying music and so on. They just need to hover their mouse over that particular user thumbnail and it will show the info to them.

This script is lightweight : 5.91KB

Cons: It might be a bit slow loading for users who have slow connection , the loading refers to when loading up user's info. For me , I am on 180kbps connection , it takes about 1.5 sec to load the info.

 

-----NEW [ 16NOVEMBER 2012]

Now with Add As Friend and Message.

Language Customizable

Just change the qimessagetxt and qifriendtxt values.

More CSS customization

I have moved all the css from the script into the style area which you can modify easily.

 

 

Installation:

Just paste the code below into your Custom Code(My Network > Custom Code)

 

<script type="text/javascript">

var qimessagetxt = "Message";

var qifriendtxt = "Add As Friend";

</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://elsodev.com/projects/quickinfo/script.js"></script>
<style>

And that's it , once installed , head to your home page and start hovering on thumbnails!

FAQs:

1.Does the add friend link show if I'm already friends with a user I'm hovering?

Nope , QuickInfo knows whether you are friend or not friends with a user, it only display Add As Friend when you are not friends with them.

2.How add as friend works?

It brings you to that user profile page once you clicked on it and launches the Send friend request box.

3.How does Message works?

It directly takes you to Send A Message to that user page.

4.Can I put the CSS into a file?

Yes , you can , make sure you use <link href="quickinfo.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"> inside your custom code.

5.Can I put the CSS into Design Studio/Appearance?

Better not , because if you put in there , member's profile theme/css can overwrite it and cause QuickInfo style to be wiped. You can put it in deisgn studio/appearance if you disabled profile customization for your network users.

    note: if the member has no basic info(age , sex , loc) or their profile is private , QuickInfo will only show their enlarged profile photo , name with link to their profile.

  • Well done
