This is how you can make the account box stand out on your network, change alerts to comments. Use this code.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
x$("a.xg_sprite-alert").attr("href", "http://"+top.location.host+"/profiles/comment/list?attachedToType=User&attachedTo=" + ning.CurrentProfile.id).html("Comments");
});
</script>

Here is the code if you want to add extra links before the default account links.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
// Insert content in Account Module
x$("div#xg_module_account ul").prepend('<li><a href="/profiles">Profile</a></li>');
x$("#xg_module_account").after('<div align="center" class="xg_module"></div>');
});
</script>

Here is the code if you want to add a link after the default account links.

<script type="text/javascript">
x$(document).ready(function() {
// Insert content in Account Module
x$("div#xg_module_account ul").append('<li><a href="/chat">Live Chat</a></li>');
x$("#xg_module_account").after('<div align="center" class="xg_module"></div>');
});
</script>

  • This goes in your custom code / analytics area of the network.

    • Alerts are never used, to be honest, they are app alerts and no activity ever happens in them, ever. They are a waste of space and to utilize that space a little easier, members comments should be put in place so that it is a useful feature.

  • Cool code!  Where's you get it from? Just wondering :-)

    • <script type="text/javascript">x$(document).ready(function() {x$("a.xg_sprite-alert").attr("href", "http://"+top.location.host+"/profiles/comment/list?attachedToType=User&attachedTo="+ning.CurrentProfile.id).html("Comments");});

        • That is what I just posted in the main thread.

    • You gave it to me some time ago.

  • This kind of code's been floating around for years. :-)  This is from 2010...

    I have no idea who thought of it first, but its a cool tip and I'm glad to see it coming around once again.

    Best wishes!

    • I knew I saw this before! Was trying to trace it down. It is a handy piece of code for sure.

      • I googled the key part of the code and there's only 10 results on Google.  It shows dates when it was mentioned too. :-)

        But yeah, Alerts don't seem to be too helpful and its nice to have a link to your own Comment Wall right in your Account module.  So I hope this cool tip helps some people.

        Best wishes and a happy weekend to all!

    • F Y I members can still access their alerts by going to their inbox and choosing alerts from the links in there.
