    It's definitely a good thing but I checked my profile and it looks like I had previously setup twitter. I'm curious if there's anything new or if it's promoting social networking, which is good regardless.

    Hi sheldon,

    You need to add "http://twitter.com/" before your username for it to work properly =). That was my mistake before too :P

    Definitely good to know you need to include the URL. Not a problem but since the formatting is the same for all twitter accounts, etc., it would be simpler if people could just enter their account names for all social networking sites and BBOS would automatically add the formatting... or add the formatting if it's not already there.

    This is something we may do in the future. But the mod we use would need to be edited for that to happen and we don't have the time at the moment to look into those changes. For now we'll have to use full twitter link. We have it specifying for Twitter link and not just username so that users don't get confused.

    Keep in mind, you may have to delete text in field, save, and then enter in new text, and save.

    Update: Now enter username only for Social Network profile links

    Hey folks, as per the suggestion of BBOS member Sheldon in post #12 above, you now only have to enter your username into each profile field for your Social Network Links to work!

    Before you had to enter in the full URL, but that's not the case anymore. However, this means that if you have already entered in a link, you will have to go back and edit the field with only your username or the link will not work.

    To do this is easy. Simply click on "Settings" in the top right header bar of the site. Then in the left hand sidebar of the next page, under "My Settings" click on "Edit Profile." Now scroll down toward the bottom of the page and you will see all the text fields where you can edit all of your Social Network links. I posted a screenshot below of how I entered my social usernames, so you can see how it should be done. Any questions, let me know.
