Title: Social networking links broken
Post by: Spasmod on June 20, 2013, 10:29:07 am
Hey CreateAforum

Social networking URL's in member profiles are broken.

When clicking the link instead of

Code: [Select]
http://www.youtube.com/user/xxx

The forum tries to send users to

Code: [Select]
http://www.youtube.com/http://www.youtube.com/user/xxx

Same with Facebook, Twitter etc

Thsi problem is for all user including my own profile (Admin)

It use to work fine but now it's broken and no changes have been made to the profiles.

I just tried on this forum works ok for me.

For youtube just put your username in the field
The same goes for all the other social networking sites as well.

Okay I figured it out.

Thanks for trying to help.

To use a facebook username first you have to claim one for your page  http://www.facebook.com/username

Otherwise you must use your default username which is some random text and numbers until you claim your own.

After claiming a username Now it's working thanks
