This does work in GARS. I use it now. I used this add on here by The Geek with this hack.

Template Add-on (http://www.thevbgeek.com/showthread.php?t=2055)

If you use this hack with the Template Add on then just have the template add on call this template:


Of course that is after you install the hack below. :)

I have wanted this hack for a while now. I decided to try and make it. So I did. Here it is.

What this hack does:
This hack allows users to place a donate link in their postbit. If your users release hacks or graphics for FREE for others to use then this is for them. The user can enter their paypal email in the userCP under profile. They can also select if they are paypal verified or not. If they select yes they are paypal verified then a link will show up so other users can verify it before making donations to them.

New Templates:1
New user fields: 2
Template edits: 2
Time to install: 1-3 minutes
Images to upload: 2

You can edit the link titles to your likes and you can change the currency to your preference in the adminCP> vboptions.

I have added some screen shots for you to see what it does.

Also the links have the nofollow tag and open in a new window.

I hope this comes in handy for your forum.

This looks pretty slick, but I have a question. Can this be turned on and off for particular users, or by user group? Or is it just up to a user to put in the info, and then it comes up for them? Obviously there aren't a ton of users on the site that would be able to participate, but for those that contribute I would think it would be pretty powerful, and really help motivate people to add meaningful content.
