Installing ScriptTechs Staff Widget for SocialEngine

edited September 2017 in ScriptTechs Official Products

Note that the only place to get our #SocialEngine plugin, Staff Widget, is at the SocialEngine Marketplace. It is a free download. If you find it anyplace else, that would be an illegal copy and could contain back doors and malware. Why get an illegal copy when you can get the original free?

Our basic installation instructions should get you started. After you have the plugin installed, here's how to configure it to show:

  • Navigate to Appearance > Layout Editor
  • You'll need to manually place it on the pages you want it. Our demo has it on the member browse page in two blocks - one normal and one tabbed to show it can work with two user groups.
  • On the right, under Available Blocks, scroll down to Widgets and find ScriptTechs Staff.
  • Drag it to the left and place it under or above all of the green blocks that are already there. Click Edit and set the settings as you want them (screenshot below) and Save Changes.
    Staff Admin Block

  • Note that you do need to know the member level ID that you want to show. Here's a tutorial for member levels.
    Set Settings

  • Check front end and it will show where you placed it.

  • You can make a tabbed block instead and put two or more of this widget in it. Then, choose a different member level ID to show in each one and a different title.
    The screenshot below shows two blocks. One standard staff block and one tabbed with two staff widgets in it, set for two different member levels.
    Staff Blocks

  • “Save Changes” when done in the popup edit screen.

  • “Save Changes” again at the Layout Editor screen or your new settings won’t take effect.

You can use this for any member levels, not just staff so it's quite versatile.
You choose how many members show in the block.
You could earn from this by setting the block to show a premium member group that you set up with the SocialEngine subscription feature.

If you like this freebie, please rate it on our marketplace and on the SE marketplace.
