Installing ScriptTechs Feature Member Widget for SocialEngine

Note that the only place to get our #SocialEngine plugin,
Feature Member 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.
  • On the right, under Available Blocks, scroll down to Widgets and find ScriptTechs Feature Member.
  • 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.

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

  • If you want to translate the title and description, you'll need to add a phrase for each.
    Add Phrases for Featured Member Block

  • Check front end and it will show where you placed it.
    The screenshot below shows two blocks with different titles. Each has a different member and description as well.

  • “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 more than one widget so it's quite versatile.
You can add the phrases for the Title and Description as both use the phrase system. This works well for multi-lingual sites.
You could earn from this charging members for featured or sponsored status.

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