CoalaWeb Flair is a Joomla extension that lets you display your flair from several Stack Exchange sites individually or combined into one.
Before we get onto setting up the extension first lets have a look at how to retrieve your profile ID numbers.
To use the combined option you will need your Combined Account ID so log into one of your StackExchange accounts and in your profile area click the Network Profile link in the top right. [Figure 1]
Next select Flair from the bottom right menu. [Figure 2]
Inside the code snippet at the bottom under the sentence.
Simply copy and paste the below HTML snippet wherever you want to show off your combined Stack Exchange flair:
You will find your ID directly after users in the stackexchange.com link. [Figure 3]
You need the user ID for each of the individual accounts that you want to list in CoalaWeb Flair. To find out what these are log into StackExchange then go to the profile page of the account you wish to add and the user ID can be found in the top right hand corner. [Figure 4]
Your second option is click flair from the menu at the top of your profile information. [Figure 5]
Inside the first code snippet at the bottom under the sentence.
Simply copy and paste the below HTML snippet wherever you want to show off your Ask Ubuntu flair:
You will find your ID directly after users in the currentprofile.com link. [Figure 6]
In this section you can choose whether you want the module to display your combined flair or your individual accounts separately. If you choose the combined option you will need to enter your combined profile ID and your combined profile name in this section. [Figure 7]
If you chose Individual from the General Settings section you will now need to choose which StackExchange sites you wish to display and enter their relevant details. To make the module configuration more streamlined I have broken the accounts up into alphabetically ordered sections. For this example we will look at setting up three account under the letter A. [Figure 8]
You have four options:
- Whether to display a particular account
- The individual account profile ID
- The individual account profile name
- The theme to be used when displaying the account's flair
These settings are the same fo each of the individual profiles so once you have entered all the information for the accounts you wish to display move onto the next section.
The CoalaWeb Flair module also has a few what I consider Advanced Options such as the option to assign a unique module ID to stop conflicts, a module class suffix or weather to use cache including the cache time. There is also an option to turn off the module css if you want to add your own styling. [Figure 9]
