    So this can't be installed without installing another add-on?

    It's basically the thread author template modification, modified some more. Just open it up and take what you need.

    I make all my Template Modification resources as Addons now to encourage installation of the TMS system.

    I do it to reduce the chance of noobs jacking up their templates. This way they don't touch them at all.

    If you consider yourself an experienced xenforo user, then you should be able to just take what you need from the file.

    1. Right-click on XML file.

    2. Examine the file (it's really small), copy-n-paste to the right template. That goes for all my TMS Modifications.

    That's a mistake. Sorry. I forgot to update the old version before I uploaded it after testing. I'll re-upload.

    I'll also upload an optional version for moderators and administrators to use only but I'm going to have to change it from Contact Details to Personal Details.

    Good. I'll give it another try once you've uploaded in latest version for admin/mods only.

    Both the original file with the bug fix and a separate file for BigK's version are included. Everyone ignore BigK's because I did something hackish.

    For The Admin and Mod's Only Version

    You must move the custom user field for googleplus and googleauthor from Contact Details to Personal Details.

    WARNING If you already have custom user fields for Personal Details then they will no longer be shown to regular members.

    I don't see my avatar when I search a thread but it works in Google's Structured Data Testing Tool: http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets

    If this works for you please post a link to your thread so we can see your google profile show up in Google Search.

    Eric Schmidt confirms Google+ content is given search priority

    Excerpts from Google boss Eric Schmidt’s new book, ‘The New Digital Age’, have confirmed that Google + is acting an identity verification network – with such material being given priority in search rankings.

    The admission comes amidst an increasingly bitter battle for supremacy between the likes of Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook with Google conducting a no holds barred fight for the top slot.

    Published by the Wall Street Journal the critical extract reads: “Within search results, information tied to verified online profiles will be ranked higher than content without such verification, which will result in most users naturally clicking on the top (verified) results. The true cost of remaining anonymous, then, might be irrelevance.”

    Waindigo mentioned in the reviews wondering why this resource doesn't have much downloads.

    I think it doesn't have much downloads because Google Authorship requires a recognizable headshot. Some people are shy.

    How can I remove:

    Those fields are not included in this resource. Those are fields from my own site.
