The permanent link QR-code


Well-known member
Recently QR-codes become more and more popular. Therefore why not to add in a window of a permanent link display including QR-code for it?
In general it is not difficult, though demands template modification post_permalink and adding of two phrases in language.

1. We open a template post_permalink and we search there for the following code:
        <ul class="Tabs tabs" data-panes="#IpPanes{$post.post_id} > li">
            <li><a>{xen:phrase bb_code_link_snippet}</a></li>
            <li><a>{xen:phrase html_link_code}</a></li>
We add at once under it:
            <li><a>{xen:phrase qr_code_image}</a></li>
In the same place hardly it is more low found:
        <ul id="IpPanes{$post.post_id}">
            <li><label><input type="text" dir="ltr" class="textCtrl fillSpace" id="bb_code_link_snippet" value="[URL=&quot;{xen:link full:threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}&quot;]{$thread.title}[/URL]" />
                <span class="explain">{xen:phrase bb_code_link_snippet_explain}</span></label></li>
            <li><label><input type="text" dir="ltr" class="textCtrl fillSpace" id="html_link_code" value="&lt;a href=&quot;{xen:link full:threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}&quot;&gt;{$thread.title}&lt;/a&gt;" />
                <span class="explain">{xen:phrase html_link_code_explain}</span></label></li>
We add at once under it:
            <li><label><a href="http://qrcoder.ru" target="_blank"><img src="http://qrcoder.ru/code/?{xen:urlencode {xen:link full:threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}}&4&0" width="132" height="132" border="0" title="QR код"></a>
                <span class="explain">{xen:phrase qr_code_image_explain}</span></label></li>
2. Now we will need to add two phrases (title of the tab and the description).

qr_code_image - "QR-code"
qr_code_image_explain - "The Two-dimensional code for scanning by the mobile device"

3. Result on a screenshot (in Russian, but it is not basic)

1. It can be applied and to a profile of the user, I generate vCard in the form of a QR-code. On some resources it can be very claimed.

2. qrcode.ru it is possible to replace the online generator with another, allowing to generate the codes through transmission in parameter URL.

3. Unfortunately, is not present xen:hook for an insertion of the code of the additional tab. Then it would be not necessary to correct manually a template.

Another option for an API to generate these would be:
            <li><label><img src="http://api.qrserver.com/v1/create-qr-code/?size=132x132&data={xen:urlencode {xen:link full:threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}}" border="0" title="QR Code" />
                <span class="explain">{xen:phrase qr_code_image_explain}</span></label></li>
You can specify the size in the URL or simply with the width and height img parameters.
            <li><label><img src="http://api.qrserver.com/v1/create-qr-code/?data={xen:urlencode {xen:link full:threads/post-permalink, $thread, 'post={$post}'}}" width="132" height="132" border="0" title="QR Code" />
                <span class="explain">{xen:phrase qr_code_image_explain}</span></label></li>


whats the sense of that? Sry i see them everywhere but i have no idea what the use in forums?
