As much as I love LiveFyre, there’s one thing about it that annoyed me: There was no access to my LiveFyre profile through the plugin.

Oh sure, there’s a “Livefyre” option in the comments, but when you click on it (And all your comments are already exported,) all you see is this:

Looks like you’re all set…start using LiveFyre!

So LiveFyre has this entire blank page that does nothing (At least on the front side.) I decided to change that.

I now have my LiveFyre setting display my account page for the system, allowing me to check my comments and my profile from within my WordPress blog. As a courtesy to LiveFyre and all its fans, I will teach you how I did this.

Please Note: This involves doing some light PHP editing. While the dangers of doing this are minimal if you follow my instructions to the letter, it may damage the plugin or your blog. LiveFyre and I take no responsibility for your code editing or following this modificiation.

For doing this, you’ll need an FTP Program and a text editor capable of displaying how many lines are in a file. I personally suggest the free & open-source Notepad++.¬†

First, Connect to your server via FTP and browse to the LiveFyre plugin, located in the WP-content/plugins folder.

Then, download and edit the "options.php" file in the plugin folder.

Scroll down to line 159, where it says this:

$printthis = "It looks like you're done...start using livefyre!"; // . $result['body'];

Replace that line with this one:

Once finished, save the file and re-upload it to your server.
