View Full Version : The avatar hack from UBB
I run a UBB based site which gets about 500K pageviews a month (growing 20+% a month).
One of the very popular features with the registered members is the Avatar hack for UBB which allows them to select their own "personal image".
Any ideas if such a hack exists or if there is an existing similar to it on vB.
Haven't seen you around in a while.
Like what you're seeing here? No avatar hack exists (as of yet), but I'm sure it won't take long to come up with some.
lol, at the moment only one hack is in existence ;)
we need more
Yep, I really like what I see (having said that I've not seen any code yet!).
I know PHP far better than perl and this seems to fit the bill.
Is there any documentation? Even SQL table documentation would be a great start given that I cant lay my hands on the freeware version yet.
I could not edit my post even though I am logged in.
I also wanted to add that I stopped work on my WML and HDML hacks for UBB when I heard that there would be a php/mysql thingy in the offing. Would be a lot easier to do it in PHP than cryptoPerl :D
An added benefit might also be integration with a kick butt opensource / mySQL search engine like udmSearch ( http://mysearch.udm.net )
P.S. I do think I've entered the right email addy in my profile, but did not receive e-mail notification of the various replies.
P.P.S. Never mind.. I was clicking on the wrong set of icons to edit the post. :)

The only documentation I've seen thus far is the manual on the site.
I remember you saying you were better at php than perl when we were bouncing around stuff in the active topics add on :)
I was glad to see you over here and hope you jump on soon so we can get some good hacks:)
I know squat about PHP, but I understand it's a lot easier than perl.
If I were to design an avatar hack, I would want upload capabilities with size/weight limits in addition to a library of avatars, that way people could make their own or use those already there. Gonna take me a while to get that good, though...
I would love to see the avatar hack ported for PHP/MySQL.
That's one of the features my users have been requesting most.
Do I call you Mr Cold or Mr Steel? :)
I'm planning on working on it, should have it done by next week. Unfortunately most of the original code would need permission from the originator, who I will e-mail and ask before I actually begin posting/using the code.
