Not Supported Template Edits  

Okay, I searched all over for this and finally found something that works for 3.0.7 in a post, to help those who don't look outside the Mod Forums for answers I am going to post it here.

I did not code it or figure it out, all credit goes to Gellpak in this post. Gellpak, if you want to post this as your hack, PM me and I'll pull it.

Place this at the end of phpinclude_start:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then place the $welcome_avatar variable anywhere you want the avatar to show up.

I corrected his code a bit for people who do not have avatars.

Check the URL and file name for whatever image you use for those without an avatar.

Also, if you use vBadvanced and want this on the main page somewhere add welcome_avatar to the variable list in vBa CMPS Default Settings in the AdminCP.

I wanted to have the avatar in the navbar because it adds a little color.

Guess it's all about how you want things to look.

Didn't mean to step on yours, just was in a hurry to get what I wanted done and I don't know enough to port yours like you did.

I can't get this working on my vbadvanced page. I've added the necessary info to php_includestart but the path is wrong for vbadvanced...the link for vbadvanced is http://www.tek-wiz.com/image.php?u=1...ine=1120950416


It needs to be forums/images.php?u........etc etc for vbadvanced

I have full paths in my settings for vbadvanced so I can't understand what's not working exactly...I have the $welcome_avatar variable as part of the welcome hack and it works when the navbar is showing the forums but it seems $avatarurl is not getting populated with the info. Any ideas?

Nevermind, I fixed it by grabbing this code from the show avatar in any template hack:

<a href="profile.php?do=editavatar"><img src="http://www.fullurltosite.com/forums/image.php?u=$bbuserinfo[userid]&amp;dateline=$avatar[dateline]" title="$bbuserinfo[username]'s Avatar" alt="Avatar" border="0" /></a>

Instead of $welcome_avatar as it would only work on the forums page. THANK YOU!


EDIT: Ok I spoke too soon, the avatars work for me and guest. But if you are registered it only shows an avatar on the forum page...it seems the dateline info isn't getting to vbadvanced. Any help is greatly appreciated with this, this is my suspect navbar template because it seems to be conditional:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Like I say the funny thing is that the first conditional seems to work but for me as admin only, any other registered users don't even see a red x empty pic block, it just doesn't even populate the table....I'm stumped..my permissions are ok as far as I can tell.

So guest avatars IE no avatar and not logged in = OK
Admin avatar = ok
Logged in but no avatar selected = OK on forum only
Logged in avatar selected = OK on forum only. :ermm:


FIXED: I had the code that's supposed to be in php includes start in global.php from the welcome panel hack, removing it from global.php let it work all nicey nicey!! THANKS AGAIN!!!

That's why I just hunted this thing down. Thanks.

I know I am way late on this... I am using this on 3.0.8 and it works fine.
My question, is there a way to resize the avatar from it's set size only when specifying $welcome_avatar? This way that avatar can be made smaller and still leave the avatar in the postbit it's regular size.

Yes?

This is a cool idea... BUT... it might be useful to me if I could output a users avatar next to their comments in Wordpress. I've already integrated WP/vBulletin Bridge and all of my comments are now linked to the forums as well as show below my articles.

Unfortunately I haven't found a way to script pulling the users vBulletin avatar to an external page. Any suggestions?
