Developer Last Online: Jul 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.x Rating: (8 votes - 4.38 average) Installs: 27
Released: 03 Jul 2010 Last Update: 04 Jul 2010 Downloads: 265
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code  

port of vb3 version, with mass-check feature.

This mod completely disables standard avatar functionality and generates avatars automaticaly from profile photos. That helps with 2 points:
  • "Socialize" you forum. Real visitors likes to se their faces.
  • Simplify usage. Many people don't understand, why they can upload pictures in 2 places, and what is the difference.
Also, this mod makes sexy rounded corners for avatar. It seems strange, but forum impression become much better. See attached images.

Features:
  • Automatically generates avatars from profile photos
  • Round corners for avatars
  • PNG avatar format, compatible with any skin background
  • Mass rebuild avatars via ACP
  • Mass check/remove avatars from ACP (rebuild counters)
How to install:
  • !!! ACP -> Avatars -> User Pictures Storage Type. Move to filesystem, if not.
  • Upload files from appropriate folder and import product XML
  • Go to ACP and change settings each group. Those are recommended:
    • 160х160px - profile photo size
    • 80x80 - avatar size
  • Go to ACP -> Options -> User Pucture Options. Select corner rounding you like.
  • Go to ACP -> Rebuild counders. Run "Rebuild avatars from photos"
This mod is developped here http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-photo_as_avatar . Patches are welcome.

PS. Screenshots from vb3 version, don't care.

Hello, I installed this in vB 4.2.1 and it seems to work ok, but I have to manually go to ACP> Maintenance > General Update tools > Rebuild Profile Photo Avatar Thumbnails for the avatars to show.

Is this supposed to update the avatars right after the user uploads their photo profile?

Question

Not sure if this is working correctly or not for 4.2.1

It's partially there but not formatted like in your example. There is no photo_samle.gif showing up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Just verified, this hack is NOT working on 4.2.1. Not only that but it will prevent animated avatars from working, and mess up your settings because the avatar link will no longer show up. See this thread for more information;

If you look at the last time a mod is updated you can summarize that it is not up to date. If your going to state that it does not work in the current version, it is better that you state what does not work in the current version. instead of a blanket statement (I know you tried). It is kind of given that styles might be askew in an older modification, that doesn't mean the modification does not have true value.

The gracious author clearly states that it does not work for animated avatars. You checking the modification out and giving feedback is admirable, but be careful that you are not discrediting our awesome free mod authors.

To the right person this mod is just a few simple fixes away from being very useful.

Thanks for the ear.

I had to go back and look, but you're right. Right there in post #1 he says "PNG avatar format" which any admin should know means non-animated.

Got to read these things, including the entire thread, before installing.

Files upload easy, Install no errors.
Yes profile photo is now Avatar.
Yes link to Avatar gone in settings.
Still checking it out for my needs since I do not want avatars at all unless I can control more on what uses them.
Thank you for making this mod.

Thanks for great mod.

If the following are done, it works in 4.2.5

!!! ACP -> Avatars -> User Pictures Storage Type. Move to filesystem, if not.
Upload files from appropriate folder and import product XML
Go to ACP and change settings each group. Those are recommended:
160х160px - profile photo size
80x80 - avatar size
Go to ACP -> Options -> User Pucture Options. Select corner rounding you like.
Go to ACP -> Rebuild counders. Run "Rebuild avatars from photos"
