Nominated for MOTM May 2016 BE SURE TO CAST YOUR VOTE!

If this wins, it means it has more interest than I thought. I will put it on high priority =)

Information:
Shows thread starter avatars on thread listings. If your avatars are stored in the database (which vBulletin does by default) this will not add any additional queries, if you have moved your avatars into your file system this will add an additional query for fetching each avatar. Barely any hit to page load though =). Does not remove anything from your template, but does add icons for new post, hot thread, and closed thread that overlap the avatar in a stylish way.

Features:
- thread starter avatar
- hot thread icon
- new thread icon (that links to new post)
- locked thread icon

Planned:
- show last poster avatar as a mini icon on top of thread starter avatar (this will add queries though)
- options to enable disable things
- options for positions

Preview:

Avatars in the database with page load time:

Avatars in the Filesystem with page load time:

and just to be thorough, plugin disabled with page load time:
hardly even a hit =)

You can detect if the avatars are in the file system with:


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

This will be an integer value of 1 if the file system is being used, and an integer value of 0 if the database is being used.

yeah but how does that help lol, say i were to use for the img src

that would work by itself, without a query. but that _1 at the end is the revision number, so I would need something like $thread[postuseridAvatarRev] where the 1 is, and i dont see any way of doing this without creating queries.

I guess for now i can combine it into one product using, ill just inform that if your avatars on your file system it will create a query for avatar loaded.

it doesnt even touch the page load whether you have the additional queries or not though (at least from what Ive seen). all the queries mean, is it's asking the database for more information. on some products, queries matter, but from the testing ive put on my crappy little server sitting next to me i have not noticed any stress at all =) and its just a little ubuntu server i made from old pc parts, so if your site is on a real server youll have no issues =)

found a good article, but this may have to wait =)

Yes I agree this Mod is insignificant as a bloat producer or performance negative. It doesn't hurt page load or performance at all. The only thing it really does is add the kb of the avatar image files, but these are small and not a significant source of bloat either.

I only mentioned the Datastore as a possible solution for some of the coding issues you're getting. But really, you're doing just fine the way it is.

Can we get this for search.php now too?
