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: 264
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.

Go to ACP -> Options -> User Pucture Options. Set rounding you need. Check with new upload. If ok - rebuild avatars in ACP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters.

Updated mod description (how to install).

1. Have you uploaded all files from ZIP or only imported XML ?
2. Move avarats to file system, don't keep those in database.

ACP -> Avatars -> User Pictures Storage Type.

I didn't checked mod with DB stirage - it's quite useless and make server load.

PS. Do the same for all.
ACP -> Attachments -> Storage type
ACP -> Groups -> Storage type

If i remember correct, that was specially hardcoded for some reasons.

Do you really have PHOTOS in non-jpeg formats? Could you describe use-case?

But this mod is for PHOTOS, and it will never handle animated gifs. That's a complex task, wich require much more coding than exists now.
