How do I allow users to post images under their user name? #81798

On various boards, including this one, I see that Moderators and some users have graphics under their user names (far left in the forums next to posts they've made).

How do you enable this feature and how do you choose which users get to post images? If I want registered users or just moderators to have a user uploaded/defined image, how do I do this with UBB?

Thanks!

Just to point something out..

The images you notice under our names here were added using the "Custom Title" feature in UBB6.1 (and the equivalent feature in OpenTopic for this particular board).

So if you visit ubbcentral.com, you'll notice it is an unhacked UBB but those images still appear.

If you want the users to have a choice, you have to (for now) implement an avatar hack.

Where can I find this feature in 6.1.03? Yes, I've looked. <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

CP -> View/Edit Member Records -> Search for the member.

Click on their name. There should be a custom title field.

What are the specs for adding images to that custom title? I added the path to a JPEG image but it displayed the URL instead of the image.

Use standard HTML - the full <IMG ..> tag and it should work fine.

The one drawback about adding them using the custom titles is you will need to add them manually for all your members. The one I linked to uses a preset list and allows them to choose as they wish <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> Either way works fine

JC, how can I get access to a preset list?

I tried the HTML..<IMG> tag and that didn't work either. I'm sure I'm probably screwing up the formating somewhat. <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

You can use JC's avatar hack to use a preset list by going here.

As far as the HTML coding to use in the custom title field, you would want to use something like this:

Brilliant!!

Thanks everyone.

As for the hack, I think I'll wait for 6.2 final before I go messing around with hacks. <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Yup, you need to edit the files and add the rest of your avatars.. <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />


Example:

<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar27.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 27
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar28.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 28
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar29.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 29
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar30.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 30
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar31.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 31
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar32.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 32
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar33.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 33
<OPTION value="$vars_config{NonCGIURL}/avatars/avatar34.gif" $user_profile[18]>Avatar 34

and so on...
