Re: do I need COPPA?

COPPA is a US law not a Canadian law but with having the server hosted in the US you'd likely have your site classified as a US based website.

Re: Creating Custom Avatar Engine

OK, figured it out. Posting for the record and to help others who happen to google this posting. It turned out to be two problems. One stupid human error (that being me), the other was a diag error (again that was me but was due to the first stupid error). 1) I have two forums installed on the same ...

Re: Creating Custom Avatar Engine

ok, so I know I'm missing something. In viewtopic.php, just before $user_cache[$poster_id] = array( I did a die(print_r($row)); to see what the contents of the row are as I see it's being used here: 'avatar' => ($user->optionget('viewavatars')) ? get_user_avatar($row['user_avatar'], $row['user_avata...
