Avatar resize in core

Post by Ideas Bot » Fri Sep 08, 2017 5:34 pm

It would be interesting if phpbb had the resize avatars feature by default. The admin sets the maximum dimensions (in px) in the ACP and when the user enters an avatar larger than the one defined in the ACP will be resized.

I know my users find it difficult indeed to use avatars, this will make it much easier to use.

This semi-exists with just using gravatar.

I would suggest the following.
  • Pluplaod for upload which can handle resizing and EXIF client side.
  • Setting for max size of avatar only effects avatar itself because...
  • Avatar is linked to profile, use thumbnail size image on profile page.
  • Link from thumbnail on profile page to full sized image.

Some code already exists for this. It only needs to be adapted and fitted into the core I think.

Various board system already support this, so a no-brainer to add this.

I already know these tutorials, and Dion Design (for 3.2) really works. But the problem is that it is stressful to make this snippet every time you have to upgrade the forum to another version, which is why it would be cool if resizing avatars was a default feature. .
I'm sorry for my English. Google Translator does a bad job. :D
