Announcing the future first public 1.0.1-DEV release. (Lite)
See first 3 posts for and screenshots
That's developmental code, to be used on test boards. Use at your own risk.
Well all of this been said, the extension installs "inactive", means you have to set first the options in ACP prior to let all of your users whithout an avatar get an Initials one by default. The ACP is self-explanatory but feel free to ask. Users got an option in UCP which allow them to do not use/have a default avatar, default is yes for all. If the user will set an own avatar the default goes automatically away, instead if the user doesn't want an avatar at all then can opt to NO in UCP.
The extension will work only if you set the Avatar phpBB's ACP facility to allow "remote avatars".
Remember, every change to the settings in ACP will force the all of the avatars to get refreshed to let your changes make effect immediately, due to the images being served server-side cached for two days.
