Great extent, congratulations!

I have already installed and am testing locally .... for now did not see bugs, but a few suggestions:

1 - Notification to comments received profile.
2 - Option to respond to comments posted on the profile.
2 - Notification to add friends.
3 - Avatars members added to the friends list in the profile.

I'm really looking forward to the release profile of the cover, I was looking for an extension to this long ago.

I've added Notifications to the To-Do list.
As for commenting on the wall, I was typing that I will not be doing this, but then realised I could add a 'reply' button that will post at the Poster's wall with a quote. So, added to the To-Do list after all.
And Friends list avatars, I will not be adding as avatars simply take up too much space..

I like the idea myself too, the problem however is, it's not really possible to create a nice background-cover-photo, so I'm working on something but it's a rather dirty work around to get it fixed.

what the heck is a " background cover photo"?
that is the problem with understanding what the other poster was requesting in the other forum.
what is "cover"?

granted, I don't do social media so if this is some social media/facebook type thing that would explain why I don't understand what is being talked about here.

Yes, it's a Social Media thing I suppose. But 'cover' is an universal word..

I'll add screenshots later, but it just adds an image on the top of your profile, like a lot of sites have. Like I already mentioned, an example: like Facebook.
Here is a profile, you see the avatar (profile picture) and the redbox is the cover photo.. Everything further down is the actual profile..

Ofcourse still a work in progress, but this is how it will look in phpBB

Hope this clarifies it for you ;)

Coverphoto has been added, still in early stages so text color, etc.. might not look great.

Avatars have been added to the Friends List after all..
If no avatar, then a standard profile icon

Hello! The cover picture does not appear in the profile.

I also noticed that with the APS extension enabled in the profile, add some information such as the part where is the extent of medals "Medals System", see:

Before APS extension:

After the APS extension:

in the css file remove max-height from #coverphoto { } and add margin-bottom: 4px; instead.

What is the URL for the image you're trying to add?

Sorry, sorry. Forgot to add one line on GitHub.
If you want to change it manually:
Add 'COVERPHOTO' => $member['user_coverphoto'],
Before 'TOTAL_TOPICS' => $total_topics,
In the /ext/posey/aps/event/main_listener.php

GitHub has also been udpated with my current progress :)

Yeah that's where everything get's tricky.. It all depends on teh style and the other extensions you have installed so can't really code any sizes and stuff, preferably you would jsut replace a Template block, but that's not possible.

Change in CSS: #coverphoto { .. }
This: background-size: 100% 100%; becomes this background-size: 100%;
First value is width, second is height. If second is not set, it will default to auto.
So with your image that will work just fine.

Remember, I'm still in the very early stages of this Extension so the CSS and 'general look' of everything isn't close to proper. First get all the coding in place :).

Thanks for all the support though 8-)
