I want to view group picture in messages and profile

Post by Ercan Yılın »

When I put a picture in the group, it deletes my profile avatar. I make the description of the group with pictures. But this time my group does not appear in my messages and profile. How can I put the group picture with the avatar? Or if such a thing is not possible, how can I make my group appear in the messages?

If I understand correctly you are trying to apply rank image like the one below my avatar that says "Community Team"?

Upload the image to phpbb_root/images/ranks/

Go to ACP >> User & Groups tab >> select "manage ranks" links to left.

Select a rank to edit if one already exists for group or click the "create rank" button on lower right to make a new one.

Rank name >> Should correspond with group name
Rank Image >> Select file you uploaded
Set as Special Rank >> Yes
Minimum Posts >> 0

Go to ACP >> User & Groups tab >> select "manage groups" links to left. Click settings next to group. Find the setting for "group rank" and apply the rank.

I'm not quite sure what you are doing. List it step by step.

We are confused as to whether you are asking about a Group Default Avatar or a Group Rank image. There is nothing called "Group Picture".
Avatars and Rank images are two separate things, so they both show. Here you can see both my Pink Panther avatar and my Support Team group rank image. Changing my avatar does not affect my group rank image.

I can't explain my problem. When I upload a picture to the group, a user's default group replaces an avatar. When I upload an avatar, the group avatar disappears.

If you are using a Group avatar, it will replace the user's avatar when you set that group as the user's Default Group.
The user can then change the avatar to something else, assuming they have the standard User Permission of "Can change avatar".

What can I do to make both the group picture and the avatar appear together?

yes.I want the rank image + group avatar to appear together. It appears but deletes my own personal avatar. And when I upload my personal avatar, my group avatar disappears.

Delete the group avatar, it's not used for this. Follow the directions I gave previously.

Go to ACP >> User & Groups tab >> select "manage ranks" links to left.

Select a rank to edit if one already exists for group or click the "create rank" button on lower right to make a new one.
ADDED: Just to be clear ranks are different than groups but can have same name.

Rank name >> Should correspond with group name
Rank Image >> Select file you uploaded
Set as Special Rank >> Yes
Minimum Posts >> 0
