Code: Select all

$max_width = $board_config['avatar_max_width'];
list($width, $height, $type, $attr) = getimagesize($postrow[$i]['user_avatar']);
if($width < $max_width) {
   $max_width = $width;
$diff = $width / $max_width;
$max_height = $height / $diff;
I tried doing this on my board, but it came up with a permissions error, saying it couldn't access the images, or something like that... which I'm assuming is because of the firewalls I've got on the freehost I'm using... it prevented me from using the ezBoard=>phpBB converter and the SpellingCow Spell Checker as well, so i'm not surprised. I suggest someone else try it and see if they also get permission errors.
PHP getimagesize() documentation

Working fine for me :D

where do you put this code?

I love this mod but my user complain about their small avatars being stretched.

I managed to get it to work through trial and error but removed it since it slowed down my pages from loading a lot.

Users will have to cope with their small avatars being stretched because this mod is the best one i found to shrink big avatars so far.

It works at 2.0.19? Not at mine... and I don't know if I'm doing something wrong... if anybody knows about a MOD (for the avatar resize) that works on 2.0.19... :roll:

Won't work on my clean install of 2.0.19, and I've cleaned the SQL tables as well so that nothing is in the database tables from earlier versions of the board. Sigh. If I install it, once I get to thread level it throws up errors like this, but sometimes naming different files:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /cavaliertalk.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php on line 506

I've tried installing it three times. :cry:

8O I think you're right, I've seen this before on my own forum. It didn't occur to me that it might have to do with my mod, because I've got so many mods installed. I don't know how to solve this right now, but when I or someone else rewrites this mod the way discussed above, it might help.

Has it been "re-written" yet?
