I created a solution, I hope this helps you.

You'll need PHP 5.5 in your server and PHP GD library. (Probably you have, it's very common config many wordpress theme uses PHP GD library)

Then you need to edit includes/functions_upload.php, locate a function called "move_file"

Before this function you need to add the following code:

Code: Select all

	function resize_image($file, $w, $h, $crop=FALSE)
		list($width, $height) = getimagesize($file);
		$r = $width / $height;
		if ($crop) {
			if ($width > $height) {
				$width = ceil($width-($width*abs($r-$w/$h)));
			} else {
				$height = ceil($height-($height*abs($r-$w/$h)));
			$newwidth = $w;
			$newheight = $h;
		} else {
			if ($w/$h > $r) {
				$newwidth = $h*$r;
				$newheight = $h;
			} else {
				$newheight = $w/$r;
				$newwidth = $w;
		if($this->extension == "jpg") $src = imagecreatefromjpeg($file);
		if($this->extension == "png") $src = imagecreatefrompng($file);
		$dst = imagecreatetruecolor($newwidth, $newheight);
		imagecopyresampled($dst, $src, 0, 0, 0, 0, $newwidth, $newheight, $width, $height);
		if($this->extension == "jpg") imagejpeg($dst,$file);
		if($this->extension == "png") imagepng($dst,$file);
then in the move_file function locate the following code:

switch ($upload_mode)

just before this insert this code:

Code: Select all

And that's all :)

P.D. Please if you distribute/post this solution, please just mention me, thanks.

The above code does exactly what I've needed on my forum.
So much simpler now for users to upload their avatar. Thanks!
