Hi there.

Is this extension still supported in 3.2.8?

I uploaded the files to /ext and it's not displaying in the Extensions Manager.

Cheers,

Mack

In that case you probably didn't upload it correctly.

Your file path should be ./ext/ger/avatarresize/*. In that folder you should see several files and folder, among which a composer.json file.
My extensions:
Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2

Like my work? Buy me a coffee to keep it coming. :ugeek:

You mean animated gifs? Yeah, I can imagine that won't work.

This extension uses ImageMagick for image resizing. That can be made to work with GIFs but it requires some extra steps: https://askubuntu.com/questions/257831/ ... magemagick

However, it looks like the extension utilises phpBB's existing functions for ImageMagick, so any changes to resize animated GIFs would need to be made to phpBB core, not the extension. Does ImageMagick manage to successfully create animated thumbnails for animated GIF attachments? If not, the problem is with phpBBB and the solution is therefore to submit a ticket on area51.

This extension uses ImageMagick for image resizing.
Support for ImageMagick has been dropped since phpBB 3.2.4-rc1. [ticket/security/227].

It uses GD actually.

Thank you for the correction! I was looking at the code for an older version of the extension. :oops:

Is there already an extension for this that works on PHPBB 3.3?
