Is it confirmed then that this extension as it is now works on phpBB 3.3 without any changes needed?

Just need to double check.

Looking to upgrade from 3.2.8 very soon.

Cheers.

Could you help me?

I have saved this ext in this path: foroarmy.com/ext/ger/avatarresize-master. But in my forum 3.3.0 doesn't appear. So What i'm doing bad? Is there incompatible with some other extension?

Best regards.

It's always useful to read the information that comes with an extension.
readme.md states Copy the extension to phpBB/ext/ger/avatarresize
Spelling is freeware, which means you can use it for free.
On the other hand, it is not open source, which means you cannot change it or publish it in a modified form.

* @var array filedata Array containing uploaded file data
* @var \phpbb\files\filespec file Instance of filespec class
* @var string destination Destination directory where the file is going to be moved
* @var string prefix Prefix for the avatar filename
* @var array row Array with avatar row data
* @var array error Array of errors, if filled in by this event file will not be moved
* @since 3.1.6-RC1
* @changed 3.1.9-RC1 Added filedata
* @changed 3.2.3-RC1 Added file
*/
$vars = array(

You'll have to be bit more clear.
Does it appear in the extension list? If it is, what happens when you press enable (you mentioned "keep going without working" so i guess you tried to enable it).

I can confirm the extension works on 3.3.

When I first tested it, I saw errors due to the avatar size limit I had imposed (6KB). After raising this limit, I uploaded a larger file, and the extension successfully resized it with the resulting file being only 4KB.

Is there any reason we should not disable the avatar kb upload limit when this extension is active? I had originally set it so that huge avatars don't slow down page speed, but with this extension that seems like it would no longer be a valid fear?

@Ger
I noticed that many extensions remain at status "RC" for an extended period of time. This extension is one of them.
I am wondering if there is a reason and if if it could be shared here.
This extension works fine for me under phpbb328 and I've used ist since it had been published without any problems.

would it be possible to add automatic comprobation for new versions of this ext, if any day it would have any...?

It's because everytime anyone use new versions comprobation on ACP, this ext is one of those that doesn't show if there has been any new version.
So it's neccesary to come into github to ensure that there is no any new version.

Thanks in advance!

You have chosen the right approach; this extension effectively makes that setting obsolete.

Nothing in particular; however getting extensions validated takes up more time than some might expect. Validation queue of more than a month is also a bit demotivating (submit an extension, get a report back 6 weeks later, submitting a minor coding style fix, wait another 6 weeks...)

When an extension of mine is in RC status, it's gone through the automated checks and I've gotten enough community feedback.

I'm not sure what you're saying here... Usually my english isn't that bad, but even Google translate doesn't help here since it doesn't recognize some key words. Sorry.

I'm sorry about that! :oops:

I tried to explain that when I go into ACP-CUSTOMIZE-Manage Extensions y Re-Check all versions of my installed exts, Avatar Resize doesn't show if it is updated or not.
I think it's gonna be better if you can see what I mean:

Here you see all ext's version are in green color, because they are updated, but Avatar resize one doesn't turns into green (updated) or red (not updated).

So I asked if it would be possible to add that version check.

Ah, I understand now.

There simply isn't a version checker for this extension, therefore phpBB can't see if it's up to date or not.
