[2.0.20] Avatar Check

Post by Extensions Robot » Sun Apr 16, 2006 7:18 pm

MOD Name: Avatar Check
Author: Kieran007
MOD Description: This MOD checks the URL of users external avatars to see if they can be loaded. If the server is down or the image doesn't exist, then a "default" avatar is loaded in its place. This prevents slow loading of forum pages when user(s) avatar(s) don't load, as well as dead image icons.


MOD Version: 1.0.0

This MOD has only been tested by the phpBB MOD Team with the phpBB version in the topic title. It may not work in any other versions of phpBB.

Can this "default" avatar be made to be no avatar at all?

Yes, but you will need to make the following code changes after installing the mod:-

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
# 
viewtopic.php
#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
#
     					$poster_avatar = ( $board_config['allow_avatar_remote'] ) ? '<img src="' . $phpbb_root_path . $images['default_offsite_avatar'] . '" alt="" border="0" />' : '';
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
#
     					$poster_avatar = ( $board_config['allow_avatar_remote'] ) ? '' : '';
# 
#-----[ OPEN ]--------------------------------------------- 
# 
includes/usercp_viewprofile.php
#
#-----[ FIND ]---------------------------------------------
#
     				$avatar_img = ( $board_config['allow_avatar_remote'] ) ? '<img src="' . $phpbb_root_path . $images['default_offsite_avatar'] . '" alt="" border="0" />' : '';
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]---------------------------------------------
#
     				$avatar_img = ( $board_config['allow_avatar_remote'] ) ? '' : '';
# 
#-----[ SAVE/CLOSE ALL FILES ]------------------------------------------ 
# 
That should do the job for you :)

Oh that is awesome... I wonder if this could work with the "default avatar" MOD.. I guess I'll find out in a few days. :)

It *should* do. My mod only checks the avatar at the point of loading a remote image, so as long as the default avatar mod you describe is concerned with a default local image, then the mods should run in tandem :)

That's awesome, dude. Now all I need to do is find one that does the same for signatures. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* :wink:

Looking at the way bbcode is applied to posts and sigs, it would appear that code in signatures are in fact handled separately to the img code in posts, so such a mod may well be possible. I will certainly look into it.

Kieran007,

The mod works great! No more nagging about slow board :)

I had to uninstall the Fast resize avatar mod to install yours, now I'm trying to combine both but I don't seem to manage that. :(

Do you see any solution to combine both mods?

Thx,

Nic

Question.. if it works with the default avatar mod..

If a users avatar brakes.. a default avatar is displayed right?

It that from this mod? or the one from the default avatar mod?

I'd like to use this and like.. if a user just hasn't selected an avatar.. the default avatar mod displays a "No avatar selected" image..

But from this, is a users linked avatar is broken.. then have another one displayed saying just that..

would that be doable with this?

You can try the Remote Avatar Check Mod.. it's what my board uses and it works fantastic.

Does it also change the dimensions of the avatar? And how do I combine both modifications? I think they're both changing some lines.

It would be great if the board checks the presence of the remote avatar and then resizes it as mentioned in the ACP.

Grtz,

Nic

I will investigate this. Without having yet consulted the code I would expect that the line(s it changes are the same ones I changed to deal with the remote avatar. You may find however that the code that deals with the resize or accessing the resize method you can just add inside my if-statement after adding my mod. I will check it out though and get back to you :)

This is correct.

When a link to an external avatar breaks, it is the default avatar from this mod that is displayed.

By combining the two mods, as far as I know, this is what happens. There have been reports that they work together, so all should work as expected. Best way is to back up files that will be changed and try it and see :)
