Digital Point Thread Avatars

Developer Last Online: May 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.x.x Rating: (44 votes - 4.93 average) Installs: 336
Released: 06 Oct 2011 Last Update: 10 Oct 2011 Downloads: 2008
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files  

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to maintain and support this add-on in two locations. The newest version (and support) can always be found here: https://marketplace.digitalpoint.com...atars.886/item

About
This changes thread icons to be the avatar of the thread starter. It applies to thread listings on forumdisplay, search results and subscribed threads in the UserCP.

Installation
  • Upload the cssrollup_digitalpoint_threadavatars.xml file to includes/xml (this is really only needed if you store CSS as files in the file system)
  • Install the product-dp_thread_avatars.xml product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Add/Import Product

Notes
  • Icons are cropped (but never stretched) to be square for display.
  • Threads with no new posts have the avatar slightly greyed out.
  • Locked threads will have a lock image overlayed.
  • Soft-deleted threads will have a red X image overlayed.
  • If the user posted in the thread, they will see a mini version of their avatar overlayed.
  • If a thread is "hot", the shadow of the icon will change color.
  • ZERO SQL queries are added.
  • Overlay images are encoded as CSS data (no extra HTTP requests needed for images or the CSS files themselves).
  • If your site uses pre-defined avatars, they are not scaled down for use as the icon since vBulletin does not store the dimensions (instead, the upper/left potion is cropped for the icon).

Settings
  • You can disable the mini-avatars under AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> Forum Display Options (forumdisplay) -> Highlight Threads in Which User Has Posted
  • You can disable the hot thread highlight under AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> Forum Display Options (forumdisplay) -> Hot Threads Enabled
  • You can change the color of the hot thread shadow under AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> StyleVars -> dpta_shadow_hot_color
  • You can change the size of the avatar under AdminCP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> StyleVars -> threadbit_iconsize (since they are square, it keys only on width)
  • If your site uses pre-defined avatars, you should use the AdminCP -> Settings -> Options -> User Picture Options -> Site Uses Pre-Defined Avatars option

Screenshots


Advanced
  • If you want to add your own mini-icon overlays, you can utilize the $template_hook['thread_avatars'] variable to do so.
  • If you want to selectively disable thread avatars, you can set the $show['hide_thread_avatars'] to true. This would allow you to create a custom profile field for users and set the $show['hide_thread_avatars'] based on the user's setting. Alternately you could enable the addon for certain usergroups or just for specific styles.

The same exact thing happened in one of my forums. The solution is easy, just remove Thread Avatars and then reinstall it.

Yes, completely remove the product: Plugins & Products -> Manage Products -> Uninstall (Digital Point Thread Avatars)

Then reinstall Digital Point Thread Avatars by transfering the files via FTP and enabling the plugin in the Vbulletin Plugin & Products System.

Both activity and side blocks avatars are ok with 4.2.1 in my forums. Have you tried reinstalling the plugin?

- Make sure you upload the" cssrollup_digitalpoint_threadavatars.xml" file to includes>>xml folder

- Then go to AdminCP -> Maintenance -> Update Counters -> click "Compile Thread Avatar Templates"

BTW, your forum theme is amazing, very clean and comfortable for eyes.

Thanks @sadiq6210 but that didn't solve the issue unfortunately. Same results.

Thanks for the compliment too

I disabled "Highlight Threads in Which User Has Posted" but the original status icons show underlayed the avatar icons.

Edit #2: fixed by enlarging avatar size, thanks
