Nominated for MOTM May 2016 BE SURE TO CAST YOUR VOTE!

If this wins, it means it has more interest than I thought. I will put it on high priority =)

Information:
Shows thread starter avatars on thread listings. If your avatars are stored in the database (which vBulletin does by default) this will not add any additional queries, if you have moved your avatars into your file system this will add an additional query for fetching each avatar. Barely any hit to page load though =). Does not remove anything from your template, but does add icons for new post, hot thread, and closed thread that overlap the avatar in a stylish way.

Features:
- thread starter avatar
- hot thread icon
- new thread icon (that links to new post)
- locked thread icon

Planned:
- show last poster avatar as a mini icon on top of thread starter avatar (this will add queries though)
- options to enable disable things
- options for positions

Preview:

Avatars in the database with page load time:

Avatars in the Filesystem with page load time:

and just to be thorough, plugin disabled with page load time:
hardly even a hit =)


Thanks / Credits:
To MarkFL for his constant support, and help.
To Max Taxable for finding the file system bug

If you have any ideas to add don't be shy, and share your thoughts!

i was going to remove thread status, and post icon columns and use a mini icon for every thread status (which is going to take me forever) but figured why not just release what i got now and move on to something else for now, and do an update later lol

Okay, I installed this on my vB 3.8.9 dev site, and everything works as expected. Definitely a nice improvement.

are your avatars in the database, or file system?

ah that would be why, this pulls the avatar from image.php which I believe the image has to be in the database for that.

this is the exact code for the image src

I will make a note of this in the description, and will see if I can fix it =)

I don't know if it works the same in vB 3 as in vB 4, but in vB 4, when I want to get a user's avatar from the file system, I use code in the following form:

edit: I forgot, you will likely need this before the call to the fetch_avatar_url() function:

what i ended up coming up with

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

but good news and bad news. this works but will cause an additional query per avatar on the page since it has to fetch it, with avatars in file system there is no way around this, unless...

food for thought (for me to return to lol)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

so to keep with the products title, i can not in good faith release this as an update. What i can do though is release another version altogether =) that way both sides can be happy... I hope. but its past 1 am here

heres a quick fix for now, i will release the revised version when i wake up

THIS IS ONLY FOR AVATARS IN FILESYSTEM! and was intended to fix max's issues to be good enough for now

and does not work in search results till tomorrow, only forumdisplay as im doing it as a quick fix before bed. again i will work the rest out tomorrow
