Overview:

This product simply allows you to select usergroups which will be required to define an avatar before being allowed to browse the forums. For affected users, an error message will be displayed with a link to define an avatar.

If you require users to define an avatar regardless of the number of posts they have made, they will see the following:



If you have given your affected users "grace posts", then once they have made that number of posts, the will see something like:



The phrases for the error messages are found here:



Updates:

At the suggestion of Stratis (who has always been a great supporter of my mods), I have made the following updates:

Version 1.1:
  • Added a setting that allows you to give affected users a set number of "grace posts" that they can make before being required to define an avatar.

Version 1.2:
  • Changed execution order of main plugin so it executes before "Force Users to Read a Thread" product.
  • Added setting to allow for chosen scripts to be excluded from the actions of this product.

Version 1.3:
  • Added setting to allow excluding Tapatalk users from the product.

Compatibility:

Tested and working on VB 4.2.x and may work on all 4.x versions of vBulletin.

Backup/Warning:

This product does not alter your database, however it is always good practice to make regular backups and you should make a backup before installing ANY new mod.

As always, products are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. I will provide support and do my best to help but no absolute guarantee is offered.

  3. Click on "Choose File" and browse to the product .xml file that was packaged in the .zip file.
  4. Click "Import."
  5. You MUST enable the product in the settings before it will function.
  6. Configure the remaining settings to your liking. Each setting has a detailed explanation of its use.

What do you mean by "If I press in tabs I have for forums?"

On Navbar I have buttons from the basic forum categories. So when they press it they redirect to the specific forum, all threads there.... images are missing as I describe in previous message.

Okay, just so I'm clear on what's happening...

You have a test account without an avatar, and using this account you see the error message stating an avatar must be defined.

Instead of following the link given in the error message to the UserCP to define an avatar, you click a navtab which directs you to one of your forums.

You are taken to the forum, and images that should display, do not.

Is that correct?

Yes that is correct, actually I have seen some users in who is "on line" that they was surfing in forums with out putting an avatar, good thing is that they cannot read threads because they get the error again. So this made me to login with test user to see when they get the error and accidently I saw this issue .


Ok its not a big deal, but thought just to tell you.

Okay, remove forumdisplay from that list, and the issue should be resolved.

Yes it will, actually I put forumdisplay for one reason.
Many members that did not log in forum after I installed modification and meet the settings, they will be forced for the avatar, they will not have a chance to see any thing else, I do not like this behavior to members that they come back to forum after 8 months and up


Any way I will see if I delete that script or let it as it is.


Thanks for info and conversation.

Hi Mark,
great plugin, but is there a big problem.
The users that sign up to the forum by Tapatalk (really many) cannot define the avatar inside Tapatalk becouse Tapatalk don't let you make this and them reamin blocked.
Do you know if is there a way to resolve this problem?
Maybe exluding the Tapatalk users from the plugin. Is it possible?
Thanks in advance

Please let me know if version 1.3 works correctly for you and your Tapatalk users, as I do not use Tapatalk.
