Digital Point Thread Avatars
Mod Version: 1.0.4, by digitalpoint (Coder) digitalpoint is offline
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.

Seems to be working fine for me after upgrading to 4.1.8... Are your CSS files stored in the file system?

BTW this is what it looks like in IE with CSS Stylesheets as Files on.

Looks even worse on Google Chrome.

Uninstalled for now until dp can come up with a solution regarding this.

Its ok i figured it out, There was a another modification installed which was using the Search Results threadbits and search_results_threadbit hooks , i guess they got in the way of each other.

I wasnt using the other one in the search pages anyway so i just disabled the other mods hooks in those locations.

This fixed the product for 4.1.4 -> 4.1.8 for me.

I had to re-install this for 4.1.9

After upgrading I didn't even notice that it had stop working. There was no negative affect, which is good. I simply had import the product again, select overwrite, yes, and all was working again.

Installed and working wonderfully

Thank you Digital Point
