Profile Photo
#1
Can someone create or possibly point me in the direction for creating a photo field in the profile?

I'm creating an website for professionals in a particular industry and I would like to modify the profile to look like a business card type of thing. I would like to allow the person to upload a photo to be placed in their profile. Any ideas on how to go about doing this?

can't you use the avatar? I mean if people are willing to put their face in their profile...they can use the avatar-field for that purpose just as well...it's not like it's securely hidden in their profile or anything?

I anticipated a post or two along these lines. Rolleyes

I didn't want to use their avatar. Maybe they don't want to look at their own mug everytime they post.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.

I created a plugin like this for the next version of my website http://www.msgweb.nl, you can find a preview here. It's not fully automated though, the templates required are not included in the plugin. Tell me whether you are interested.

Sorry I didn't reply, I've been busy setting up the next version of my website...

I'd like to make this plugin fully automatically, but as I said there will be some manual changes needed for now. Anyway, if you can code a bit, you should be able to use it on your forums. I attached the main plugin, and will list some other changes which will be needed here:

Make a file 'photo.php' in your main forums folder:
<?php
        if(@mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "")){
            mysql_select_db("forum");
        	$res = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM mybb_photos WHERE uid='".intval($_GET['uid'])."'") or die(mysql_error());
        	$photo = mysql_fetch_assoc($res);
        	if($photo['photo'])
        	{
                $photo['photo'] = stripslashes($photo['photo']);
        		header("Content-Type: " . $photo['type']);
        		header("Content-Length: " . strlen($photo['photo']));
        		echo $photo['photo'];
        	}
            mysql_close();
        }
?>

You need to edit the usercpnav template to add a link 'edit photo' which links to usercp.php?action=photo
And you of course need to add a place on the profile, $photo will contain the photo data ('<img src=.....' etc), and $lang->photo_title 'photo of ....'.

Hope you can install it, otherwise just ask Smile

Fantastico! Thanks, homie.

I'll let you know how it goes. I wish I had something to offer in return, in terms of modifications, but... I'm not as proficient in coding as you may be. I can tweak somethings here and there.

I modded the portal to serve as an article management system. http://www.iprosnetwork.com/forums/articles.php Toungue That's about it.

Anyways, thanks again. Big Grin

Playing with it now...

stupid question #1... can you give me an idea of how the template should look for "edit photo"?

stupid question #2... any SQL queries need to be done? (i.e. creating mybb_photos table)

stupid question #3... any other files need to be changed?

... more stupid questions to come. Rolleyes

Thanks in advance. Big Grin
