Someone who works for phpbb. I THINK, blakebowling is associated with them, but i could be wrong. If nobody here is associated with phpbb, then someone here would have to make contact with them.

Well here is what they had to say, i am quoting out conversation that i posted in their forums...

grifftron wrote:Hey, i am involved in the community at ConquerClub.com which is powered by phpBB

We have a suggestion page and one of the suggestions was to add avatars to wall posts on peoples profiles. I hope this is the right place to post this, we were just wondering if this was something that would be possible to do with phpBB, if not we will stop requesting it on CC.

Thanks

Marshalrusty wrote:Hello,

phpBB is opensource software, which means that the code is open for the public to use. It is therefore possible to add anything and change anything within the board. I am not entirely certain what you are asking for, but displaying avatars on a new page is not difficult to do at all.

Thanks


KEEP IN MIND THE phpBB WEBSITE DOES NOT HAVE THE SAME KIND OF WALL SET UP AS WE DO WITH WALL POSTS, WHICH IS WHY HE SAID HE WASN'T SURE WHAT I WAS ASKING FOR, BUT HE SAID IT WAS POSSIBLE...

edit: Still talking with these guys from phpBB, their "tech team" and they said adding avatars to wall posts in a 5 min job.

I don't mean to get in the middle of this (just answering the questions asked by grifftron )

TheForgivenOne wrote:One downside, is this could cause more lag when going to a persons wall.

Images are cached by browsers, so if it's the same images that are appearing next to posts on the board, your browser will not grab them again.

Having said that, there may be good reasons not to do this (such as larger avatars pushing the cell apart and making the overall page longer). Increased load is not really one of them, however.

Darwins_Bane wrote:Don't forget, I'm pretty sure the wall is generated by phpbb3, and so would be limited to whatever developments they have for it. I could be mistaken though.

Please keep in mind that phpBB is opensource, meaning that all of the code can be changed to do... anything.

Marshal you are the man! Thanks a lot for putting in all the extra work of creating an account and finding this thread... here is another quote from Marshal who is Support Team Leader over at phpBB

grifftron wrote:SO this means its possible?! and it takes 5 min to do for every ones walls? If so AWESOME... hey if you guys created a account on CC can you visit my suggestion thread and tell these guys too? If not i will quote you guys anyways...

-griff

I'd rather not get in the way of a heated battle (:P), but you're welcome to quote me.

Yes, because user details are already grabbed in order to build the wall, adding avatars is a matter of adding the avatar column to the select query and then modifying the output to include the avatar. All together a 5 minute job.


a 5 minute job for avatars on wall posts people! and if i understood Marshal correctly, this would have nothing to do with creating extra lag.

I hide avatars in the forums, so I would turn this off, but I totally understand the desire to have it, so I support this :)

Thanks jake, and there would for sure be a off / on (show/hide) button for the avatars on walls.
