Avatars handles profile images of wiki users. If a user does not upload a profile image, an automatically generated avatar is used instead.
Usage / features
This extension adds an option to each user's page to change the profile image. At the top of their user page, users can see their current profile image with a menu option to change the image. Users have several options for setting a profile image:
- upload a new image
- use an image that is already on the wiki or an image from the web (through URL)
- generate a new avatar
In the configuration, an administrator can choose from two types of avatars:
- InstantAvatar - random, the image contains initials of the user's name.
- Identicon - not random, the image is based on the user's IP address.
Avatars requires BlueSpice Foundation.
