The SocialProfile extension incorporates a social profile, user board, and basic profile info into MediaWiki, specifically avatars, befriending, foeing, user board, board blast, user levels rank system, awards and gifts.
The package also notifies users via email when other users request them as a friend or foe and/or sends them a message.
* If you use the ExtensionDistributor to download SocialProfile, make sure that you select "master (latest development version)"; older versions are guaranteed to have lots of bugs and they are unmaintained, while trunk is always up-to-date and contains the newest features and bugfixes!
avatars/ — the directory where all user-uploaded avatar images are stored
awards/ — system gift (award) and normal gift images will be stored here
Move the directory awards/ from extensions/SocialProfile into the images directory that is used in your MediaWiki installation. This directory should be writable. The images included in this folder by default can be used for awards if you upload them through Special:SystemGiftManagerLogo, but they won't show up as "defaults" the same way avatar default images do show up.
Move the directory avatars from extensions/SocialProfile into the images directory used in your MediaWiki installation. This directory should be writable.
Upgrading - If you are upgrading from SocialProfile version 1.2 or older, you'll need to create four new database tables manually: gift, system_gift, user_gift, user_system_gift. If you're upgrading from 1.3, you'll need to create user_system_messages database table.
Since r93317, SocialProfile's namespaces are automagically registered, so you do not need to add them to $wgExtraNamespaces.
SocialProfile uses either ImageMagick or PHP's built-in GD library (since r93067), depending on which one is available, for creating the resized avatar, award and gift image files.
