Profile picture



  • Hi, I tried to set a profile picture but I couldn't, the only options are Garavatar and Default icon, but now the profile picture of others also appear for me differently and they are shown Default icon!

    @Rela
    Hello,
    This seems to be recent addition to the forum. I had a gravatar set up and my profile picture was reset and I had to go and manually select gravatar again. If you're asking about uploading your own picture to the forum, I think this is currently unsupported.

    Kind regards.

    Well, you definitely can upload your own picture, I did it some time ago and the "Change Picture" menu from the Profile / Edit allows you to choose between:

    1. Default Icon
    2. Gravatar
    3. Uploaded Picture

    I can choose only between 1 and 2, no upload.

    That's kind of strange... Maybe a bug?

    Or a feature? :)

    @JohanSolo
    New feature that came with the upgrade.
    Uploading stuff seems to give funny results for now (works for some and not for others), so it's set off. In general gravatar has been the main option for us for a long time, so we prefer that.

    The really funny thing is that changing the profile picture for me did not work on Linux+FF44 but did on Win7+FF44 :)
    After changing it on Win from Gravatar to DefaultIcon I also saw it on my Linux box, but when going to the Profile page it changed back to Gravatar

    @the_
    that makes no sense at all...
    So it might be a windows issue too. Usually FF hides the underlying OS quite well. Need to investigate with a bunch of browsers.



  • @tekojo
    Yes makes no sense for me too. Will try with other browsers on both systems as soon as i have some more time available



  • I, too, have that problem. I use a Windows 7 x64 machine and the Google Chrome browser. I surf wherever I like using that browser. I think the issue ( not having an upload option) belongs to the website. :-(

    @tomy looks like it is the site.

    Upload of images is turned off for now. We have to look at what is causing this and then see if fixing in this version makes sense, or do we wait for the 1.0 upgrade (which fixes a few other minor issues we have too)



  • @tekojo
    Yes, and apparently we have no other choices except for waiting. :-(
    Thanks for clarifying the issue. :-)


  • administrators

    @tomy you can use gravatar to get your image here, assuming you are ok with gravatar. Otherwise it means you need to wait for now.



  • Hi everybody and thanks for your patience with the issues after the upgrade.

    Like @tekojo said, the uploads are disabled now. The forum is currently hosted in Heroku where you don't have any persistent storage for uploads. And the only thing needing that storage would be profile/header images. An option would be to host all the assets in cloud (like Amazon S3), but that would need some extra work to implement that integration. So the simplest solution was to force users to use Gravatar (which many users already did before the upgrade).

    If you had uploaded a profile image before the upgrade, the option "uploaded picture" appeared in avatar settings. But after changing the option to Gravatar, that option should disappear.

    So Gravatar is the current way to go and I don't think that is going to change any time soon. If you have any issues with using the Gravatar-option, please let us know.

    - Olli



  • i am facing the same problem cannot change picture using Uc Browser ( love this browser because of its speed :) )



  • Have you read the topic, at least the last post?
