I want to be able to use my own default avatar on a custom theme, not the normal avatar that comes shipped with SMF.

this is the one I wanted to change, but only to show in a custom theme.


and use this instead


Is there an easy way to do this?

Edit that image and change the name on it and re-upload it.

But that will show on all themes, i only want it on a custom theme.

Make the custom theme and inside that you make the folder for the image, where ever that is, I think the avatars folder ? If you rename it to something else and then change change the name in the code then it will only show on the custom theme.

easiest way would be to use an integration function (hook)

so create a hooks.php file, put it inside a directory called "src" inside of your theme directory

<?php

// has to be a unique function name to avoid conflicts with other mods
// so something like authorName_themeName_something
function authorName_themeName_something($image)
{
    global 
$modSettings$settings;

    if (
$image === $modSettings['avatar_url'] . '/default.png')
    {
        
$image $settings['images_url'] . '/default_avatar.png';
    }
}

and in index.template.php of the theme, at the end of the template_init function

require_once __DIR__.'/src/hooks.php';
add_integration_function('integrate_set_avatar_data', 'authorName_themeName_something', false);

Now you just have to add inside of the images folder, an image by the name of default_avatar.png

I haven't tested any of the code however so, expect potential syntax issues.

Thanks SychO :rgton   Didn't work, knowing me I done it wrong :emb  :dontknow

This is what I added to index_template
function template_init()
{
global $settings, $txt;

/* $context, $options and $txt may be available for use, but may not be fully populated yet. */

require_once __DIR__.'/src/hooks.php';
add_integration_function('integrate_set_avatar_data', 'lesmond_christmas_default', false);

and the hooks.php I placed in a src directory
<?php

// has to be a unique function name to avoid conflicts with other mods
// so something like authorName_themeName_something
function lesmond_christmas_default($image)
{
    global 
$modSettings$settings;

    if (
$image === $modSettings['avatar_url'] . '/default.png')
    {
        
$image $settings['images_url'] . '/default_avatar.png';
    }
}

And placed the image in images directory

No errors, forums working fine too.

This is a fresh SMF 2.1 RC3 from GH if that makes any difference.

yea then I need to test it, I must be missing something in the logic there.

SychO

right, looking at the code now, it unfortunately would not work, because the smf codebase is inconsistent and does not use a single function to get the avatar, there is code repetition.

too bad, wanted to do this in my themes as well.

lesmond

No worries @SychO thanks mate  :rgton

It would only work until members changed there to own avatar anyway, would have been a nice touch.
