I just deployed 3.2 to our dev test area, and just learned about the sadness that is removing Avatars. I understand the logic and support it even however, this has crippled us in an area.
We have custom badges we make for our forum members that are 200x330. We used avatars for this, and people love them and have grown very adapted to them.
However, in 3.2 it forces a crop down to a square image, that is so small this badge is unusable for its purpose. Is there a way that we can add in settings to control where images are forced to be cropped? IE during forum postings it isn't cropped? Or disable it all together?
Until some type of solution can be developed, I am afraid we will be unable to use 3.2, it is that important to our community =(
Currently done in IP.C, we do not use the IP.Content DB as we migrated this system over from another software and had mysql in place. So done using the typical IPB Abstraction. The entire back-end is administrated through IP.C as well.
IP.C is like a huge bucket of legos, sky is the limit, but you have to have a vision and know what you are doing.
Currently when you have a database record post, it only posts the content field. Which makes sense I suppose however, I have a database I am trying to setup that is going to have multiple content fields the way I want it.
Is there a way to instead of just having the ability to set it up for a Database globally I can set up content marking on a field basis?
Or perhaps a way to modify the forum posting procedure?
As well, the ability to have it post the name of the fields in the topic would be useful.
A field named "Name"
A field named "Age"
The forum post would put out a topic with the chosen indexer
