Hey Joe,

I just noticed that if the Avatar system set in System Settings is set for "user upload", then the image on the blog comment avatars defaults to "blank1x1.gif", it also is still wrapped in a link to gravatar.

Could you add something so that we can determine our own "anonymous" image that would show when it's set for user upload and no user image is defined? If there's no way to make it a setting, I would be happy to donate an "anonymous" image that you could set for default. Also, the link should probably be removed when gravatar isn't active.

Sorry if I just missed the functionality if you already added it.

Thanks,
-Isaac

Hi Isaac,

Sorry for the delayed response.

You can configure the default internal avatar image from theme.skin like this:

<portal:Avatar runat="server"
DefaultInternalAvatar="~/Data/SiteImages/1x1.gif"
/>

If you would like to donate a better default image that we can include that would be very appreciated since I am graphically challenged.

Best,

Joe

Hey Joe,

Sorry, this got lost in my e-mail.

Here's a basic anonymous image I made that you could use: http://i7media.net/data/sharedmedia/temp/anonymous.png

It would be helpful if this rendered both for users with undefined avatars (when using the internal avatar upload system), and for guest posters.

Thanks!

Hey Joe,

Could you make it so the "anonymous" image shows for guest posters on the forums as well?

Currently I'm using JS to detect the guest post and add a class to set it as a bg, but it would be better all around to just have the correct <img> tag there in the first place.

Thanks!
