    Feel free to post here any ideas that might be useful or interesting to implement into CD Avatar Bubble. I will read everything, then discuss and implement.

    I will post anything I think of over the next week. I just implemented it on my site and I love it.

    Thank you for this cool little plugin! Here’s my idea:
    When I eventually get around to launching my site ;-) I’ll be using s2member to allow for various subscription plans with additional features/capabilities. It would be very cool if the Avatar Bubble could fetch the membership label from s2member and display an icon associated with the appropriate level. Or, even better, add an icon overlay to the avatar itself.

    s2member customization is progressing by leaps and bounds and the next release will allow for custom variables. Brajesh over at BuddyDev.com will be working on tying it in to his Gallery plugin next week. There’s a great thread on the progress being made here: http://buddydev.com/forums/topic/subscriber-upload-space-for-bp-gallery

    Thanks again!

    Thank YOU for using my plugin :)
    Unfortunately that topic is closed, so I can’t read the thread…
    As I understood you want to tie CD Avatar Bubble and s2member. Well, it’s rather personal project but I will think what could be done.

    Oops… sorry. I forgot the thread is in the members’ section of BuddyDev ;-)

    Thanks for thinking about this :-)

    Your plugin works very well with Custom Profile Filters for BuddyPress. Using a bit of code from Profile Filters, Avatar Bubble field values in each bubble become clickable search terms enabling site users to instantly find members with similar interests. Great for inspiring the creation of groups, friendship connections, etc. Let’s see if I can post the code here (it replaces line 17 in personalajax.php):

    $output .= '

    ' . $field_value . '

    ';

    This is a SUPERB plugin!

    Just 1 question and 1 feature request!

    What impact on the DB does this have if any? Just thinking of performance.

    Secondly – can we have more color options for the bubble. My site needs grey so green and blue don’t fit in too well.

    This aside, this really is a stunning feature. I love it!

    @rossagrant,
    Thank you :)
    1) This plugin makes 1 DB query each time you load admin page and uses WP+BP classes and functions (and no extra DB queries) to get data from DB while making ajax calls, so performance is high ;)
    2) Yes – you can! I will add grey, black, red or some else in next release.

    Nice plugin, I’m having a css issue though. Think you need to add no padding & no border on images in the css so it overwrites theme css for the popup. See sidebar on http://american-idol-updates.com

    Also, would be great to see it working on Group avatars.

    Still playing with your plugin and noticed you’re using images for the borders & rounded corners. Have you tried the following css3 properties? They make borders a lot more customizable (but, of course, IE still has trouble keeping up with the rest of the world).

    -moz-border-radius
    -webkit-border-radius
    https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/-moz-border-radius

    -moz-box-shadow
    -webkit-box-shadow

    Of course I know those rules and use them on my site (http://cosydale.com).
    I use images to work corners in IE. Perhaps, I will add a choose option in next release.
    Stay tuned!

    Thank you about Groups avatars bubble. I will think further. CSS – your site is broken now and I can’t see what you are talking about…

    Is it possible to have a ‘add as friend’ button in the pop up bubble ?

    I’m running WPMU 2.9.2 and the latest BP version but I get an error hovering over a member’s avatar. It says “..Could not retrieve details for userid….please try again”.

    @thekmen, ok I see what you are talking about. A little bit surpsied, will test on my installations of Malleable theme.

    Yes, it is. But do you REALLY want it right there?

    @thekmen,
    Done – that’s your theme css rules (tr|td and some others), declared in style.css. In next release I will try to reset all themes rules that may apply to a bubble.
