[Resolved] Select avatar from a list of premade suggestions

    Hello,

    I would like to offer my BP-members a selection of about 20 avatar images, from which they can select their avatar image.
    I (as the BP-admin) would upload these “avatar-suggestions”.

    I havent found anything in the BP settings. Did I miss something?
    Also in the plugin search I didnt found anything appropriate.

    Does anyone have an advice?

    Thank you!

  • Good idea, I haven’t seen a plugin that does this.

    hello,
    i would try to mix a part of the post-avatar plugin and a bit of code as explained here:
    http://hungred.com/how-to/customize-wordpress-avatar-filter-hook/
    or perhaps tweaking this plugin:

    Here a feedback:

    * I installed it successfully.
    * To upload an avatar-suggestion, there are a few steps nessasary (click Add avatar, click medialibrary, select image, click “insert into post”, select “save settings”). I tried to add multiple images add once, but it fails (after clicking “save settings”, it only applies the last selected image).

    @imath Is there an easy way to add 60 avatar-suggestions?

    You wanted to add 20 images 5 days ago. And now 60 ! 😀 Fortunately, WP 3.4.1 allows batch upload to his media library, and the plugin also.

    But to use it you have to select the batch option on the avatar upload page. Click the link in the text above the upload box “use the new upload tool” or something like this (my WP is in french sorry) You can do the same from within the media library upload if you want (batch url is your-site/wp-admin/media-new.php#)

    On click a drag’n’drop zone appears.  Now you can batch upload ! The rest of the process is unchanged, especially you will have to asign each image one by one to the plugin by clicking on “insert into post” and to save this for each.

    yeah, your right; the “20” were inaccurate, sorry :(

    Of course, i know the batch-upload to media library (i already had done this before).

    you will have to asign each image one by one to the plugin by clicking on “insert into post” and to save this for each.

    Thanks for clearify this.
    Open medialibrary-tab (loading…), browse to next image (paging…loading), collapse, insert into post (loading…), save settings (loading…) seems to be a little uncomfortable, when doing it 60 times 😉
    Maybe my host isnt the fastes one.

    But, of course, I’m very grateful to have this plugin …. thank you very much!
