Show (gr)avatar on frontpage

  • Hello,

    does anyone know how to show the gravatars of the Latest and Original poster on the front page, if so what/where would be the parameters for there dimensions of the image.

    I just need to show a 50×50 gravatar of the latest poster on the front page next to the username of the latest poster in the “Latest Poster” column of each topic.

    AND

    A 50×50 gravatar of the original poster and the username of the original poster right next to the link of the topic, on each row.

    Note: http://emptees.com/talk – has a similar thing to what i need, they have the author post avatar on there front page.

    Thanks for any help

    I would say yes it’s possible. If you have the id of the latest poster, you should be able to get their gravatar. Same with the original poster. I have no idea how to do it, but it sounds possible.

    Of course you can do it, bbPress can do almost anything – as long as you code it ;-)

    Showing the gravatar is the easy part, the code to fetch the latest poster and their email address is the tricky part. How’s your mysql?

    Showing a gravatar for any email address is as simple as:

    <img src="<?php echo "http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=".md5($user->user_email); ?>" >

    The mysql code for the email of the last poster is going to need a left join of the users table against the post table and more than I am willing to do right now. I suppose I could be lazy and use get_latest_posts(1, 1) to fetch the entire info the last post and grab the email address from there.

    I have done it look :-

    Ok guys, im loving this bbPress more and more. I hacked the bbPress_Latest_Discussion plugin to get them showing up WITH THE GRAVATARS on my wordpress frontpage.

    If anyone needs this email me, ill tell you how i did it, its a bit too long to post it here.

    Long or short, still you should write about it here so:

    1. People won’t spam your mailbox;

    2. People won’t post another topics like this thing will be here ;).

    I could use something like this for my new project.

    does anyone knows?, please.

    i would really like to know how to do this for the first and last poster in a thread. i have tried messing about and developing the above suggestions but i can’t get my queries right. can anyone help? the site above is down so i don’t think i will get a response from the user!

    Showing the gravatar for topic starter and last poster would be something like this (untested)

    Topic started by
    <?php echo "<img src='http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=".md5(bb_get_user_email($topic->topic_poster))."'> $topic->topic_poster_name"; ?>
    Last Poster
    <?php echo "<img src='http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=".md5(bb_get_user_email($topic->topic_last_poster))."'> $topic->topic_last_poster_name"; ?>

    // Custom Topic Starter Avatars
    function topic_author_avatar( $size = '48', $default = '', $post_id = 0 ) {
    if ( ! bb_get_option('avatars_show') )
    return false;

    $author_id = get_topic_author();
    if ( $link = get_user_link( $author_id ) ) {
    echo '<a href="' . attribute_escape( $link ) . '">' . bb_get_avatar( $author_id, $size, $default ) . '</a>';
    } else {
    echo bb_get_avatar( $author_id, $size, $default );
    }
    }

    I’m a newbie, so please don’t beat me into a pulp ;)

    So the code above works with BBPress RC2, etc?

    Anyone develop any sort of plugin to do this?

    Hi,

    You don’t need any plugin for doing this, check this topic http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/custom-avatar-function-broken-in-10-rc2
