Set avatar/photo

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I imported a vanila 1.x DB into a 2.0.6 install, some users are asking if there's still a way to change/set their avatar. I can't find it, some I'm wondering if it even exists. I tried enabling gravatar plugin to see if that would enable something to change it to no avail.

    Hello Gillingham.

    I had the same problem and I found the solution.

    After reading the source code, I saw that GD PHP support is needed. Vanilla forums checks if this is installed, and if it is not, then the option simply does not appear.

    I solved with:
    > apt-get install php5-gd

    Or in another Linux distribution:
    > yum install php-gd

    I hope that helps you.

    Paco Hernández.
