[SOLVED] Picture plugin?

edited September 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Dear all,

I am trying to find a way to enable images on the website, as it is done in Vanilla, but can't figure it out. I found out that the Gravatar plugin (that comes bundled with Vanilla) 'Implements Gravatar avatars for all users who have not uploaded their own custom profile picture & icon.'

The functionality that I want to enable is that to enable users to upload own custom profile picture and icon. Is this a separate plugin? And, if yes, is it released and, if yes once again, where can I get it from?

    @cdavid: Vanilla 2 has this feature built-in. Which version of Vanilla are you using?
  • Options
    2.0.6 ... When I go to my profile, on the default theme, I get this menu:
    Edit My Account Change My Password My Preferences

    while on the Vanilla website, I also get "Change My Picture".

    If I go to
    (which is the analogous link to the Vanilla installation) in my installation, I get:
    Unable to detect PHP GD installed on this system. Vanilla requires GD version 2 or better. The error occurred on or near: /var/www/v/applications/dashboard/controllers/class.profilecontroller.php Additional information for support personnel: Application: Vanilla Application Version: 2.0.6 PHP Version: 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.2 Operating System: Linux Server Software: lighttpd/1.4.26 User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.7 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/7.0.517.5 Safari/534.7 Request Uri: /v/index.php?p=/profile/picture Controller: PHP Method: Gdn_ErrorHandler

    A simple
    $ sudo apt-get install php5-gd $ sudo /etc/init.d/lighttpd restart
    did the trick afterwards.

    Thanks for the info.
