Update: There is now a plugin that does this. Also check out the Vanillicon indenticon plugin.

Hi Guys,

Just want to share with you on how i did the display of user thumbnails, who commented on each discussion title (in forum's frontpage), see demo here => http://www.pinoyau.info

There's still no plugin for this so, this guide is just a workaround.

affected files are the ff:

1. /applications/vanilla/views/discussions/helper_functions.php

Add the bold ones in the line: (note: pls correct the syntax of div tags (meaning remove the spaces on < / div > < div )

< div class="ItemContent Discussion">< div style="float:left;margin-right:10px;margin-top:5px;"><?php echo UserPhoto(is_null($Last->UserID)?$First:$Last); ?>< / div >< div >

And this line From:

$Sender->FireEvent('DiscussionMeta');
?>
< / div >
< / div >
< div style="clear:both">< /div>

< / div>


2. /plugins/Gravatar/default.php

Add is_null from the condition line: if ($User->Photo == '' && property_exists($Object, $Email)|| is_null($User->Photo)) {


3. /applications/vanilla/models/class.discussionmodel.php

Add the "->Select('lcu.Photo', '', 'LastPhoto')" in public function DiscussionSummaryQuery($AdditionalFields = array()) { after this line:

->Select('lcu.Name', '', 'LastName')
->Select('lcu.Photo', '', 'LastPhoto')
