Notifications Poplist Avatar Icon

Hi Team,

I managed to change the photo avatar img src path using public function userPhoto & userPhotoUrl. It's working ok on category & discussion list however the on the notifications & inbox poplist it's still pulling img src from the local "...uploads/userpics/..." path.

I believe the poplist is generated through global.js. Any idea on how do I hook to change it's img src?

    It is fetched with JavaScript, but you can also open the page simply by visiting /profile/notifications

    So it is the ProfileControllers notifications() method which is showing the view. Inside that method you find $activities = $this->ActivityModel->getNotifications($session->UserID, $offset, $limit)->resultArray(); and so our journey continues to the ActivityModels getNotifications() method...

    In the getNotifications() method you find the user photo mentioned:

        ['ActivityUserID', 'RegardingUserID'],
        ['Join' => ['Name', 'Photo', 'Email', 'Gender']]

    On to the UserModels joinUser() method! Searching there for the photo brings up those lines:

    if ($column == 'Photo') {
        if ($value && !isUrl($value)) {
            $value = Gdn_Upload::url(changeBasename($value, 'n%s'));
        } elseif (!$value) {
            $value = UserModel::getDefaultAvatarUrl($user);

    And then we are at the url() method of Gdn_Upload - we are there again, if I remember correctly :wink:

    Thanks for all the help. I fixed it by overriding the activity/popin.php using the helper_function I created to replace img src.
