Hello, this tutorial will help you add the avatar of members in the recent topics widget. This is compatible with all forum versions.

Modification of mod_recent_topics template

So, the script works without problems, you must make a small modification to the widget source. Go to Administration Panel > Display > Templates > Portal and open the template mod_recent_topics Edit

Add this to the Beginning of the template :
<div id="recentTopics">

and add this to the End of the template :

Save and publish Add


Go to Administration Panel > Modules > JavaScript codes management. Make sure JavaScript code management is enabled, then proceed to create a new script.

Title : Recent topics avatar
Placement : In all the pages
 var style = document.createElement('STYLE'), css = '.mini_ava2>img{height:20px;margin-right:5px;width:20px;}';
 style.type = 'text/css';
 if (style.styleSheet) style.styleSheet.cssText = css;
 else style.appendChild(document.createTextNode(css));
  if(!window.localStorage) return;
  // Default avatar
  var default_avatar= '';
  // Time of cache 24h*60m*60s*1000ms - one day
  var caching_time= 24*60*60*1000;
  // Time of cache in case of error 60s*1000ms - one minute
  var caching_error= 60*1000;
  var set_avatar= function(id) {
  $('.mini_ava2.member'+id).html('<img src="'+get_avatar(id)+'" />');
  var get_avatar= function(id) {
  if(localStorage.getItem('t_ava'+id) < +new Date - caching_time || (localStorage.getItem('d_ava'+id)==default_avatar && localStorage.getItem('t_ava'+id) < +new Date - caching_error))
  localStorage.setItem('d_ava'+id, default_avatar);
  $.get('/u'+id, function (d){
  localStorage.setItem('t_ava'+id,+new Date);
  localStorage.setItem('d_ava'+id, $('#profile-advanced-right .module:first div img:first,.forumline td.row1.gensmall:first > img, .frm-set.profile-view.left dd img,dl.left-box.details:first dd img, .row1 b .gen:first img, .real_avatar img',d).first().attr('src')||default_avatar);
  return localStorage.getItem('d_ava'+id);
  var to_replace= {};
  $('#recentTopics a[href^="/u"]').each(function(){
  to_replace[$(this).attr('href').substr(2)]= 1;
  $(this).before('<span class="mini_ava2 member'+$(this).attr('href').substr(2)+'"></span>');
  for(i in to_replace)

Save the script, and you now have avatars in the recent topics widget ! Very good
