Choosing wether or not to display avatars

Post by Soldatay on January 26th 2011, 9:59 pm

Hi Guys,

Is there anyway we can give the users the option to wether or not avatars are displayed
For e.g. a option under profile that says "Display avatars" yes/no

Thanks
Soldatay

Sorry no, there is no option to allow or disallow the viewing of avatars for your users.

You can do that yourself in the admin panel by going to User & Groups // Search user // Click the user // Go all the way down till you see Display Avatar // No // Save

Well, I've searched for an answer to this same question, and decided rather than creating a new thread (and taking up more space Smile ) that I'll bump this.

I understand the option is currently not available, and the only thing to do is basically either remove avatars altogether or create a list of acceptable avatars. That can be a bit difficult IMO because I have members from many different backgrounds and a few different countries, and I'd like to allow them to use avatars to express themselves (appropriately), but maintain a forum that's SFW (as it's a car forum).

Just brain storming I suppose, is it possible that perhaps the forumotion staff could add a "view avatars" to forum permissions? I think it'd work well to create an open group for members who want to hide avatars to join, which would disallow them from viewing avatars until they left the group again.

That, or of course the simple option being added to a user's preferences "view other's avatars".

-Thanks for considering.

No, you can not as both myself and a previous post pointed out. I was asking if it were possible that this option could be implemented by the forumotion staff.

Then don't post in the Support Forum. Razz This implies that you need help (or "Support"). Post in the Suggestions section instead.

Thank you for your suggestion. I will wait until a forumotion staff member comes along and helps me with my question.
