Solved New default avatar not being pushed to all profiles

Post by Bearmageddon January 2nd 2020, 5:55 pm

Hi all,

I've just recently taken over administration of our phpbb3 forumotion site. Previously, our default avatars were linked to an image that no longer exists on that domain, so anyone without a custom avatar received a broken imagelink in its place. (it has been this way for at least a year)

I've since created a new default avatar from scratch, uploaded to imgur, pasted the direct imagelink in the 'Default Avatar' section, and it has worked with about half the members while the other half retain the old avatar for some reason. I have switched the Default Avatar between multiple different images and even removed it altogether but still the same accounts are stuck with the old, broken avatar. So far I've just been manually going to those profiles and checking the box at the bottom to delete said avatar, and then the new default avatar successfully takes its place. We do have nearly 3,000 members however so this isn't a very feasible solution.

Does anyone know what the problem here might be and/or how to solve it? Worst case, is there a way to administrate multiple users at once? Rather than opening each profile individually, scrolling down, checking the 'delete avatar' box and saving, rinse and repeat, is there a way to select numerous accounts at once and perform one administration action across all of them?


- Also a side question I thought of while typing this, unrelated but I didn't feel it needed its own post as it's probably common knowledge. When in a profile within the administration panel, the email address is partially censored, and while I swear I was able to see it uncensored previously, is there a way to make this readable for the sake of people who tell me "hey I forgot my login email"? We have longstanding (several years) members who return after a long break and don't remember which email they used. I noticed I can see the email of all our top posters and those who have recently signed up, but when I manually go to their page, it's again censored.
- Will create a new thread for this, apologies.

Thanks in advance!

Some new relevant information:

All new profiles created since the push have taken on the new Default Avatar.

Sorting by Join Date revealed that it pushed to about 16% of our members before stopping. On the memberlist, when sorted by Join Date: Ascending, the new default avatar pushed to number 395 (profile u457) on the list, 396 and 397 have custom avatars, and 398 (profile u460) is the first to not have the new default avatar.

399 (u461) and 400 (u462), as you can see above, also retained the old avatar. Every single page after that - if it's not a custom avatar, if I didn't manually update it, and if they haven't newly signed up, it's nothing but broken avatars, as shown below:

I believe old accounts will not be affected by the changed default avatar.

It's actually the other way around, the first several hundred accounts created on our site back in 2015 were the only ones that changed. Similarly, when I removed the default avatar and they all returned to the forumotion silhouette, all those same ones changed but the newer profiles did not.

So for example, the 4th account ever created on our site 5 years ago automatically updated to the new default avatar I uploaded yesterday. The 1,532nd account made in 2017, however, will not automatically update. All affected profiles that will not update automatically - when I go to their profile in the AP and manually delete the old and broken avatar link, they begin updating as they should once again.

The URL that the old avatars were linked to is:
https://www.taylorswift.com/themes/master/img/default_avatar.jpg

I have no idea why the previous administration used that but the new one is one that I made from scratch and is currently hosted via Imgur.

Does the 2017 account have the default avatar?  I mean did the member upload one.

Just the default one. All members who have their own custom selected avatar still retain that avatar.

Profile #4 never uploaded a custom avatar so they received the default avatar set by the founder (https://www.taylorswift.com/themes/master/img/default_avatar.jpg). The host removed this image so I changed the default avatar (https://i.imgur.com/YYxUiq0.jpg) and their avatar changed to the new default avatar.

Profile #1,532 also never uploaded a custom avatar so they received the default avatar set by the founder (https://www.taylorswift.com/themes/master/img/default_avatar.jpg) as well. I changed the default avatar (https://i.imgur.com/YYxUiq0.jpg) and their avatar did not change to the new one.

Any custom avatars are set as normal and can continue to be changed normally.

This seems like a bug in forumotion's software. For now, you can add this javascript code on all pages to replace the old avatars with the new ones:
Code:
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", ()=>{
document.querySelectorAll("[src='http://taylorswift.com/themes/master/img/default_avatar.jpg']").forEach(e=>e.setAttribute("src", "https://i.imgur.com/YYxUiq0.jpg"));
})

While I'd hoped to solve it more permanently, that Javascript worked beautifully in the meantime! Thanks Occultist! I love you

No problem! You can deactivate the javascript code from time to time to see if maybe forumotion fixed the issue. Either case, glad I could help!

I have even gone as far now as deleting the profiles around where the issue began, hoping there was a glitch with one of those profiles (invalid character in username or similar perhaps?) that was preventing the new avatar from being pushed beyond (because it seems to have updated u1, then u2, u3, etc. and stopped around u460).

After removing the default avatar, deleting the profiles in question, re-synchronizing, clearing cache/cookies, re-uploading the new avatar, re-synchronizing again, and waiting, it still isn't being pushed any further. So pages 21-142 of our memberlist (when sorting by join date -> ascending) currently have the broken avatar if I haven't manually deleted it from their profile or if they haven't uploaded a custom avatar.

No problem! I'll use the Javascript resolution above temporarily.

And yes, that is the correct address Smile

Is it possible for me to be notified when it's been fixed? Or will I need to periodically disable Javascript to check? I assume this thread will likely be archived.

Thanks!

You can replace the script with this one, which adds a red border to the avatars it replaces, but only to the user with an id of 1. You can change that in:
Code:
userdata.user_id===1
.
Code:
document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", ()=>{
document.querySelectorAll("[src='http://taylorswift.com/themes/master/img/default_avatar.jpg']").forEach(e=>{
e.setAttribute("src", "https://i.imgur.com/YYxUiq0.jpg");
if(userdata.user_id===1) e.style.border="4px solid red";
})

Alas, this one doesn't seem to be working, no longer replaces the avatars Sad

Edit: Got it working, just had to fuss with the userdata variable

Code:
if(_userdata["user_id"]===1526)
did the trick, thanks again for the script Occultist! Very Happy
