I'm not sure if I'm alone on this but the login box really do much so I wanted to start a thread about how we can improve the template.

I am using the VB plugin and the latest version of VIVVO

How can I add the avatar of the user?

Why does this fail when you add it to the login template? What I am trying to do is instead of show "LOGIN" show at least the user name of the user


<vte:if test="!{CURRENT_USER}">
<vte:value select="{LNG_USER_LOGIN}" />
<vte:else>
<vte:value select="{CURRENT_USER.get_name}" />
</vte:if>


It's almost like I can't reTest the page?

I think in order to show Vivvo users' avatars (without integration) you can add <vte:if test="{user.picture}">
<img src="{user.get_picture_href|'summary_medium'}" alt="image" />
</vte:if>

If you want the user name to be clickable...

<a href="{user.get_href}"><vte:value select="{user.get_name}" /></a>

It will take you to the user's Vivvo profile. Remember to backup your files before messing with them.

I'm mentioning about the development of user system from the release of vivvo 4 :) it can be more and more usable. for example users can add avatars, they can change their passwords and they can have a user panel on th site :)

Yeah, Vivvo could use some featured found in *ahem* Subdreamer *ahem*. SD has outstanding forum integration and user system. The user system for Vivvo could use a little revamping... I'll mess around with see if I can make a mod. If you make a stable UCP (mod) for Vivvo the PM me! lol:D

This is planned for 4.1 version, in couple of months.
