User Photo


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Just one suggestion:


If a member want to set an avatar, he has two choices:

  • Upload an image from computer to the board server
  • or Enter a URL to an online avatar image


Some board admins doesn't allow upload user photo because they doesn't have too much disc space in server, so they disable some features.

With avatar there is an option that disable image uploads to server, but as I said, you can use avatar images hosted in any free image host (tinypic, photobucket, imageshack, etc.)

Why not do the same with "User Photo"? Allow user to enter URL to an online image for use as "User Photo"?
I really would like this.


Thanks for your time =)

We opted not to allow remotely linked images to reduce XSS and CSRF vulnerability vectors. We wanted to remove the option for avatars as well, but felt it would possibly cause some headaches and drama for users who rely/use that functionality.
