I want to disable the use of cover photos in my community. How can I do that?
I am looking for a setting which will disable default cover background (in profile area) in addition to "use cover photo" settings in AdminCP.
You can disable the use of cover photos for members through group permissions. I haven't looked into ACP settings much but there may be a setting to disallow access by other Admins or alternatively you can override the setting with custom code to always set it as "false"
ACP -> Members -> Groups -> Edit the group -> Social tab -> Can upload a cover photo?.
Thanks. I already know this settings. In addition to that I want to disable the default empty background area behind profile image. How can I do that?
You mean this black empty space ?
Via CSS I guess, but I really not good with it. You'll have to wait someone to help you.
Yes! exactly. There must be some settings which will disable this empty background area for those Community Administrator who do not want to make use of the cover image globally.
You can edit it with CSS to whatever color you choose. White will make it blend in with the background. I have not ran across another way
I don't think there's a setting.
The problem you will face with editing the CSS is that unless you're very clever with coding, whatever changes you make to it will apply across the board. You can't currently hope to change the background of ipsPageHead_special to transparent as the easy solution because there's a lot of heavy box-shadow in place in elProfileHeader, the absence of which would be noticed by everybody who makes use of the cover photo, and the text etc would need to be a separate colour. There's a lot more to change than just the background colour:
OK Thanks. I will give it a try using CSS...
