The title says it all..
I have noticed that the image in the top of the menu in belle/umbraco 7 is supposed to be my avatar.. however.. Im not sure where to change the image to my personal avatar (upload a new image).. is this even possible..or am I stuck with the star-faced-avatar? Please guide me to the location where I can change this..
Hi Inx,I just tried setup a test site with Umbraco 7, and the avatar image in the top of the menu is the one that you are using at the at http://www.gravatar.com. So you can change the image there.
But it will also change the image all other places where you are using Gravatar.
Keep in mind that it can some time before the image changes after you have changed it on http://www.gravatar.com (5-10 mins)
Hope this helps,
Okey, How is this synced?
Is Umbraco trying to fetch the avatar from gravatar thats associated with the currently umbraco-logged in users email?.. or how does this work?
Umbraco fetch the avatar from gravatar thats associated with the currently umbraco-logged in users email.
So if you changed the users email, it will be another image in the in the top of the menu for that user.
Who design it that way? I cannot get it.
I am not 100% sure what you mean by Who design it that way? I cannot get it. Could you be a bit more specific, then I think it easier for people to give you a good answer to this.
First - it is a CMS used for business, but anyway.. I think the avatar/client logo should be configurable in user profile like:
logo (in top , left corner): pick image...
then as extra option: or use gravatar service to provide image for you.
Additionally: on http websites image is not downloaded using HTTPS, but insecure http.
I found an answer from a very helpful person on the post below:
Just be careful because it gets a wee bit technical.
I see this is an old post. I would have to agree with LeszekP on asking "why was this designed like this?"
I'm having an issue with using Gravatar as well. Using Umbraco as a CMS in a corporate setting wordpress is blocked by the corporate firewall. Plus asking each person who would use it to set up an account with wordpress.com, just to get their picture to show up is a little far from being seemless.
It isn't going to happen as the business isn't going to allow it. Plus they wouldn't get the activation email from wordpress anyway. (its blocked)
Seems a shame that there isn't an over ride or option to upload a photo to the user profile which already exists.
Strange there isn't something already there.
I would like to replace the personal email / icon reference with a logo of the business. With the latest version of Umbraco, from Visual Studio...
Is there an API we can tap into to override this gravatar logic? The business using this site does not have a single email address that represents a gravatar icon. I would prefer to upload or call the business logo icon and place it there instead.
Or what folders / files must we modify to replace that avatar with a static jpg icon?
Many thanks in advance!
I support above point. Would like to be able to upload an avatar/user-image in the user profile.
with Umbraco 7.7 you can change and upload an image in the User Management section
you go to the user, and on the right hand side you get
and you can change the picture.
