  • Can members reserve avatars?

    Is there any way to reserve avatars?

    What I mean is I have only local avatars enabled (members cannot upload or link). Whenever a member chooses an avatar, that avatar remains available for anyone to choose again. Is there any way for an avatar to become "reserved" once someone chooses it, so we don't have 12 members "looking" the same?

    Thanks

    That's a kinda good idea.
    Although it might get nasty when you have too many users and too little avatars.

      I'm thinking I'll do this until I get over 200-300 members, then I'll open the doors to uploads and links. Doesn't look like that will happen for some time though

        I changed the code a bit, here it is.

        In member.php, replace this code:
        Code:
            eval("\$avatarlist .= \"".gettemplate("modifyavatarbit_taken")."\";");
        with this:
        Code:
            if ($istaken=$DB_site->query_first("SELECT userid FROM user WHERE avatarid='$avatarid'")) {
              eval("\$avatarlist .= \"".gettemplate("modifyavatarbit_taken")."\";");
            } else {
              eval("\$avatarlist .= \"".gettemplate("modifyavatarbit")."\";");
            }
        Now create a new template, name it modifyavatarbit_taken, and use this:
        Code:
        	<td bgcolor="{firstaltcolor}" valign="bottom" align="center"><normalfont>
        	Taken! <img src="$avatar[avatarpath]">
        	<br>$avatar[title]</normalfont></td>
        That's it.

          Will give it a try, thanks

          P.S. May be a good "On/Off" option for a future release ..... maybe?

            Great idea, but it's not working for me. When I tried this all the avatars were unavailable - they wouldn't even show up to say that they are reserved. What am I doing wrong?

                Ok, thanks. I'll try it again in a second. When you say create a new template do you mean to click on the "add" button or the "add template set" button?

                  The 'Add' button.

                    Right now I'm getting somewhere. Is it necessary to add this template into each different style or can I just add it to the default style for it to take effect regardless of which style people are using?

                      Add the template to each and every template set.

                          Do you mind posting a screen shot or something like that?
                          I'm interested...

                            I will do as soon as I re-install the hack (I've just upgraded my VB). Will this code still work in VB 2.2?

                              It seems to work fine with the latest version. Here's the pic I promised you...
