- Profile Picture User Plugin
This is the main plugin that allows your users to upload, remove and change their profile picture. Administrator too can manage these pictures in Joomla's Users Manager.
- Profile Picture Library
Profile Picture library provides API for third party developers to access and display users' profile picture.
Also, it would be great to have editable image size at backend.
This extension worked as expected for me and is extremely simple to implement.
This should have been a core feature of the new user profile system. I really can't for the life of me think why it wasn't part of the brief.
Lets hope third party devs pick this up and make it a standard.
My suggestion that may help improve this extension is minor. I think that it would be a good idea to have a text string in the profile page which informs the user of valid file size, dimensions and file extensions.
I haven't done much testing with different file types or sizes so I can't comment on how these are managed. I also haven't looked at any docs or readme files because thus far I haven't needed to, so that information maybe there somewhere I just missed it.
I really wanted to put a positive review up as the previous one may be putting people of experimenting with this extension.
Thanks for sharing your work.
However it didn't tell me the pic had to be a certain size. After trying to upload an image 200px x 150px I kept getting "failure invalid image file"
Once I uploaded a 640 x 400 image it loaded immediately and is visible on the Joomla backend.
However it doesn't show on the Users profile when they log in and is not retrievable by them.
Having visited the vendors site (GITHUB)information is (for me as a complete beginner ) non existent.
