Title: Making cover photo system on user profiles
Post by: ContLock on June 02, 2018, 02:09:27 PM
I want to make cover photo for every user profile. I want to user be able to change cover photo just like avatar image.

So basically just like there is avatar image for every user and every user profile I want to make same thing duplicating and making it like cover photo.

It should be customizable also.

So question is how would you do it, how is the avatar image stored in database, is it easy and okay to duplicate avatar system and implement cover on that base?

Could you give an example? Maybe a picture of how this is supposed to look like. Is it supposed to be something like a the FB profile cover image?

This is basically a mod request, so it should be in this (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?board=79.0) section.

Short desc:

- It is in almost same as facebook cover.
- User can upload/choose from link their cover photo.
- Works same as avatar but only visible when you visit that user profile.

I'm not requesting, I want to make it myself but I ask few tips and your opinion how will it be best to make it.

I'm not a developer (at least not in PHP), so I can't really help you. Hopefully one of the coding gurus will see this and help you.
