Problem: Users' age does not show up in their posts
Seeing the user's age in their posts is dependent on whether they have chosen to share their birthday. This option is found under their control panel, in their public profile.
(Path: My Fusion
>> Control Panel
>> Public Profile
If this box is checked, their birthday age will show up in all pf their posts as well as in their public profile (along with their birthdate). Unchecking this box will keep their birthday information from being shared with the rest of the membership.
Problem: Users' avatars don't show up in their posts
This option is in the Administrative permissions area. Look in the site overview for Can use Avatars
(you will need to check or uncheck this). Those users whom you want to be able to use avatars should have that permission.
In addition, if you want them to be able to use their own avatars, you must set the permissions so that the users may use avatar URLs or may upload their own from their computers. (These permissions are in the same area as the 'Can use Avatars' option.)
Problem: The avatars STILL aren't showing up
If your users' avatars aren't showing up in their posts after you've looked into the above areas, please try the following:
- In your Administrator Control Panel, under the Display option- make sure that the Hide Avatars box is unchecked.
- Make sure you have the correct path to the avatars in
Admin >> Configuration Settings >> Paths and URL.
This correct path should be something like: http:www.yourdomain.com/fusion while the directory path should be something like: /home/greg/public_html/fusionbb/images/avatars.
(Note: the first is the actual URL to your avatars and the second is the "path" to the directory that they are stored in.)
- If you allow user uploaded avatars, make sure that the directory is writable. Elsewise, the avatars won't be stored when your users try to upload one.
Should you still have problems after looking into each of these areas, please contact the FusionBB developers via the FusionBB messageboard or by submitting a ticket describing the problem(s) that you're having as well as what solutions you've tried.
Thanks to Greg, Claude, and Gregori- all members of FusionBB- for these questions and solutions!
