Forum "Letter Profile Photos"

Recommended Posts

You may have noticed that with our update on August 17th, the site-wide default "Profile Photo" icon was replaced with a "Letter Profile" icon/'photo' - if you do not have a Profile Image associated with your Member Profile.  

From the Invision Power Board release notes:

Quote

IPS Community Suite comes with a default profile photo which is used when members have not set a profile photo for their account. While this model has served the software well for years, we felt it was time for an update to the software to keep pace with current internet trends. This has led to one of the latest changes you can expect to see with version 4.2: letter profile photos.

We have tested many languages to ensure maximum compatibility. The font used in the image is automatically selected based upon the characters to be written to the image, so sites that have more than one language will see compatibility for all of the profile photos that are created automatically.

The colors are not set for each letter. You will notice in the screenshot that each "A" letter photo has a different color. They are chosen randomly when generated.

We hope that this change helps bring your communities to life with a little more style, flair, and uniqueness for each new user on your site.

 

You may provide your own Profile Image, as many have already done, by visiting your Member Profile and clicking on the Profile Photo to upload your photo.

My apologies if this change has led to confusion.
