HI guys

I need to know how to get an easy profile avatar inserted into an article. Some reading says that you need the easy profile content plugin and I have that installed and enabled on my site. However, when I am in an article there doesn't seem to be any button to insert a user field or custom field

Can you please tell me the steps for putting the avatar in the article

Also, I would like to insert the author's image in some other articles, not the logged in user's image, is that possilble as well

Thanks

Jacqui.

Hi,
you can write a code like this in your articles: {user avatar}, it will be replaced with the avatar of the user.

Example about our content plugin at http://docs.easy-profile.com/index.php/article/content-plugin

Hi,
there is not a shortcode that do this, anyway we provide a plugin called "Easy Profile - Author plugin", it will show the avatar near Joomla author name in Joomla articles. You can enable to show avatar from plugin options:
- Go to Extensions->Plugins
- Search for "Easy Profile - Author plugin"
- Go into plugin and enable "Show Avatar" option

In alternative you can use Joomla template override feature to put avatar wherever you prefer with PHP.

To show avatar you can use a code like this:
require_once(JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_jsn/helpers/helper.php');
$user=JsnHelper::getUser($author_id); // Replace $author_id variable with the variable that contain author ID, for example for Joomla articles should be $this->item->created_by
echo $user->getValue('avatar');

Hi,

You can put the code in template override files, for example:
- Copy file from /components/com_content/views/article/tmpl/default.php in /templates/your-theme-folder/html/com_content/article/default.php
- In the default.php (for example at the of the file) file you can use the PHP code like:
<?php 
require_once(JPATH_SITE.'/components/com_jsn/helpers/helper.php');
$user=JsnHelper::getUser($this->item->created_by);
echo $user->getField('avatar');
?>


There is not a code like {author avatar} i.s.o {user avatar}?
No sorry.
