Honoured member

Am I wrong on this?  Aren't the blog images suppose to be the member's avatar?  Don't have a sighted person to confirm this right now, but seems like I changed my wife's and my avatar and that's what is showing as the blog image on our blog post.  However, I importat my uncles website, and his blog image is the system avatar of skaters even though we've change his avatar in his profile.

I can go to the "Edit news category" and chage the image there, but when I do what size image do I need to use.  I see that the default news category images are 28x28.  Do I need to make a copy of his avatar this size and upload it through that interface?

I think if &blog=1/?blog=1 is in the URL, it shows avatars, otherwise it shows news category images.

That URL parameter essentially controls whether the "news" is being viewed as a blog or not.

Yes, you can edit the news category image. It doesn't auto-size the news category images, so you need to do that manually.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
