Summary0023315: displaying/configuring avatars
Description

Hello,

Is it possible to have an avatar (either local or Gravatar-based) be displayed next to the reporter and assignee on the View Issues page? Similarly, can the avatar be displayed on the User Information page (shown after clicking on the link for an enabled user)?

If using local images for avatars, is it possible to allow any given user to set his/her avatar in the user preferences?

For context, we are looking to potentially use the avatars as a means of showing the availability of a given user. As opposed to an out-of-office-like email reply, the vision is a binary avatar (e.g., a check mark like my current one on MantisBT vs. a red 'x') that shows visually whether a user is available to respond to a bug. Like setting up an out-of-office auto reply, it would be incumbent on the user to set the avatar to represent his/her unavailability before being out of office.

Please note if anything is unclear, and re-categorize as is appropriate.

Thanks,
Ryan.

Considering how many HTTP requests this would generate to get the avatars, I'm not sure this is such a good idea.

Similarly, can the avatar be displayed on the User Information page (shown after clicking on the link for an enabled user)?

Thanks for the feedback.

The use of local avatars would not lead to so many HTTP info fetch requests, correct? Would it be feasible then to display local avatars next to assignees?

The provided link ultimately references the following conversation:

https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/pull/573#event-1025671898

Is the noted view_user_page.php patch under consideration for inclusion in the core config? Is there a way for admins to turn on the feature in MantisCore version 2.5.1? Would this only work for gravatar-based avatars, or could local avatars work for this, as wel?

Thanks again,
Ryan.

Is the noted view_user_page.php patch under consideration for inclusion in the core config?

It would certainly be considered, if the code were targeted / mergeable into current master branch (IIRC it was submitted for 1.2, that's probably why the PR was closed without being merged).

Is there a way for admins to turn on the feature in MantisCore version 2.5.1?

You can always customize the code if you want to (at your own risk).

Would this only work for gravatar-based avatars, or could local avatars work for this, as wel?

I believe this code was introduced before the Avatar plugins allowing local avatars, so it probably can't but I didn't check.

For the record, I also had a work-in-progress, 1.3-based branch to address this and other issues (https://github.com/dregad/mantisbt/tree/avatar) but it was left aside due to the release of 2.0 and the introduction of new Avatar plugins.
