Avatars

Nov 5, 2009 at 3:41 PM

Anyone know how to get the avatars working? I thought that we'd add something to the team member xml config file for each team member, something like:

<avatar>

   <provider>gravatar URL</provider>

   <key>gravatar hash<key>

</avatar>

but I've tried that and can't seem to get it working. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious. I'll dig around in the code a bit more and will update this if I figure it out.

Thanks

Hi pgauthier,

The usage is as follows:

<avatar provider="gravatar.com" key="user@acme.com" />

The reason for the provider and key attributes is that the avatar is an extensible provider. There is also a provider for solid color blocks out of the box, where key would be a color name, for instance.

Let me know if you have any further issues.

Thanks. Got it. It turns out that I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed. The real issue was that I'd copied the xml file to a network share and was editing that. I did not however copy the new xsd out there too....

Thanks again and many thanks for the great project and making it public.

Yeah, being able to validate against the xsd is a great help.

You're welcome! It's good to know that people are putting the tool to use and still find it useful after a few months (i.e. it passed the "oh - shinny!" stage).
