View Full Version : Avatar Phrase Missing in News Module
08-28-2008, 10:49 AM
On the front page I am displaying a particular forum for news. When I make a post it shows up along with my avatar. Mouse over on the avatar it says "UserID's" (my actual user id) What phrase is this? I would like to change it slightly by add additional wording (i.e. avatar). This is the way the default VB is worded and just wanted to make it match.

www.hostboard.com/index.php (http://www.hostboard.com/index.php) - Registration is closed as it is under development.
Mouse over the avatar. It says "Steven's" It is not using the default VB phrase so I was wondering which phrase in VBA it was using so I can add the word "avatar". Might be considred a bug based on the way I think it is behaving vs what it should be doing.

looks like it is pulling from the actual image
<img border="0" align="left" title="Steven's " src="http://www.hostboard.com/forums/avatars/steven.gif?dateline=1209875187" alt="" style="padding: 6px;"/>
you want to change the title to whatever you want

The code for that is in your 'adv_portal_newsbits' template. It has "$vbphrase[avatar]" after the username, so should say "Username's Avatar".

I can not seem to find "$vbphrase[avatar]" which would be why I am missing the "avatar" word after the user's name.

Hrmm, maybe vB's deleted that from their global phrase group. If you add the phrase to your vBa CMPS phrase group though that should take care of the problem.

Yes it looks like they did as by adding the phrase fixed it. So would this be considered a bug?

Seems to be at least in some vB versions.
