Different Avatar from Facebook

Different Avatar from Facebook

FYI, I wanted to search the forum but it told me that "new avatar" and "new jomsocial avatar" were too common to search...

First off, I love it! I have a site using Jomsocial and want to get this installed asap. My question is this:

Can users opt for a different profile pic/avatar than from facebook? My site is a rugby social network, and many people would like a profile pic of them playing rugby, but would not necessarily want this as their facebook profile. A perfect example would be for a female player. She would want her facebook profile pic to be a pretty picture of her, but might want her pic on my site to be an intense photo of her in action on the field.

I definitely want it to import the avatar from facebook to start out with, but to be able to toggle it to remain independent from facebook from then on. Any ideas? Thanks for the good work!

Re: Different Avatar from Facebook

JFBConnect only imports the Facebook profile picture at first.  After the initial registration, the two profile pics are independent, so your users would be able to update their JomSocial (or Facebook) picture at anytime without affecting the other sites picture.

There is no way to import a different picture from Facebook as the profile picture, if that's what you were asking for though.

If you use our extensions, please consider leaving a rating and review at the Joomla! Extension Directory:

Re: Different Avatar from Facebook

Great response time! I was holding my breath the whole time and only passed out once  current/big_smile

That answered my question exactly, I think it was on the Jomsocial forum that I got confused and thought it automatically updated it. It is just the login module that always shows your facebook profile, not your profile itself. My only other question was on fixing the mapping/merging issue that is so gracefully done by joomunity for users who first created an account the normal way. Your method (clicking the facebook connect button while logged in), will work juuust fine for me.

Consider it signed, sealed, and delivered. I am buying this first thing in the morning!
