Join The Security Response Team

Security is our lifeAre you as concerned about security as we are?

One of our basic, most fundamental, priorities is security - we strive to do everything we can to provide you with a website you know will stand up to the various attempts at hacking, phishing and privacy invasion. Here in the US, very large and well-known companies are facing some serious fallout because of network and data breaches. We are looking for some vigilant people to help alert us to any potential vulnerabilities or exploits and to help us respond as quickly as possible. keep reading ...


Adding user avatar in User Menu block

The "classic" User Menu in left or right side is just for show links. But if you like get some candy in your theme, as show user information in a central page position or with more importance try these changes:

Edit the file /modules/system/blocks/systemblocks.php and around line 184 just add:

$block['user_avatar'] = ICMS_UPLOAD_URL . '/' . icms::$user->getVar('user_avatar'); 

You have now a new smarty var.


Then edit in your theme the file system_block_user.html (if you use a custom template set use the Control Panel). Add the new var and play with HTML and CSS.

Example: userblock.jpg
