Feature Proposal: Configurable Signatures With Profile Pictures

Example discussion:


TWiki has a bare-bone signature for user posts.

Description and Documentation

Add nice looking signatures as shown in the support question at Support.SID-01616.

  • Define a USERSIG setting in TWikiPreferences that shows a user picture next to the user profile page link, for use in -- %USERSIG{FirstLast}% - %DATE% signatures.
  • Define a SIGNATUREFORMAT setting in TWikiPreferences, with picklist to chose from old style signature, and new -- %USERSIG{FirstLast}% - %DATE% signature.
  • Update CommentPlugin signature format to use SIGNATUREFORMAT.
  • Update edit templates to use SIGNATUREFORMAT in "Your signature to copy/paste" input field.



WhatDoesItAffect: Rendering


Setting for TWikiPreferences:

   * Set USERSIG = <span style="display: inline-block; white-space: nowrap; padding: 0 2px 0 0; border: 1px solid #e8e8eb; background-color: #f4f4fa; -moz-box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #e8e8e8; -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #e8e8e8; box-shadow: 1px 1px 2px #e8e8e8; -moz-border-radius: 3px; border-radius: 3px;"><a href='/cgi-bin/view/Main/%DEFAULT%' style="border: 0 none;"><img src="/p/pub/Main/UserProfileHeader/default-user-profile.jpg" height="18" alt="" style="border: 0 none;" /> %DEFAULT%  </a></span>


  • Peter Thoeny -- Peter
  • Hideyo Imazu -- Hideyo
  • Hideyo Imazu - 2018-03-04 -- with date
  • TWiki Guest -- TWikiGuest
  • Lee Miller -- user without profile picture
  • Non Existing User Profile Page -- non-existing user

Actual implementation is done in "user_pic" section of UserReports, then the USERSIG setting in TWikiPreferences does an INCLUDE of that section.

This is now implemented in SVN trunk. I also installed it here on TWiki.org as you can see from this signature. Enjoy! smile

Nice bubble boxes in comments is now done in SVN trunk. I updated TWiki.org as well, let's see if this works here.
