Unable to add an image to user profile!

Hi all,

I'm trying to add an image to the user profile but unable to display it!
I uploaded the image to the ojs root folder or into the public>journal and I used different combinations of HTML code but without success!
For example,
Code: Select all
<img src="testpicture.jpg">
<img src="http://localhost/testpicture.jpg">
<img src="testpicture.jpg" alt="testpicture" width=50 height=75>

Non of these worked!
Is there another best way?
It would be a useful feature in OJS to have the possibility to "add picture" to the member profiles.

On other hand, if there is more than one member in the journal team (i.e editorial team) and we add more details to their bio-statements, the information will be displayed heaped without any separator between the different members!
Try for example to add 3 or more editors with contact information and and see how it looks; they will appear very close each to other!
A neat or at least subtle separator (ex. line or blank space) between members will be welcome!


Thanks
Ojser

Hi Ojser,

the simplest way to add a user image is in "My profile". When you're logged in as a user, you can upload your picture there.

Greetings,
Kai

Hi Kai,

Are you sure there is a link to add an image for a user, eg. reviewer or editor?
In my OJS, I see that the image profile is only available for admin not for other members (i.e. reviewers, editors..). And even so, that image appears at the bottom of the profile page not publicly. Normally an image should appear next or near the name, not so far bottom or so far above the name.

Ah sorry, got it. I have to login as an admin, then as a user (from the admin interface), then modify my profile>add image.

Regards,
Ojser
