BlueSpiceAvatars handles profile images of wiki users. Initially, every user has an automatically generated avatar.

This extension adds an option to each user's page to change his profile image. At the top of a user's page users can see their current profile image and the link "Userimage". Clicking on this link opens a dialog offering several options for setting a profile image:

  • upload a new image
  • link to an image that has already been uploaded
  • generate a new avatar
