    Newbie Question

      Hi,

       

      I just started messing around with Jive and was wondering if anyone could tell me or point me to a place that explains how to enable Avatars and Emoticons.

       

      Thanx

          Opie,

           

          Avatars are not currently supported in the default skin (although many people have added them to custom skins). To enable Emoticons, go the "Global Filters" admin panel and add the Emoticon filter.

           

          Regards,

          Matt

              Matt,

               

              I am using a trial version of the enterprise software for testing purposes, does the emoticon filter not appear on the trial version?

               

              Thanx

               

              PS do you have any links to tutorials where I may find a how to for the avatars?

                  The Emoticon filter should be there in the list. What version of Enterprise are you evaluating?

                   

                  In terms of the avatar support -- unfortunately, we don't any tutorials that might help you build this. However, it's fairly simple. Basically, you would store the image name as an extended user property and then display that image in the UI.
