I have setup a Flair for a Primary Group and it works great on Posts

and Profile Hovers

However if you go to the Full Profile View, the flair is not there

It also doens’t show in the Main Category View

Is there any way to show it on these places?

I agree it should show on the user page, at least @neil.


It will be! I added it now.


Alignment on mobile (Android) is way off cc: @awesomerobot

Alignment fix is set :+1:


I definitely tested on mobile and added css for it. /shrug Thanks @awesomerobot


I’m puzzled as to why flairs aren’t shown on avatars in the latest post/category view on the main page…?

They would be very tiny?

Given the avatar is the same size, I’m not sure what you’re saying. :slight_smile:

Here is one from a post, and another from the topic list.



Oh on the categories page. Yes it would fit there.


Is there somewhere else that I can upload Flairs to, other than uploading them to themes?

It feels like there’s quite a high risk that someone else removes the theme without realising the implications.

Apologies if this is mentioned in the READ ME FIRST topic but I don’t have access to that & don’t know how to run the admin wizard.

I take it you are not staff on the forum where you are setting this up? Just a group owner?

Discourse sites come with a “Assets for the site design” topic in the staff category where you can upload images. While the topic could still be deleted, it’s less likely as the topic’s sole purpose is holding such uploads. However, if you’re not staff on the forum you won’t have access to that.

Perhaps upload the assets in a PM to yourself? No one else should see the PM, and thus it shouldn’t be deleted.


I think I’m staff -

I’m pretty confused about why I don’t see that topic or any of this on our site -

but I’ll create that topic, to make sure that anyone can access the upload.

Yep, that would make you staff. Strange that you don’t see these topics in the staff category. They are deletable, so another staff member may have removed them previously. Creating a clearly titled topic in the staff category should cover your needs.


Avatar Flair Image worked with an uploaded asset (transparent png), using the asset’s full URL copied from the upload list in a custom component at Admin > Customize > Themes > Components.

Would it be a feature request to allow this field to accept an SCSS var?

Can someone help me? When I create a new group I can add a flair but not for existing… there are no options in the group settings for this.
