Using the profile picture from twitter


(Alex Flom) #1

Hello,

When a new user signs up with twitter/facebook is there a way to use his profile photo by default from the social network(without the need to upload the photo into discourse) ?

Thanks

I personally would be okay with this setting if it’s possible. But allow the new user to chose. There were times when a site offered only Facebook as an option which I took to login. The software then auto-ganked my Real Life profile photo and my real name and did not allow me to edit it. A user should have the option to chose what goes where. And that is why after that little debacle I will never, ever use Facebook to login elsewhere when creating a new account.

There are existing topics on this. We support it but have not had time to build it. If anyone wants to build it and submit it as a pull request, go ahead.
