Thanks hicux - but I fear I was not very clear with my question.

Your reply contains half of the answer and that is where the picture gets copied onto the server - but which data table/field to I record it in? Do I record it in the forums datatable or the user account avatar data field.

The Forums module is a bridge and the upload-script runs in the file: modules/iForums/includes/usercp_avatar.php. While uploading the file, the new avatar is storing in the _users table from the Your_Account module with a number for the avatar type:

table: nuke_users
------ field: user_avatar
------ field: user_avatar_type (1, 2, 3)

uploaded avatar (type 1): is using the avatar path from the board-config section + a random generated name for the uploaded filename
remote avatar (type 2): is using the full posted path
gallery avatar (type 3): is using the gallery path from the board-config section + the name of the gallery avatar file


I would suggest you to test it, what could be the best solution for you. Users with no avatar should get the gallery/blank.gif as path/filename and type 3. But i would also re-think the idea with the upload of the fb-profile-pic because the pictures could have different values for width and height. Facebook is not cutting the uploaded images from different resolutions. They are displaying only a cutted frame. Also make sure that you are not using chmod 777 for the upload directory on your server - that could be a highly security risk because every one can write in this directory . Try instead chmod 755.

Please note: The posted avatar-path from hicux is only the default setting and you can change it in the board-config section every time. Here the is best choice to query also the field avatar_path from the table _bbconfig. So you make sure to use every time the correct path and you can change it later without a hit.

Whether 777 or 755 will depend upon how PHP is set up to run on the server. If its run as an embedded Apache module, then the directory will have to be 777 in order for Apache to write to it. If PHP is running in CGI mode or using some form of SuExec, then 755 is what will most likely be needed. Bottom line really is determine what user context the PHP executable will be run as and what permissions that user has within your web context.

Thank you all for your information. It was very very useful to bring a resolution - Especially Neralex's detailed information.
