[RFC] Show avatars in (post) search results

Post by PayBas » Tue Apr 15, 2014 4:18 pm

Avatars are an important way of recognizing users quickly.

I suggest showing the avatars in the search results, when viewing results in post-mode. This will make it resemble the regular viewtopic_body template more, and will look good. Win win.

p.s. Might as well include ranks too, while we're at it.

This isn't a big deal but I wouldn't mind having them show.

Why? What's the relevance shows avatar in search results? You don't need it.

The same reason we have them in viewtopic... recognition.

Well, there's a big difference between viewtopic and search results roles.

Include avatar (ranks and author information) doesnt bring any improvement to search result.

I wouldn't want avatars anywhere other than viewtopic and profiles but as long as I can turn them off then I don't care as much...
These kids today...
Buy them books, send them to school and what do they do?

They eat the paste. :lol:

Avatars in search results aren't useful.
If you are looking for posts from someone, all results will have the very same avatar.
If you are looking for some information, it doesn't really matter who wrote it (almost always).

Hey hey :D Check this out: Avatar on Memberlist. It's also about showing avatars somewhere (in the memberlist instead of search results).

You like it too don't you? And I bet it wouldn't ever be part of the core so... lol... wink wink ;) :) :D :mrgreen:

Actually... that is included in the core. Avatars on memberlist doesn't require a mod/extension, just a modified template.
