Profile Covers


Well-known member
Members are used to adding profile covers as all other social media networks offer them to upload their own covers to profiles, it also adds extra customization per profile.
  • Let users be able to upload profile covers and have the ability to position the cover just like in the avatar editor
  • Have the cover be responsive friendly (like facebook)
With 2.0 profiles looking more modern and a lot better, profile covers will be amazing.

I tried searching for an existing suggestion but there wasn't one.

The cover can look like something it does on Facebook/Twitter, with a little part of the avatar on the bottom of the cover and rest of the avatar outside the cover, with username - user title and current activity right next to the avatar on top of the cover and the rest details as it is in 2.0 profile pages.

Here's a sloppy/quick mock-up of how it could be done on desktops, the same would then be resized (as part of responsive, like how Facbeook does too) for smaller screens.

Of course, a minor change would be required for user profiles on mobiles so that the avatar isn't smack center of the cover but rather just at the lower portion of the cover.

Profile Cover is a must thing nowadays, I'm currently using an add-on which is not supported and not up-to-date anymore, please add this in XenForo 2.0

We have an add on on our community for Profile Covers , it will be great if we can get rid of the add on and use this as a built in feature.

Since you are bringing 2.1 and all these cool features. It would be really good to add profile cover photos as a core feature. There is already the space for it on the profile page, just need to add the function.
