Great is the art of beginning, but greater is the art of ending
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I announce that I cease all development and activity in the programming universe indefinitely. My career has reached the turning point I was not expecting for at least another year, leaving me highly off guard and without laid-out plans for this hobby's continuity. I have begun a 5-year residency program in Neurosurgery which is clearly not compatible, time-wise, with programming.

I gave in all my passion for developing, and you gave me back your loyalty and trust, even when I did not deserve that much. Now it is the time for payback. I release all my present and past work as Open Source software, in the hope some talented developer will continue maintaining and expanding my vision of a modern, sleek forum software. The intrinsic flexibility of MyBB is the true hidden gem of an otherwise outdated codebase; I do hope the project can continue and be updated complying to the latest coding standards.

I hereby thank Euan, kawaii, andrewjs18, Ben, Matt, Omar G., effone, Eric J., Devilshakerz, Wildcard, JordanMussi and all the other team members I have had the opportunity to work with when I was a MyBB team member. I thank Tomm M, my mentor, who inspired me to pick up coding with his piece-of-art plugins. And finally, I thank all of you MyBBoost subscribers who have helped me getting through my toughest university years economically.

Yours sincerely, Filippo

Letter Avatars 1.0.2

10 Oct 2018 Edited
Letter Avatars lets you create Google-style default avatars using usernames' initial letters; give your board an elegant touch without being obtrusive or heavy on server's resources. Letter Avatars uses an external server – – to provide crisp dynamic images extracting user's username initials.

You have fine-grain control over the hue range, luminosity, font size, shape and letter case of avatars.

Avatars have an average load latency of 2 ms; you will not even notice them loading, and they will not block page rendering.

You decide how many letters you would like to display. 1 resembles Google the most, but 2 is usually the best choice for style and readability.

Whether if you choose dark or light luminosity backgrounds, the text's color will be automatically adjusted to ensure the best contrast possible.

Minimum requirements

MyBB 1.8.0
PHP 7.1


Upload Letter Avatars to your MyBB installation maintaining its folder structure integrity. Install and activate from the plugins manager.

I double checked, and it seems like their servers are changing at the moment. We should wait and see how the API will change as it looks like the endpoint is different from region to region.

Thanks, shade hope the final edits is enough until they migrate their servers.

The problem seems to have improved today.

It's work:

Not working:
"fontsize" not working. Replace again "font-size".

I have installed and activated the plugin, did my settings and clicked "Assign avatars to users with no avatar" but didn't see any change in the avatars :( Is this plugin still works?

P.S. I tried on default theme.
Shade 7 Jun 2020
Yes, Letter Avatars still works. What's your board url?
abid khan 7 Jun 2020 Edited

Any help, I am looking forward to get it working. Thanks.

Letter Avatars sets a remote avatar, which is currently disabled on your site. You will need to allow remote avatars in your settings.

I can't get a rounded avatar. I enable it in setting even it remains square.
Will it remove already avatar of users?
Thank you.
