Bug: Avatars missing in Community overview

This bug has been bugging me for some time, so now I'm filing it:

On the community Overview-Page (http://www.sap.com/community.html), there are some featured blogs.

But: they don't display the authors Avatar, which they should!

(If the user would not have an Avatar, this would be fine - but if you follow the link, you see there is one -> so it should be displayed! (important for recognition)

    It seems fine now - at least when I just checked, all the blogs missing a picture on the front page actually had no profile picture.

    Hi Joachim,

    Yes, we're still working on improving this. It's getting closer to a time when we'll have dynamic content feeds that will properly display images and text for blogs and questions. That said, if a user doesn't upload an image to their profile, it will still appear as a silhouette.

    I should know more next week about when these will be ready.

    Thanks for asking!

    What is really interesting, that the gender of the pictures is correct!

    I will go out on a limb here and make an assumption that the screen is not using a feature widget, so similar to the Member of the Month section at the bottom of the page, the Community Overview page requires controlled maintenance?

    Hi all,

    Yes, the Community Overview page has to be manually updated (for now). With that, the avatars for the blogs section have to manually uploaded to the content editing system and do not automatically appear if the profile picture is available. We're working on making that the case so they do not need to be manually uploaded.

    @Vadim, it's funny you mention the gender of the shadow pictures being correct. That's because I have to add them in manually. Again, for now.

    We are working on updates the overview page to improve not only the large hero spot at the top, but these other issues as well. Stay tuned!

    Catherine
