Description

When creating an event not from a group (a personal event) the default image shows. Should this instead be the member's profile photo?

Scott, could you be more specific about which event image you're referring to? Is it the same images that appear underneath the date overlay at https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/events/?

Using a profile image for an event doesn't seem like it would be a relevant default behavior in most cases.

We had a member wondering how to change the default image that appears on a personal event. See attached. I agree that a profile photo is probably not appropriate, but neither is the default image. Maybe just not display it at all?

Looking at the codebase, it appears that this image is populated by the Featured Image. And at least some events have successfully set a Featured Image - see eg https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/events/event/mapping-working-group-meeting/. But I don't see the ability to set the featured image on a new event, either in a group or outside of one. Did post-thumbnails get turned off for this interface or something? Ray, what do you think?

We have to add 'post-thumbnails' support to our bp-nelo theme in order to support a featured image for events.

Previously, we didn't have to do this because the 'bp-default' theme already added support for 'post-thumbnails'; but now, since 'bp-nelo' is its own theme, we have to declare 'post-thumbnails' support ourselves. I've just done so in https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/03e71ccd5f58a568c3c2bc703be72875c3409fb8 . This will be a part of the next maintenance release on November 14th.

Good catch, Ray!

Scott, this means that there will be a 'Featured Image' section when creating/editing an event after the fix is released.
