So it seems that most of the images I’m uploading for peoples profile pictures are getting zoomed in/cropped/cut out
How can I fix this so the directory displays more of the original image and not so zoomed in?
Thank you!11/28/2018 at 10:03 am #478094
Navigate to the Connections : Templates admin page and click the Customize button for cMap.
The page will reload displaying the Customizer on the left and a preview on the right.
Click the back arrow in the upper left of the Customizer.
Now, click the Image panel.
Here you can choose your crop mode and define image size.
Take time to read the instructions displayed above the directory in the preview. You will have to click an entry name in the preview so it displays the entry profile. Make the changes to the Image settings again.
Again, click the back arrow in the upper left of the Customizer.
Click the Bio tray image panel. Here will will be able to make the same changes to the image displayed in the bio content tray.
After all your changes are complete, click the Publish button and and exit the Customizer.
Hope this helps!11/28/2018 at 10:53 am #478111
Ok I got the first part, the 2nd part is being tricky.
There is already a picture that auto-populates in their bios, but when I adjust the settings it doesn’t affect the original pic. But if I chose Photo from the Type dropdown it populates the custom image size I set.
So how do I disable the stock bio pic then?11/28/2018 at 11:52 am #478116
RE: So how do I disable the stock bio pic then?
There is an option to display none under image type. Chose that to disable the image from being displayed.11/28/2018 at 11:58 am #478119
When I do that it removes the custom image and leaves the stock, zoomed in image?

I have Image Type: None for Bio Tray, but I still have a 200×300 custom box with crop to fit with no margins11/28/2018 at 12:06 pm #478123
Wait I figured it out, i turned off Bio tray photo and just kept the Image photo enabled and adjusted the custom size and everything seems to be populating properly now.
Thanks for the grade A support!!11/28/2018 at 12:19 pm #478128

Is there any way to add a link to a image WITHOUT it adding a Website or Blog link to the right?
I’m just trying to hotlink their image to their profile within my website and if I do “assign to image” in their profiles it always adds an extra link for their profile to the right.
