With [csl], when a registered user makes a blog comment it is very common to show their avatar next to their comment. If the person making the comment is not a registered user, then typically the "anonymous avatar" would be shown. I had gone and implemented an Identicon control for anonymous co... [More]

I was working a new control for the [bundle] and was in need of a condition control within [csl] that didn't appear to exist.

I whipped up a little [csl] Add-on that can display an Identicon. The code is more or less right from Jeff; I modified image caching to use [cs] cach... [More]

A couple of members on the Community Server forums wanted a way to block new members based on known SPAM domains. This sounded like a great idea for a CSModule. I looked at the list of events and saw that there is an event fired off before and after a user is created! Great! The PostUserUpdate ... [More]

  "Rocket City Web" of the Community Server forums asked if it is possible to limit top posting members to a certain forum. At first, I had though the member points system would be perfect for this. However, Member Points is an add-on and not available for the "Personal Edition" of C... [More]
