Group Image | Forum

If a member starts a group but does not add an image you see a white block with "no image" This makes the site look bad is there not a way to add a generic picture if a member does not upload an image when group is created.

Yes, sure. You can change this image via FTP.
Replace file: ow_static/plugins/groups/images/no-picture.gif

would this need to be redone if a core update comes, ie, does an update set it back to default?

It can be need to redone, if update pack of group's plugins contains this file. In other words, if there were changes in this file in update, then this file will be replaced

Addenster - Is there a way to remove the image option all together? To clarify, I do not want an image associated with a group. thanks

Scott, disabling images would require a code modification.
Sconer Feb 19 '12
Is this something that I can do? Or possibly request? How about making photo optional within setting in the next release?

you could always make this image  ow_static/plugins/groups/images/no-picture.gif a 1x1 transparent pixel
