Hello,

I have memberprofiles in place with a registerform on the front-end. People can register and they get added to the Member table. I also have forum module installed, and therefor Member table is extended with a Avatar. People can upload an Avatar in the registration form. This all works, and you can view the avatar in your online profile or in the CMS (as admin).

After registration a few emails get send: 1 to Admin, 1 to user.

Ok now my issue:
in the emails i would like to include the avatar.. but how?

ive tried lots of things, like

                    <% control AvatarID %>
                        <img src="$SetWidth(150).Link" />
                    <% end_control %>
                    <% control Avatar %>
                        <img src="$SetWidth(150).Link" />
                    <% end_control %>
                       $AvatarID.SetWidth(150)
                        $Avatar.SetWidth(150)
                        $avatar.SetWidth(150)
                        
		<img class="userAvatar" src="$FormattedAvatar" alt="Avatar" /><br />

but they all result in a broken path/link for the image source..

How do i include the avatar in the data that gets send?

my email function:


	function onBeforeWrite() {

        if (!$this->owner->exists()) {

			/* ADMIN EMAIL ACTIVATE */
			$AdminEmail = new Email();
			$AdminData = $this->owner->getAllFields();
			$AdminToAddress = Email::getAdminEmail();
			$AdminEmail->setTo($AdminToAddress);
			$AdminEmail->setSubject('Nieuw lid: Activatie vereist');
			$AdminEmail->setFrom($this->owner->Email);
			$AdminEmail->setTemplate('EmailAccountActivation');
			$AdminEmail->populateTemplate($AdminData);
			$AdminEmail->send();
			
			/* USER EMAIL CONFIRMED CREATED */
			$UserEmail = new Email();
			$UserData = $this->owner->getAllFields();
			$UserEmail->setTo($this->owner->Email);
			$UserFromAddress = Email::getAdminEmail();
			$UserEmail->setSubject('Uw account is aangemaakt');
			$UserEmail->setFrom($UserFromAddress);
			$UserEmail->setTemplate('EmailAccountCreated');
			$UserEmail->populateTemplate($UserData);
			$UserEmail->send();
		
		
        }
    }
