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();
      
      
}
}
