This article applies to CARMA 1.3.2.2 and greater

CARMA contains a feature that allows it to display a photo of your actors on pages featuring that particular actor.

Upload Photos

Before CARMA can display any photos for your actors, you must first upload the photos you wish to use. To upload a new photo, go to the Actors Admin and add a new actor or edit a currently existing actor. On the Editing Actor page, upload your desired actor photo into the "Photo" field, then click Save Actor.

carma_actor_photo_name Template Function

You can display just the actor photo on any page by using the carma_actor_photo_name template function. For example:

Template Code


{carma_list count=500 list="actors" order="name ASC"}
{foreach from=$carma_list.actor item=actor}
  {$actor.name}<br>
  {if $actor.photo}
    <img src="view_image.php?actorid={$actor.actorid}&width=300&height=300"><br>
  {else}
    [no photo]<br>
  {/if}
  <hr>
{/foreach}
