WordPress 3.51 the proper way to get custom avatars

Miércoles, 30 de enero de 2013

WordPress does not have an option to remove calls to gravatar.com, nor to set default site avatars or add custom user avatars outside gravatar.com Many people claims that calls to gravatar.com slow down the sites and some are just bored of the silly default mystery man or the monsters. You can disable Avatars completely but this plugin adds functionality to set your custom avatar and the site default one.

Buy me a beer

Previously I had created a code for my functions.php in my theme see here but then I upgraded to 3.51 and it worked but in the back end there where some problems.

Also I realized I was not protecting the input fields against injections which is a very bad thing.

So I did the sensible thing and started coding again, I ended up making a plugin out of it.

This plugin adds the following functionality:

  1. Show Avatars
  2. Remove calls to gravatar.com
  3. Use local default Avatar
  4. Add custom avatar for the blog users
  5. Display Custom avatar for blog users
  6. Display default avatar for unregistered commenter
  7. Display custom avatar for comment replies

Installation:

  1. Extract the download on your computer and upload the proper-avatars folder to wp-content/plugins/.
  2. Enable the plugin from the ‘Plugins’ page.
  3. Go to settings -> discussion; Scroll down to the option to set the site wide default avatar
  4. type or Paste the URL of the Avatar image you would like to use in the field
  5. Go to your user profile and add the url to your avatar (Every user can do that)
  6. type or Paste the URL of the Avatar image you would like to use in the field
Get it now!
