Easy Author Image

Adds an author image uploader to your profile page. Upload an author image right from your profile page with the click of a button.


  • Removed alt tag with gravatar email address from gravatar img tag.


  • Fixed JQuery function bug from 1.4 update!


  • Big thanks to Chris McBride (Devonto.com) for the following 1.4 updates: Show an empty box when no image uploaded; Display the uploaded image when selected; Display the success message in red; Show a “delete” button to be able to remove the image
  • Added js strengthening for header redirects
  • Cleaned up code and added minified version of parts that could use it


  • Added Vladimir's (Pixel Industry) updated get_easy_author_image() handling of user_id. Previously the plugin was only using the email address. Now users can use a standardized way to fetch the avatar (sans get_author_image_url), and if you deactivate the plugin, you won't see any problems (because there is no dependency on get_author_image_url). Thanks, Vladimir!
  • Removed old dependencies on dated JS files (and updated JS files to match plugin).


  • Updated depreciated update_usermeta to update_user_meta on line 121.
  • Added the ability for admin to upload/update other users' easy author images.


  • Made Easy Author Image default back to Gravatar if an author chose not to use it.


  • Released.
