[resolved] Adding avatars (2 posts)

    Is there a way (maybe in a new custom field) that I could have the users add their own avatar on the "member's area" page? (I'm trying to stay away from members having access to dashboard) I would really like this to be their avatar for the entire site. PLEASE let me know if there is any way I can do this!

    If there isn't (which i HOPE there is) can this be something that is added in a newer version??

    WordPress uses gravatar for user avatars. Gravatars are attached to the user's email address, so it is more an understanding of how you can use the WordPress function get_avatar to display the avatar.

    There are presently six tutorials on my premium support site for the plugin that have examples of using get_avatar, one of which is free. (Not all of them are specific tutorials about get_avatar, but they all use it in some way in the example.)
