I feel like this should be easy, yet after trying multiple plug-ins and different functions, I cannot get it working.
Ok - so I maintain an open-to-the-public blog which invites anyone to log in using standard wordpress methods OR use their Twitter account to write up a post (or comment).
I would like their avatar to show at the top of the post the write. If they logged in using Twitter, their Twitter icon would display. Otherwise, their Gravatar (if it exists) will display.
I can get this working in the Comments just fine. A user logs in using twit-connect, posts their comment, and their av shows. But for some reason, when that same person writes a post... It ignores Twitter and only shows default gravatar.
I've used Twitter & Twicon for WordPress plugins. I tried hacking functions.php to create a new function based on techniques described here: http://www.wprecipes.com/wordpress-hack-automatically-insert-author-bio-on-each-post -- but nothing works! All the Twitter functions look for is the email of the twitter user, which they dont ever put in.
