Avalicious!

Description

Avalicious! is a WordPress plugin that integrates LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, and Tumblr user avatars in WordPress comments. It is a functional re-write of Also LJ Avatar (itself a re-write of some even older plugins), with the following differences:

  • user avatars are downloaded via the cURL library, hopefully avoiding issues with hosts that disable remote URL includes
  • the regexps for extracting avatars have been improved
  • the user’s journal URL is extracted from a comment’s URL (not the name)
  • the user’s name is not re-written.

Version 1.3

  • Added support for Tumblr icons.
  • Old icons are now cleaned up automatically every month.
  • Small bugfixes.

Credits

Avalicious! is based off the original Also LJ Avatar by Ravenwood and Irwin. No disrespect is intended towards the original authors; without their great work, this plugin wouldn’t have been possible (or at least would’ve taken a hell of a lot longer to write).

Installation

  1. Upload the avalicious folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. If required, make the avalicious/danga-icons directory writable (though the plugin should work without it).
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  4. Profit!
