Avatar Privacy

Adds options to enhance the privacy when using avatars.

0.3 (2013-02-24)

  • used transients API to cache results of requests to gravatar.com for a small amount of time
  • added two previously untranslated strings to the translation files
  • added a link to the label of the checkbox in the comment and user profile forms
  • checked compatibility with WP 3.5.1

0.2 (2012-06-11)

  • Bugfix: lower-case and trim E-Mail addresses before hashing to produce a gravatar URL (otherwise gravatars are not displayed if the address is entered with mixed case) -- thanks to "Schokokaese" for finding the problem and solution
  • Bugfix: repaired a bug so that the plugin actually caches the results of a gravatar check and uses these cached results if the same E-Mail address appears twice on a page
  • Bugfix: corrected image name of the "Media Artist" image (large version)
  • removed the check for the get_headers PHP function unless the "Don't publish encrypted E-Mail addresses for non-members of gravatar.com." option is enabled to not annoy other users -- thanks to Scott for finding the problem
  • added some simple inline CSS to fix the display of the checkbox in the comment form with TwentyTen theme
  • fixed notice for deprecated function get_user_by_email
  • added screenshots
  • tested with WP 3.4
  • tested with plugins User Photo and Twitter Avatar Reloaded
