BuddyPress Identicons

Description

Sick of having a community full of the same mystery face?

If a member doesn’t have an uploaded avatar or Gravatar, this plugin will generate an identicon from a hash of their email address. Identicons are fun and highly likely to be unique.

FAQ

Is the plugin network compatible?

Yes.

I don’t like my own identicon. Can I change it?

Yes. Your identicon will change if you change your email address.

Can I change the image used for non-members?

Yes. You can filter the image URL:

function identicons_filter_avatar_url() {
    $upload_dir = wp_upload_dir();
    return trailingslashit( $upload_dir['baseurl'] ) . 'image.png';
}
add_filter( 'identicons_get_avatar_url', 'identicons_filter_avatar_url' );
Can I make the image background transparent?

Yes. To set a transparent background go to Settings > BuddyPress and then look for the option under the Settings tab.

Can I change the image size?

Yes. The default is 150px square but you can change that by filtering the “full” width and height settings. For example:

function identicons_filter_avatar_full_width() {
    return 120;
}
add_filter( 'bp_core_avatar_full_width', 'identicons_filter_avatar_full_width' );

function identicons_filter_avatar_full_height() {
    return 120;
}
add_filter( 'bp_core_avatar_full_height', 'identicons_filter_avatar_full_height' );
Can I change the identicon type?

Yes. To change the identicon type go to Settings > Discussion and select an option under Default Avatar.

Why is it that some members don’t have an identicon?

An identicon is used as a member’s avatar only if a profile photo hasn’t been uploaded.

Where should I submit bug reports?
