Custom User Profile Photo

Add a customized User Profile photo to a WordPress user profile.

A more flexible way to attach and display a photo for a WordPress user profile.

Some users might not have or want to have a gravatar account or other universal avatar account. They simply may want to use a one-time specified photo to represent them on your WordPress site. This plugin solves that use case.

With the ability to upload a photo to a user profile via the WordPress Media Uploader or by specifying an external URL to an image, your users and/or authors can have a personalized photo specific to your website.*

By utilizing the WordPress Media Uploader, you also have the ability to use and of the predefined images sizes that the media uploader creates and any custom images size specific to your theme.

This plugin will add a custom set of fields to the user profile page which will allow for the use of a custom profile photo.

You can add/change/edit uploaded photos directly from the user profile page. The external option allows you to provide a URL to the external image or remove it.

*Future Updates to this plugin include full WordPress avatar integration (posts and comments), allowing other roles to access this feature, and ajax processing of images that use the WordPress Media Uploader.

To use this plugin, simply go to the users section and select a user. The new fields are added to the bottom of the user profile page. Choose which type of photo you want to use. Upload or add the url, depending on your option. Then press the Update Profile button.

To retrieve the photo on the front-end use the following example on your template page(s):

    // Retrieve The Post's Author ID
    $user_id = get_the_author_meta('ID');
    // Set the image size. Accepts all registered images sizes and array(int, int)
    $size = 'thumbnail';

    // Get the image URL using the author ID and image size params
    $imgURL = get_cupp_meta($user_id, $size);

    // Print the image on the page
    echo '<img src="'. $imgURL .'" alt="">';
