This simple plugin is useful for retrieving the clean URL of the avatar of the author, in the case you are using the get_avatar function.

It works as a parser, cleaning up the returned value of get_avatar.

Please note: the get_avatar_img requires WP 2.5 or above.


  1. Upload get-avatar-img folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Place <?php echo get_avatar_img(get_the_author_id()) ?> in your templates. Please note: this function will return an URL as, not an HTML tag
