Proper Custom Avatars

Proper Custom Avatars.

Version 0.1 * Plugin created

Version 0.1.3 * Updated the path to the default image to make it compliant with WP 3.5.1

Version 0.1.4 * Added folder /img inside "/wp-contents/plugins/proper-avatars" the plugin will look for "default.jpg" in there to show it. This was done to fix a hardcoded call to my own site i forgot to remove while testing the custom funtionality

Version 1.0.0


  • WOW, lots done, I don't know where to start:

    1. Added SANITATION to the input to avoid code Injections!!! (very important)
    2. Added the hability to change the Custom Avatar from the backend, (Uses a row on wp_options table)
    3. Completely filtered out unneeded calls to gravatars.com from the get_avatar function in WP
    4. Solved a bug that scrambled the gravatars in 3.42 and 3.51 (just unset the default Avatars array)
    5. Added a link for support on the backend (please keep it and feel free to post a thanks it feeds my ego)
    6. Got rid of the original code for setting the default site wide avatar that was basically a copy paste
    7. Optimized the filter to get_avatar function to simplify the ifs loop (it is a headache)
    8. The way the code for the Deafult image is inserted in WP will allow to use the PG settings if you desire
    9. No more editing the plugin or dropping files to define the avatars
    10. Solved a bug where the custom Avatar for users was not showing in the backend
    11. Drank about 3 liters of coffee

That's all for now. (oh yes, better instructions for installation and setup in this read me)

  • Forgot to add the /img folder to svn (Linus Torwalds is right, SVN is a pain in the)
