    Good Evening,

    In WordPress, I wish to change the default gravatar and found instructions to do this in functions.php. Would this be considered changing a core file? I’ve read the file is not mandatory, but just want to make sure when upgrading to WP 3.0 for instance that this change to functions.php will not be overwritten with a new version.

    Thank you!

    Cheers,
    Christopher

  • functions.php is in your theme. Any changes you make to your theme are safe. (as long as its not the default WP theme…..never edit the default WP theme, copy and rename it…as it gets replaced on upgrade)

    so in short, you’re safe

    Great, thanks!

    Cheers,
    Christopher
