Support » Plugins » Gravatar Implementation Help

  • Hello everyone,

    I am trying to get gravatar working on my website, so that any users posting comments who have a gravatar associated with their email address, will have their picture posted along with their comment.

    I have downloaded the gravatar plugin for wordpress, from this site and installed it successfully.

    In the implementation section it gives examples of HTML to add in order to use the plugin… But I’m not sure -where- this code is supposed to be added.

    The code to be added seems to be something like this.

    <?php gravatar("R", 40); ?>

    So, I would like to show the gravatar image for each poster, near their comment, assuming they have a gravatar registered.

    Where would I insert the above code to get that done?

    I assume it should go in the code which controls the comment output… But I’m not sure where that is.

    Thanks for any help on this! I’m a little lost.

    – Harvey

  • Hey look what I found.

    Still not exactly getting it though. I am using the ‘pool’ theme.

    I’m looking in comments.php, and trying to find code similar to…

    <li class="<?php echo $oddcomment; ?>" id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    <cite><?php comment_author_link() ?></cite> Says:

    As mentioned in the codex…

    No luck yet. If I get it, will post the answer and close for future reference 😉

    I ended up insterting the gravatar code just before the line that looks like this in the POOL theme.

    <li id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" class="<?php echo $bg_comment; ?>">

    Hope this helps someone some day!

    Thanks Harvey for documenting you process of getting the Gravatar plugin working. You saved me some time and I appreciate it. Thanks again!
