[Plugin: Author Avatars List] Ignoring users with no gravatar

    we don’t fetch the gravatars we just let wordpress fetch them. I can’t think how to work if the gravatar is the default.

    Let me look at this

    We currently just call get_avatar( $id_or_email, $size = ’96’, $default = ‘<path_to_url>’ );

    But I don’t think we are using a default URL so I ready this right we can replace the gravtar default with one of our choice

    if so I am thing that I should add an option to select between gravtar default – transpairent – URL

    Does that sound what you need?


    Thanks for the replies. Paul, I’m not exactly sure what you mean. I basically need users that don’t have gravatars to be added to the $hiddenusers array.

    Using the code that Ipstenu linked to, I have a way of doing this, but it has to ping the gravatar site for every user, which takes ages!

    If I figure something out, I’ll let you know.

    yes pinging for each user will take a longtime

    What I am looking at is providing an opion to override the default image from gravatar with a local image.

    I was planing to provide a tranperent 1×1 as an option and a custom URL for the other.

    so when in the avatar list there would be an hole if no gravatar rather than the grey/white man

    To remove users without Gravatar from the list is harder as it is costly in time to ping for the 404’s two throughts

    we don’t do it every time and cache the results witch is a pile of server code

    we do it client side in JS by walking the list and do an ajax call for each image and remove the images that return 404’s





    ^^Sounds good to me.

    Need a simple way to ignore users without a Gravatar – I just had to go through an exclude usernames and it took a while.
