  • Resolved DanielFHC


    Hello, I have installed this plugin for my site. It’s used primarily for my site, and nothing more.

    I am curious on how I can change the default avatar (ugly pink looking thing) to something else.

    I don’t know where to go or what to do? Please respond if you know how to change teh default avatar for this plugin!

    Hey Daniel,

    You would have to actually take that up with Gravatar! That is their default image and when the user avatar plugin is enabled, it uses the default Gravatar (ugly pink looking thing…I think it’s decent…just have to use your imagination a bit)! If you are using People Lists (, then you can simply inactivate the user avatar plugin and select a default image from settings >> discussion. That ugly pink thing is a known standard default image WordPress-wide, so we chose to use our imaginations and stick with it. If you don’t have too many blog users, get them to go upload their own Gravatar that will be hooked to their account…!

    Hope this explains our reasoning and where it comes from,

    Hey Daniel & others with this issue,

    I finally gave in! I have added functionality for the uploaded avatar to be removed and defaulted to Gravatar! Next, I took in your suggestion and have decided to allow users to go to the Discussions Page (Settings >> Discussions) and select the default avatar of their choice so they don’t have to deal with the ugly pink looking thing! I will released this later today.

    Cheers & thanks for your feedback,
