  • I’m having a problem where Sociable’s FB Connect plugin is overriding the “get_avatar()” call that I make in the footer of my theme.

    On the theme of my blog I use the get_avatar function to call avatars for all my contributors within the footer. You can see an example of the “normal” footer here:

    However, with the Facebook Connector plugin installed, the get_avatar function calls the avatar of the very last commenter to leave a post (as oppose to the author) within the footer. Here’s an example:

    Note, this ONLY happens if the last commenter users FB Connect to leave their comment. If they didn’t use Facebook Connect, then the footer appears as it should and the get_avatar function calls the correct avatar for each of the contributors

    I’m not much of a coder, but it appears to me that the plugin is (essentially) taking over the “get_avatar” function and not letting it go so I can use it elsewhere on the page. How might I go about clearing the “get_avatar” function after it is done cycling through the comments (but before the footer)?

    By the way, i thought I’d point out that I did try the developers website first, but after a few days, my comment has not yet had a response:

    Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Did you ever figure anything out on this?

    I’m having similar issues using Facebook Connect. My main problem is when a user is posting a comment. They post their comment and it is processed through ajax without a page refreshed. Since the page is not being refreshed FB Connect is not processing the avatars properly so I have a blank avatar.

    Nope… never did find a solution… Instead I just took down the call to get_avatar(). not ideal, but at least the site doesn’t look broken.
