  • Resolved Greg Ross


    After upgrading to 1.4 the text overlaps the avatar.

    This is because of the new code to handle custom sized avatars uses the “wp_author_avatar_size” setting without checking to make sure it’s been set.

    What is happening is that on an existing install, the avatar size is not set and so it evaluates to 0 until you go in to the settings page and save the settings.

    For most plugins it is best practice to disable and re-enable to instantiate any new settings. If you just overwrite the plugin using FTP you want get the upgraded settings.

    Sounds like you were able to get it working after the fix.

    I would think very few people de-activate/activate a plugin during an upgrade.

    WordPress doesn’t do this automatically during the built in upgrade process so more than likely users don’t do it after the upgrade is complete (I know I certainly don’t).

    I really found the problem on a site I have that has enabled automatic plugin updates, which certainly don’t cycle the plugin.

    Perhaps a simple check to see if the image size is greater than 0 would be a good idea.

    Added some code to check for new options when displaying the author box or viewing the wep about author admin.
