crashed my site
By , for WP 4.1.1

As soon as I tried to connect to my twitter account I get a blank page and it froze. It did allow me to X the page, but when I did, my admin section went blank and I couldnt retrieve it. So it crashed the back-end. I had an idea, so I went to my site, and as I suspected, it had crashed as well.
FIX: FTPd to my server, went to the plugins directory, deleted plugin directory, reload site - fine, and reloaded admin-fine.

Do not use this plugin until it has been teste by the developers. Very disappointing

Worked for a time

Worked for a time but is now broken.

Problems
By ,

It have broken some other plugins, also there was problem when one upload avatar image (it doesn't show)

Does not work for my site
By , for WP 3.7.1

The avatar files upload fine but they break when they should be displayed.

My site is at http://server/blog (there are multiple sites I am running on that server)

I created a directory called http://server/blog/avatars and sure enough the plugin will upload the files to that site.

So now I have an image at http://server/blog/avatars/avatar.jpg

BUT, when it tries to display the file it uses the URL

http://server/avatars/avatar.jpg <- and since this file does not exist the link is broken.

Thanks!

This is the best plugin to load a custom avatar!
Avatars are not downloaded to the shared folder of images to a website. It is very convenient. The other similar plugins use a common image folder for avatars. This creates confusion.
But there are several problems with scaling large images, sometimes errors occur. And I could not get rid of these in the code size of avatars.
I hope the author will improve the plug-in in the future.
Many thanks for a great plugin! I wish you success!

PS. Sorry for my bad English. :)

Made my Admin page go blank.
By , for WP 3.6.1

Installing this plugin has caused me hours of headache. As soon as I activated it my admin page went blank. Trying to deactivate it has caused a cascade of other problems (probably not the fault of the plug-in). If you do decide to download, make sure you know how to deactivate it on your server before you hit the button.

Bad plugin
