Good plugin - rotten support
By , for WP 3.9.1

Just look at the support tab to see how few issues have been resolved.
Have been using this plugin happily for some time. Recently something happened to make it stop working.

I tried to contact author through his website but when hitting the 'submit' button, the form was blocked for being spam (that made me panic and check the blacklists but came up clean)

I came back to wordpress.org to seek a solution but discovered that the author seems to resolve perhaps one in twenty posts.

There are other plugins. I'll move on.

Basic for improving WordPress privacy
By , for WP 3.9.1

I'm installing and activating this plugin, by default, in all my WordPress sites. It an elegant way to disable undesired information leaks to Gravatar.

Great thing

This is great thing. I could easily create frontend avatar uploader on it's base.

just what I needed

Beautifully simple

Have a multi-author site, and for whatever reason one of the authors' avatar was not showing up. Installed this and solved the problem on the spot. Also nice if you want to use a different avatar for your site than you have globally, or if you simply don't want a wordpress.com/Gravatar account.

UPDATE: Plugin worked well until one of the 3.8 point releases, after which something broke. Had to disable in order for some of my users to show up on site. Am now using the Avatar Manager plugin.

Thanks Jake and the 10up team - just what I was after! I don't even have to look at the code knowing that you guys made it.

Excellent plugin with one unfixed bug unfortunately
By , for WP 3.7.1

This is a great, simple plugin that I have already recommended to many developers. Unfortunately, the reason why I am giving it four stars is because the upload limit filter is not working as it should. We discussed this here:

With no reply from the developer. I will certainly update this review to five star rating once this problem is addressed.
