Better Profiles….

    Is there a better option than gravatar for making avatars? I like gravatar, but most novice users still can’t figure it out. Also – are there better options for profiles in general? Are there plugins where people can add real information to their profile pages, not just the bbpress defaults? I don’t need much, just a little more than is there now, like a bio and whatnot.

    The best plugin for uploading avatars is bavatars: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bavatars/

    Thanks! so… a bit short on documentation there. I installed.. it seems to be installed correctly (at least it says that it is) but I see no new options in the user panel…. what do i need to do to the template to create a place for users to upload and manage avatars?

    So… anyone got a clue what might be missing here? Here’s the test forum – http://www.triplepundit.com/forum … I suspect I’m missing something in one of the templates?

    bavatars adds a tab to your user profile, next to Favorites, but since your forum template is custom, I do not know exactly where you have to look at…

    good

    Interesting… so assuming my templates were default… where would I look for the code to add this? I can get in there and add it if I knew what it looked like.

    Do you want to customize the template for the upload avatar page? Edit the bavatar-profile.php file that comes with the plugin. It has an action inside, if I remember correctly, which hook you can modify.
