Re: bbpress / wordpress avatar?
I have modified Dan’s Avatar Thingy to work on both WordPress and bbPress (the avatar is set in the WordPress user interface). It’s really rather easy to do.
I actually also modified the plugin so that instead of always resizing an image to a certain size, it instead checks that the image is not bigger than X*Y, and only acts if it is.
Tell me, if you are interested, and I can e-mail you the source for my modified Avatar Thingy. Note, though, that I made the modifications with my own website in mind, so it isn’t really an “out-of-the-box” solution, and you will most certainly need to do some coding to get it work for you (much depends on how exactly your bbPress is intergrated with WordPress).
