No avatars show up

  • Hi.

    I recently installed bbPress on my WordPress site here at

    I’ve built a theme based on 1col_fixed 1.1 (I believe it’s kakumei with most of the CSS stripped out). In any case, when I go to my forums I can see my Gravatars and default avatars in kakumei, but when I switch on my theme they disappear.

    Is there a php file I’m missing or a block of code somewhere I need to copy over from the kakumei theme to get these to work? If so, where should I put the code?

  • I realize the avatars question has been discussed here before, but I can’t find forum postings that answer this particular question. If you know of one, by all means, please point me in that direction. Thanks.



    Avatars are turned on the the admin settings?

    Do you have this in your template’s post.php:

    <?php post_author_avatar_link(); ?>

    Also, this appears in profile.php:

    <?php if ( $avatar = bb_get_avatar( $user->ID ) ) : ?>

    <div id="useravatar"><?php echo $avatar; ?></div>

    <?php unset($avatar); endif; ?>

    Thanks, chrishajer! I got it working now.

    Had to change

    <?php post_author_avatar_link(); ?>


    <?php post_author_avatar(); ?>

    but now the avatars are showing in my theme.

    Thanks for the quick response.
