Plugin: Gravatar

  • I wrote a simple plugin for Gravatar. I am planning to put files on Extend, but I am still waiting. You can download it from Google Code for now, please visit this plugin’s homepage. You can find a download link and know how to modify your theme in the page.

    It is relatively simple:

    • Gravatar Email field – This plugin doesn’t use user’s registered email.
    • Email Verification – Users need to own the Gravatar Emails which they input.
    • Support Default Image
    • Size customized (1..80px)

    I hope I can hear your thoughts about this plugin.

    Nice job!

    That’s a strange feature to use an email address that the person didn’t use to register but you made it work so I guess you made it work.

    Remember that gravatars are going to be allowed up to 128×128 soon (so says Matt).

    Aha… I just realized that I didn’t know users can change their registered email. (I use a Key Master to edit normal user’s profile…)

    I should remove this Gravatar Email field to make code simpler and add another field Use Gravatar?. Maybe add some other features as well.

    I am also waiting Gravatar to allow larger avatar. Once it allow, I will put a new version out.


    I changed my mind. bbPress doesn’t check the validity of new email address and confirm the user really own that new email address.

    I like this plugin the way it is! It is great! Thank you! Don’t forget to add it to the repository as well:



    Thanks for liking it. I already requested, I know it need sometime to get approval.

    I wish I would have seen this earlier. :) I just hacked in gravatar support by using the wordpress plugin. Since I didn’t see any listed in the extensions section I went ahead and applied to have mine added. I will go ahead and delete mine since their is really no point in having two.

    If you have any use for the code I used let me know I can send it on.

    I think there is no need to delete yours. Your porting plugin should have more features than mine. I am too lazy, therefore my Gravatar plugin only has the functionalities that I need. However I will add a feature if someone asks and I agree that is a general need.

    Here is a link to mine:

    From browsing your code mine is way way basic. :) Just one function and one call. Also mine only uses the posters registered email as well.

    Thanks guys, great job :)
