GRavatar plugin for WordPress and WordPress-MU

The GRavatar plugin works out of the mu-plugins directory and allows each blog user to enable it on his\her blog via the backend (under the presentation menu) we don’t want to force things on our users, do we?


There are reports that the GRavatar service slows down page loads so we will be adding a caching option to the plugin. This plugin can work just the same on a regular WordPress installs in the plugins directory.

Please note that this plugin uses the service and not local avatars.

Download: (version 0.2)

Usage: for WordPress-MU drop in the mu-plugins directory. For regular WordPress activate from the plugins directory.

    I’ve actually created a Gravatar class if you click the link in my name. Loosely coupled and works like a dream – it also has a cache with an expiration date for the avatar – to save on loading times. It can merely load the avatar in locally.
