Simply install the Custom Avatars plugin by following these steps:
- Upload the ‘custom-avatars’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory of your WordPress installation.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
If your WordPress theme does not support avatars (which is rare), you can manually add the following snippet of code where you want the avatars to appear:
<?php get_avatar(); ?>
Avatars should be sized at 48×48 pixels. You can use a free graphics viewer/resizer such as IrfanView (available at www.irfanview.com) to resize your avatars. For themed icons that are free for personal and commercial use, visit www.iconfinder.net.
Once you have your avatars ready, upload them to the ‘custom-avatars/images’ folder in your WordPress plugins area. That’s it! Enjoy!
Allow your visitors to:
* Use custom random avatars instead of the default Gravatars.
