Author Gravatar

The Author Gravatar addon can be enabled / disabled with the “Gravatar Images for Author Indexes” option checkbox on the General settings page. When enabled, the addon will include the user’s Gravatar image on author index webpages. Here’s an example illustrating the http://surniaulula.com/author/jsmoriss/ URL being posted to Facebook. The image shown is provided by the Author Gravatar addon, and the description value has been customized in the user’s Social Settings metabox.

The Author Gravatar addon for NGFB Pro provides the following functionality:

  • If the user’s profile contains an email address, and there is a Default Image ID or URL defined in the plugin settings, the Gravatar URL will be included in the user’s profile under the Social Settings metabox.
  • If the user’s profile contains an email address, no Default Image ID or URL has been defined in the plugin settings, and the transient cache feature is enabled, the addon will use the WordPress wp_remote_head() function to verify if a Gravatar image exists for that email address. If a Gravatar image exists for that email address, then it will be included.
  • If the user’s profile contains an email address, no Default Image ID or URL has been defined in the plugin settings, and the transient cache feature is disabled, the Gravatar image will be included, with the “Mystery Man” fallback image.
