Great plugin, BUT... hideous icon.

By aszx on March 22, 2023

This plugin is an example of a great developer with no respect for web designers work. The plugin icon is simply horrendous, unjustifiable.
Not happy in damaging our back-end design right on the main sidebar menu, you will find it on every time you have to edit a text... don't know why the developer thinks we need to add the user image on every text.

Please developer, do it right, do it beautifully.

Sweet plugin that gets the job done!

I was up and running with this plugin in a matter of seconds. This functionality should be in WP by default - NO ONE uses gravatars! 🤣

It does exactly what it says

nice replacement of wp user avatar who turned to the dark side

Thanks for this fork! Works great!

By utrenkner on August 15, 2022

As so many of us, I was bitten by the change of direction in WP User Avatar. I re-installed the latest "good" version and just did not upgrade it for months. Today, I took the time to look around for a replacement and found this excellent fork. Works like a charm. Many, many thanks for providing this plugin. If you want to replace your old WP User Avatar installation, please read the warning on the Installation tab. I followed the simple steps and all existing profile images have been kept! If possible by any means, please remove the old plugin via FTP/SSH - no need to have old code sitting around on your server. It may always contain security issues that might be exploitable even when the plugin is deactivated.

Great, thank you

Former user of the WP User Avatar plugin until it got hijacked. Thanks for helping us all out with this fork.

So far so good

I added to woocomerce account edit page with this hook: function woocommerce_edit_account_form_start() { echo do_shortcode('[avatar_upload]'); } add_action( 'woocommerce_before_edit_account_form', 'woocommerce_edit_account_form_start' ); Worked like a charm :)

Just doesn't work for me

No avatar field added to the user profile page

Nice one 5 Stars
