Does not replace WP User Avatar

By ctmartin2020 on April 20, 2022

A lot of people seem to think this replaces the former WP User Avatar... it does not. First, it appears that support is seriously lacking here... look at the numerous support questions left unanswered. A couple that particularly interested me had to do with whether it was possible to allow users to upload their avatar from the frontend. I do not give users access to the Wordpress Admin User page. The old WP User Avatar had a nice simple shortcode which I could use on the frontend. I find there is ZERO documentation here for this plugin and even looking through the code I can find NO shortcode for use on the frontend... so even though those support questions went unanswered, I can see why: there is NO support for user avatar uploads on the frontend. So the bottom line is, if you're looking for something that provides an interface for users on the frontend (like the old WP User Avatar), this plugin will NOT do what you need. One User Avatar does.

Nice and simple

Nice and simple plugin. Great replacement for the corrupt ProfilePress (previously WP User Avatar).

Refugee Seeking replacement

As other reviewers are commenting, I'm here after being tricked by the authors of a different avatar plugin. This is doing the job nicely.

Excellent replacement for rival plugin

By thelogbookwebsite on May 31, 2021

I was using rival plugin WP User Avatar (no "s") that just suddenly transformed into this 'ProfilePress' membership plugin adding a bunch of stuff I didn't need, want or asked for. WP User Avatars (this plugin, with an "s") is light weight, functional and does what it says it will do. Please keep it this way...

Great Replacement for WP User Avatar

By Le Isaac (marg3) on May 30, 2021

Glad I found this lightweight replacement for WP User Avatar (no "s"). That plugin was recently changed extensively and rebranded as ProfilePress. I didn't want or need all the stuff they added and am so happy that I found WP User Avatars (with an "s"). It's such a good replacement and it does just what I need, which is to allow me to create custom avatars for my users and authors. Great work!

Light & stable - keep up the good work!

@johnjamesjacoby, I really hope you will continue to maintain and update "WP User Avatars" now that its main rival has turned into the unwanted and bloated "ProfilePress" - 40,000 new users need you.

Superb, works with Elementor author box

By laymonk on March 9, 2021

I use UM, and users know how to upload their pix to their profile, but then their articles they author is unable to show their profile pix (in author boxes) because WP and plugins that offer author boxes only look in gravatar for image sources. Another similarly named plugin (with 400k downloads) is unable to do what this plugin does so straight-forwardly. I am loving JJJ plugins, and learning from them.
