Thanks for this excellent post, Kim! I was just on the verge of installing Simple Local Avatars, and since we are using Theme My Login, it’s nice to have been steered away in the nick of time. I’m going to give Basic User Avatars a try.

Kim. I would like to add a “badge” to Charter Member profiles (in addition to their photo) to identify them to other members as such. This is a feature I need to control.

Hi Kim! I’ve run into some incredible conflicts with some avatar plugins I’ve tried, and I haven’t emerged from the thicket yet. I’m definitely experiencing a “clash of the titans” after installing Buddypress, just as you wrote above.

I just wanted to see if you have any updates to this excellent article – which avatar plugins would you currently recommend?

Thanks!

Maggie

For changing avatar styles in your website you can use Avatar Effects plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/avatars-effects/). It’s a very helpful plugin for every site owners… You can have so many different styles for user avatar without writing any css code. Also you can write your custom css if you want…

Hi Kim. I tried adding your code to resolve the simple avatar problem running with PMP but it just crashed my site. Wondering if I am doing anything wrong? Thanks. Matt.
