Avatars

  • New feature on Wordpress.com: avatars available since 2006
  • WPMU Avatar widget users will be able to navigate to their Profile page and upload their own photo. The photo will appear next to their comments across your WPMU site, and, if they use my Author Profile Enhanced widget, in their sidebar next to their “About Me” text (demo)
    • based on Profile Pics plugin
    • The "can't upload" issue:
      • Subdirectory fix, subdomain fix (don't work?)
      • Upload form fix (for IE7 only?) open up wp-admin/profiles.php, find the form line about 15 lines down and change it to this: <form name="profile" id="your-profile" action="profile-update.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  • Post Avatar allows choosing from a predetermined set of images
  • Gravatar allows you to generate a gravatar URL complete with rating, size, default, and border options; it also shows LiveJournal userpics in comments
  • Localized comment avatar allows readers to specify a name, e-mail address and/or URL that they will always use when commenting, and to upload and assign an image to this combination of specified values
  • Sexy Comments plugin has avatar support

Notes

  • science blog feeds (from Jason):
looks like this: http://feeds.feedburner.com/scienceblogs/pharyngula
we might consider setting ours up like that as well. e.g. http://feeds.feedburner.com/openwetware/shareyourscience would be the name of mine.
