Implement Method In Comment Loop

  • <?php if(function_exists(“MyAvatars”)) : ?><?php MyAvatars(); ?><?php else: ?>
  • <?php $pathtotheme = get_bloginfo(‘stylesheet_directory’); ?> <!– this is so you can input your own site no-avatar image rather than default one from gravatar –><?php if(!empty($comment -> comment_author_email)) {$md5 = md5($comment -> comment_author_email);$default = urlencode(“$pathtotheme/images/no-avatar.gif“);echo “<img src=’
    $md5&size=48&default=$default’ alt=’commenter’ />”;}?>
  • <?php endif; ?>

that’s it..easy right. Bold text in code above are editable according to your images location and avatar size. In order to make the gravatar and mybloglog avatar size the same, open your style.css and add this line to bottom of your css or any location you desired

  • img.MyAvatars
    height: 48px;
    width: 48px;

change the bold height and width to the same dimension size as your gravatar.
