Why have a boring static default Avatar when you can have a Gravatar? What is a Gravatar you ask? Its a Globally Recognized Avatar. On the Gravatar Website, a user can register and assign one or more avatars to their account. These avatars can then be used around the world on Gravatar ready websites without any necessary interaction required by the user.

vBGravatar brings Gravatars to your vBulletin community without any mess or fuss. Other Gravatar solutions require fake avatars to be created and other messy workarounds. vBGravatar only requires that you turn it on within the Admin Control Panel. It will do all the other work for you after installation.

With vBGravatar and Gravatar support, your users can quickly and easily use the same avatar on your community that they use on many WordPress blogs and many other software packages. You are allowing them to preserve their online identity.


Installation Instructions
1) Import the product file for vBGravatar as linked below.
2) Turn it on. Go to vBulletin Options -> vBulletin Options -> User Profile Options and turn on vBGravatars.

How It Works
Gravatars are chosen by a hash of the user's email address. vBGravatar creates that hash for you and requests the avatar from their site. If the user doesn't have a Gravatar account, it will select a random avatar that is generated just for that user. Currently vBGravatar is limited to rated G avatars with a size of 80 pixels square or smaller.

If a user already has an avatar selected on your site, that will still be used. This is for those users that do not select an avatar.

vBGravatar currently shows in postbit, postbit_legacy and the member's list.

To Do

1) Add more options including:
  • ratings
  • default avatar group
  • size
  • ability to specify a static default avatar
2) Display Gravatars in more locations.

Change List
1.0.1 - Released. Fixed a bug with avatar retrieval.
1.0 - Released

Support
Full support will be given to vBCodex members. Please post any issues in the project tracker here:

Yes. That is one of the first planned upgrades. The next release will probably be downloadable from my site on Monday and then made available here on Wednesday or Thursday.

Nice work! Installed on mousepad.mouseplanet.com. I'd love it if "use my gravatar" was a selectable option on the UserCP Avatar page.

I changed the Gravatar "d" parameter (what gets returned when the submitted email hash has no matching Gravatar) to a local blank.gif because my users don't want default avatars.
