WP User Avatar


WordPress currently only allows you to use custom avatars that are uploaded through Gravatar. WP User Avatar enables you to use any photo uploaded into your Media Library as an avatar. This means you use the same uploader and library as your posts. No extra folders or image editing functions are necessary.

WP User Avatar also lets you:

Upload your own Default Avatar in your WP User Avatar settings.
Show the user’s Gravatar avatar or Default Avatar if the user doesn’t have a WP User Avatar image.
Disable Gravatar avatars and use only local avatars.

Add WP User Avatar to your own profile edit page

You can use the [avatar_upload] shortcode to add a standalone uploader to any page. It’s best to use this uploader by itself and without other profile fields.

If you’re building your own profile edit page with other fields, WP User Avatar is automatically added to the show_user_profile and edit_user_profile hooks. If you’d rather have WP User Avatar in its own section, you could add another hook:

do_action('edit_user_avatar', $current_user);

Then, to add WP User Avatar to that hook and remove it from the other hooks outside of the administration panel, you would add this code to the functions.php file of your theme:

function my_avatar_filter() {
  // Remove from show_user_profile hook
  remove_action('show_user_profile', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_action_show_user_profile'));
  remove_action('show_user_profile', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_media_upload_scripts'));

  // Remove from edit_user_profile hook
  remove_action('edit_user_profile', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_action_show_user_profile'));
  remove_action('edit_user_profile', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_media_upload_scripts'));

  // Add to edit_user_avatar hook
  add_action('edit_user_avatar', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_action_show_user_profile'));
  add_action('edit_user_avatar', array('wp_user_avatar', 'wpua_media_upload_scripts'));

// Loads only outside of administration panel
if(!is_admin()) {

HTML Wrapper

You can change the HTML wrapper of the WP User Avatar section by using the functions wpua_before_avatar and wpua_after_avatar.
I bought the premium version but the plugin is not behaving properly. The support is very unresponsive and slow. I had to uninstall it and search for an alternative.
