Plugin Description

Upload a new avatar and set as the default avatar and allow users to upload their own avatar and override the default.

Admin setting allows only use of local avatars; prevents use of Gravatars; if user doesn’t upload their own avatar, a local default is used instead.

This plugin is multisite compatible; each site will need settings to be configured in the admin dashboard.


  • Download the latest release of the plugin from GitHub.
  • Upload the entire zip file using the Plugins upload function in your ClassicPress admin panel.
  • Activate the plugin.
  • Configure relevant settings via the configuration page in the admin control panel (azurecurve menu).
