I would like to add avatars to my users. I have a limited group on a site I'm working. Uploading isn't really a problem we can just put the images on the server and use URL's to set our avatars(Only about 5 people will actually be able to post.). That said how would I add a field to the user page they can fill out with a image URL that can then be fetched later. I know you can fetch user data via the
the_author_meta(); function but how do I add a custom user field that can them be filled out and put into the database that is the associated with the user?
Or would if just be better to use something that already exist like the
aim field for example since none of us will be filling that out.
