WordPress Consultant & WPML Specialist

I was born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, have been living in Beijing, China since 1998 with a brief 2 year intermezzo in Valencia, Spain (2008-2010) and recently moved to Shanghai, China.

Naturally I speak a few languages and I think that is (part of) the reason that when I rolled into WordPress website development, internationalisation and localisation became very important to me.

It is therefore almost no wonder that apart from being WordPress Consultant, I am also WPML Specialist (WPML is the plugin to give WordPress websites multilingual functionality).

I am the founder and Lead Developer of Senlin Online and if I am not busy with client work, I spend my time fine-tuning my WordPress Starter theme soblossom, developing plugins or blogging via WP TIPS.

To give back to the community and help people with their various problems, I always spend part of my time in the various WordPress related groups on LinkedIn; I even have my own WordPress related group there, the WordPress Helpdesk.

I am proud to be able to say that I have been a Core Contributor for a few WordPress versions now, including 4.0.

You can read more about me and/or contact me via the following media:

@Rarst cool to know that it works from mu-plugin level! Alternatively I added the complete filter below.

comment Which core file is responsible for gravatars?
the Gravatars used inside the Dashboard are then still loaded and still causing the pageload to lag, because these calls first have to time out. Same goes for everything loaded from Google (in the Dashboard), such as the Open Sans font. Running sites from inside the GFW (Great FireWall of China) is much more problematic than you think.

@Rarst this no longer works, it actually causes a Fatal Error: Cannot redeclare get_avatar() (previously declared in /path/wp-includes/pluggable.php:2197)

comment How can you change default color scheme in a Twenty Fifteen child theme?
You're welcome :) Now you only need to find a solution to make sure that not only your customised color scheme is selected, but also that those colors are used by default. For that to work properly you need to look at the twentyfifteen/inc/customizer.php file. On line 160 there is if ( ! function_exists( 'twentyfifteen_get_color_scheme' ) ), which means you can call the twentyfifteen_get_color_scheme() function from your child theme and play around with it. Same goes for line 180, the twentyfifteen_get_color_scheme_choices() function.

So I went ahead and did a bit of puzzling on a local install and found a way to replace the default color scheme. I edited my answer above to reflect the solution.
