I'm using this custom function to get the default avatar from my server instead of gravatar:

    function custom_avatar($avatar_defaults){
        $new_default_icon = 'http://localhost/gv/wp-content/images/mystery-man.png';
        $avatar_defaults[$new_default_icon] = 'Custom Avatar';
        return $avatar_defaults;

but the custom avatar is not showing up, when I view source code then the src of the image look like this:


Why does my image src relative to gravatar here? How can I fix this problem?

  • Whereever you want display your custom avatar, do something like this in that template of your active them: <div id="author-avatar"> <?php _e('<img src="'.get_bloginfo('stylesheet_directory').'/images/admin-avatar.jpg" width="48" height="48" alt="' . get_the_author() . '" />');?> </div><!-- #author-avatar -->

just use the function get_avatar, $default is for your custom default.

<?php echo get_avatar( $id_or_email, $size, $default, $alt, $args ); ?>
