I'm using the Simple Local Avatars plugin so my bbPress forumgoers can upload their own avatars. Now, when a user logs in, I want his/her avatar to display next to the relevant links (i.e. logout, edit profile, etc.). I tried the call below but it only keeps showing the default mystery man gravatar.
<?php echo get_avatar( $current_user->user_login, 48 ); ?>
Is there something I overlooked? How can I get the user's uploaded avatar to show up?
