MB User Avatar is a WordPress plugin that provides you with a simple way to add custom avatars for users. Since WordPress only supports Gravatar and doesn’t allow users to upload/use their own images as avatars, this plugin will help you solve this problem.
Once you installed this plugin, you’ll see a new option in your profile or when you edit a user to choose a Custom Profile Picture, as shown in the screenshot above. After selecting a picture, it will be used everywhere on your site in the place of the old gravatar (comments, author info, etc.).
MB User Avatatar is built on top of Meta Box and its extensions, and it’s available for the Lifetime Bundle only.
In order to use this plugin, you need Meta Box installed and activated. The necessary extensions are already bundled in the plugin, so you don’t need to install and activate them separately. The extensions used in this plugin:
- MB User Meta
You can use it with other extensions without any problem. It’s also bundled in the Meta Box AIO (All-In-One) so you don’t need to install another plugin.
