Looking For Quacks In The Pavement

Gravatar Support Added

For what it’s worth, the comments portion of this journal now supports Gravatar images. Now that they’re owned by the WordPress folks, I figure performance shouldn’t be too much of an issue going forward.

What can I say? It’s an excuse to use “buddy icons” in my journal. I’m a sucker for that sort of thing.

    Gravatar sounds sexy. Seriously though, what does one need to master in order to become the Gravatar?? *grins, ducks and runs for cover*

    I’ve actually created a Gravatar class if you click the link in my name. Loosely coupled and works like a dream – it also has a cache with an expiration date for the avatar – to save on loading times. It can merely load the avatar in locally.

    If I was going to roll my own plugin, great… but I’m not. If I do switch Gravatar plugins it’ll probably be to Shamus Young’s Wavatar rig instead.
