Preguntas frecuentes

I’m still having problems

While this plugin has been tested with common server setups, some enviroments could cause an issue.

If you are having a problem deactivate all plugins other than this one and then switch you theme to TwentyTweleve (or similar). If things then work, then the issue is with a 3rd party theme or plugin.

If things are still not functioning incorrectly then proceed to reporting an issue. The ideal method is via GitHub issues.


Doesn't work with get_avatar_url

WordPress 4.2.0 brought along with it get_avatar_url() that can be used to retrieve the URL of the user’s avatar. Unfortunately this plugin doesn’t seem to work with this function as it continues to return the default gravatar profile image even when get_avatar renders the correct image.

Other than this, this plugin is everything I needed. Thanks heaps!
