Showcase your Profile pic in WordPress Blog
March 18, 2017 Sanjay Dabhoya

A website must be displaying of a mix of efficient texts and images. Particularly, for discussions and blogging, it is vital to a man who had composed it.

Since long time we have been posting blogs on site without Gravatar and not revealing genuine creator. However, as everybody tries to adapt up to the latest trends, we endeavor to help you out by sending the message of the on-going patterns. And, we have a new trend that is going in the industry presently, Gravatar.

Let’s have a look at the advantages of using Gravatar. Here are some important tips to use Gravatar right away.

Gravatar is a “Globally Recognized Avatar” plugin. You can easily showcase yourself from site to site in comments and blog author. All you need is to create an account, upload your profile picture and wait for few minutes to recognize your picture with an attached email address.

Yes, this profile picture can actually prove your branding and reader loyalty.

Benefits of using Gravatar:

  • Builds your author brand
  • Redirects visitors to same writer blogs
  • Increases your authority and authenticity
  • Professional profile picture showcase

But, in some cases, some of your website authors, guest authors or end users don’t know about this facility. So, we must guide them to use this great feature of WordPress.

More questions – Why should they take interest in this matter? Why should create a new account just for an image showcase? Why should embed their email address on any other websites as well?

Just because of all these reasons, you might lose the beauty of your website.

Let me give you the easiest solution for it.

For example,
Here we used our Blog Designer PRO plugin’s Brit Co Blog Template with Gravatar images.

Have you noticed that some posts missing Gravatar images? That is the reason it comes with a default ‘Mystery Man’ avatar. We have done some research to fill up the gap between bloggers and as a solution, we found some useful plugins that will give you Gravatar image control with WordPress website.

Custom User Profile Photo – WordPress Plugin

Custom User Profile Photo is an essential plugin to give facility to end users as one can upload their own profile pictures instead of Gravatar image. And, that profile picture will be available within blog author showcase, comment author showcase, etc. and similarly it will recognize with a current WordPress site. Users can use various profile pictures on different WordPress websites.

WP First Letter Avatar – WordPress Plugin

WP First Letter Avatar includes a set of beautiful, colorful letter avatars in many sizes. Optimal size will be chosen by the plugin in order to display high-quality avatar instead of default one. This plugin might be a single plugin solution for your WordPress site if you are fighting for Gravatars for your blog authors.

As per the image below, you can see that I have implemented both above plugins with my blog website. Now, it’s looking more beautiful and pretty as compared to the old one.

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
