Enable custom avatars to add some fun to your comment section
Comment Avatars Admin Options
Enabling comment avatars is simple. By default, the comment system uses a service called Gravatars. Not everyone has a Gravatar, so this functionality will allow all users to have their own avatars.
Gravatars and Privacy: Gravatars can potentially leak privacy information if your Gravatar is public and you attempt to leave an anonymous comment using your regular email address. Custom avatars hopes to solve this issue.
You can disable/enable avatars for Logged-in users and Anonymous users.
Further options allow you to customize the avatar size, and change the label that prompts the user to change their avatar.
Selecting an Avatar
When leaving a comment, you and your users can select an avatar to associate with your comment.
Logged-in Users: Setting/editing an Avatar will change your avatar everywhere.
Avatars in the Comment Section
User selected avatars will show up in the comments section.
Editing Avatars Inline in the Comments Section
Logged-in users can edit their avatars at any time by clicking on their avatar in the comments section.
Editing Avatars: at this time there is no option in the user profile section to change avatars for logged-in users.
An admin or someone who can moderate comments can also change a commenter's avatar in the comments section in the admin.
