I need to determine if there is an avatar available for a user – either a gravatar or a local avatar. Is there a way to do that?

The profile image is displayed by the standard get_avatar() function, provided by WordPress. March 23, 2013 at 1:55 am #1437 cheekybootsParticipant Post count: 7 No. get_avatar() by itself only returns gravatars. Never mind, I searched your codebase. You are filtering get_avatar() in the wpuf-functions.php file on line 553 so it uses wpuf_get_avatar to look for a local avatar first.

By default, wpuf plugin try to get this Avatar (if its been using or not) , then try to get Gravatar . Cheers.

It's filtering the get_avatar function. I am looking for a custom field user_avatar, if it exists, I am showing the local avatar.
