    Hi,

    How to add the avatar of the author of the post in the archive page and also in the individual post?

    see this link: https://concertista.com.br/avatar/

    Hi Roger,

    For this we’ll have to filter the author meta’s output to add in their avatar.

    Check the PHP snippet provided here – https://wpshowposts.com/support/topic/change-author-link-to-a-plugin-new-created-profile/#post-24736

    Thank you Elvin.

    Do I need to paste this code into function.php?

    Thank you Elvin.

    Do I need to paste this code into function.php?

    You can use Code Snippets plugin if you want. If you must use functions.php, make sure it’s a child theme. If you’re placing it on a parent theme’s functions.php, it can get wiped if you update the theme. 😀

    Hi Elvin, I pasted the code into the Code Snippets plugin but it didn’t work.

    Do I need to do any additional configuration?

    Thanks.

    Can you explain a bit more on what avatar the authors uses? Is it the default avatar of WordPress? Perhaps is it coming from a plugin?

    Also, any chance you can link me to the page you’re working on to inspect if the HTML structure renders? Let us know. 😀

    Hi Elvin,

    I’m using the Simple Local Avatars plugin.
    I also tested the code without the plugin and it didn’t work either.

    How can I send you login information for you to verify HTML?

    Hi Roger,

    I’m not exactly sure how that plugin fetches its image. Any chance you can contact its support about this?

    Once we know how to fetch the image value, we can filter it in on the same filter.

    Note: I did a bit of research but I’m not sure if this is updated – https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/simple-local-avatars/trunk/simple-local-avatars.php#L522

    You can try the get_simple_local_avatar function.

    Hi Elvin,

    I will try to get information about the plugin.

    Thanks!

    Once you get the proper function for that plugin, you can modify this line on the PHP snippet – get_avatar( get_the_author_meta( 'ID' ) ) – with the function that shows the avatar taken from the plugin.
