How to get Vanillicons for Wordpress

edited February 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


I know this is not a question strictly for vanilla forums, but there was no way to ask questions on the official site and it's made by the lovely people here anyway.

Is there anyway I can make auto-generated vanillicons appear on wordpress (buddypress, bbpress, etc) instead of the standard Gravatars?

Gavatars are boring - Vanillacons are fun :)

    I would switch out the image sprite and/or the images for ones you want to use.

    Also remember that like Gravatar, these icons are generated per user with their email so it follows them to other sites which may support
    The only thing you really have control over are the default images, at least with Gravatar there is a default image in case they don't have Gravatar.

    added to the gravatar url. You would have to develop/modify a wordpress gravitar plugin.
