Vine Type Content Management with Standards in Mind

21 Sep 2006


  • $gravatar_default
  • behavioral
associated template variable

Specify the full URL of an image to display when an email address is not associated with a gravatar.

  • Gravatars are generated from email addresses, and they appear only for folks who have registered with and uploaded an image (avatar) for themselves.

  • Since not everyone has a gravatar, sites have the option of specifying an alternate image to display.

  • If you leave this entry blank, the site will return a transparent 1x1 pixel gif image for email addresses that do not have an associated gravatar.

  • And, of course I should mention that your comment form must collect an email address from visitors if you want to use gravatars.
