Add-On Type(s)



This plugin facilitates the use of Gravatar images in your ExpressionEngine templates. It provides an easy interface to all of the options currently available for Gravatar images. You can even run a conditional statement to check if a Gravatar image exists for an email address.

Single Tag

The single tag syntax does not have a closing tag. This will just return the Gravatar URL. It can be used like this:

<img src="{exp:ce_gravatar:single email="software@causingeffect.com"}" alt="" />

Tag Pair

The tag pair syntax has a closing tag. This allows you to pass in tag data (the data between the opening and closing tags) to customize your HTML output.

{exp:ce_gravatar:pair email="software@causingeffect.com" default="404"}
  {if gravatar}
    {!-- a Gravatar image exists for the provided email address --}
    <img src="{gravatar}" alt="" />
    {!-- no Gravatar, so let's create our own default image --}
    {exp:ce_img:single src="/images/example/cow_square.jpg" max="80"}


Check out the Parameters and Variables documentation pages for more options.

I had this up and working in less than two minutes. Perfect.

A really great use of this is to fall back to the EE profile photo/avatar if no Gravatar is found.

This works a treat! It’s easy to use and has plenty of options. It’s now my addon of choice for adding Gravatars to EE.

No fuss, no mess way of pulling Gravatars on your standard entry loop or even via Solspace User module. Ex-CE-llent!
