Gravatars2 WordPress Plugin

Kip from has released a beta version of a WordPress plugin that improves upon Skippy’s original plugin. Here’s the word from his site:


Gravatars2 is a WordPress plugin, modified from Skippy’s Gravatars with the following enhancements:

  • Caches “No Images” and Errors (in addtion to images, of course)
  • Separate cache times for all 3 cache types
  • Greatly speeds up page loads which are slowed down by having to check the server (and removes a LOT of load from the server)
  • Cron supported
    • Unix-type “system cron” job can be used to have all cache refreshes performed by the server, without user interference
    • Skippy’s “WP-Cron” can be used if a true system cron is not available (Gravatars2-WPCron updated for clean integration)
  • “Local” and “Global” gravatars are cached in separate directories
  • Cache management (refresh/delete) split out to “Management” tab
  • Various other things which may or may not be noticeable to you, but are good )
  • —————-quote—————–
