About Author Photos

Display your own custom avatars instead of using WordPress’s Gravatar.  Allow your site’s users to upload their own images directly on your site and override all Gravatars.  You can also display avatars anywhere on your site via shortcodes.


Author Photos allows you to set whether or not to override WordPress’s default Gravatar output.  You can check and uncheck this setting at anytime and it will toggle the display of you Author Photos or Gravatars.  This is also where you can set your default Author Photo for users who do not set their own Author Photo.


User Profile

With your user profile page you will be able to set your very own Author Photo.  As long as you have the Override Avatar setting checked this photo will now be shown in place of your Gravatar.  As an admin you are also able to set other user’s Author Photos.



You can display an Author Photo anywhere on your site by using our shortcode nnr_author_photo.

Here are some examples

  • nnr_author_photo name="true" bio="true"
  • nnr_author_photo bio="true" size="full"
  • nnr_author_photo text_wrap="true" align="right"

Below is a table of all available options.
