The default size for WordPress’s avatars is 48px…pretty small. A lot of sites these days are using much larger avatars, a trend that I really like. I wanted the avatars on this site to be larger, so I did a little searching and found that (of course) WordPress has a built in parameter that allows us to make this change easily.
Simply add the following parameter to your
Where x is the size in pixels you want your avatar to be.
Note: for those of you who aren’t as familiar with editing WordPress theme files etc. this line is typically found in your theme’s folder in the file named “comments.php”.
We now have a new avatar (fig 1.0) with the dimensions of 100 x 100 pixels….sexy!
