My WordPress plugin, Gravatar Signup Encouragement, got an update. This version adds to new things under the hood and in some situations it may cause some issues, so here is what’s changed.
Previously, plugin depended on
allow_url_fopen to be enabled so that it can check if gravatar exists. Thanks to report by wp.org user jlencion, plugin will now check if
allow_url_fopen is enabled and if not, it’ll fall back to WordPress HTTP API.
After another report on wp.org forum by user Parakoos, plugin now checks for existence of gravatar of the same rating as chosen in site’s settings.
Please report if there are any issues with this new changes.
