Today’s Sweet Plugin is Gravatar Widget, a plugin that simply adds a widget to your WordPress site (therefore one of my favorite kinds of plugins). Gravatar Widget will display the Gravatar information for anyone you choose in the sidebar, which makes it particularly useful for showing off your blog’s author(s).
The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.
Gravatar Widget allows you to select either an author from your WordPress site, or to enter in a Gravatar user’s email manually. You can choose the image size, the text that accompanies it, as well as where the Gravatar should link to. For most users, it’s likely all they could want to identify themselves in their sidebar (or greater widget area).
Also, and this is particularly for the developers out there: even if Gravatar Widget isn’t exactly what you need in your sidebar, it’s certainly a good jumping off point for crafting something custom.
