Prologue Theme & Local Avatar (9 posts)

    I am trying to get the Prologue theme [http://wordpress.com/blog/2008/01/28/introducing-prologue/]
    to use local avatars [using http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/Avatar instead of gravatars.

    I use the following code: <?php avatar_comment_display($comment->comment_author_url,'32','avatar-id','avatar-class'); ?>
    ---and replaced ---
    <?php echo prologue_get_avatar( $user->ID, $user->user_email, 48 ); ?>
    ---in post-form.php---

    The problem is that it shows the default avatar for all posts. Any suggestions?

    if you already have access to the premium package from wpmudev gbishop, you should be able to download the latest Farms themepack, and I'm sure if they've got prologue in there it will be pre-configured to work with their avatar system.

    i've been working on it. it works, but there are 3 issues i haven't fixed yet
    1)only members of your blog can use the twitter functionality. and they have to be editors, at that. no other role even sees the post box. i'm working on it.
    2)avatar in the post section: i can't seem to get the avatar function to work right. it works just like the original poster here says. i thought about just making that the avatar of the blog the theme is running on... but then i thought that didn't make any damn sense, at all.
    3)the updates are really posts. i'd prefer they were something different, like comments or something. posts show up in the recent posts plugin, sitewide feed, etc. I don't want crappy little posts like hey, whatssup, b!tch in my feed. and this would happen to me cuz i got strange friends. so then i thought i could just make the blog private and use some sort of parser to display that blog's updates somewhere... and then my head began to hurt and i needed some alcohol. it's a vicious cycle.

    Yep, those are pretty much exactly the issues I ran into with it :(

    I guess you could add a function into the theme to mark the blog "mature" if you use the theme so that it doesn't show up in those lists. I didn't do that with a function in the theme, but I did mark it that way in the admin on the one that I am using for all members.

    sorry to bring up an old thread, but does anybody know if there were every any advancements made to this? I'd love to implement the prologue theme into my installation of WPMU.

    Thanks
