Add WYSIWYG controls to a particular custom field


As of WordPress 3.2, this implementation can be finicky – mostly an issue with inserting images into the right editor.

However, WordPress 3.3 (as of this note, is in beta 2) in getting an Editor API which will make adding 2nd (and 3rd…) editors to a single page much more reliable. If you don’t see me post an update by the end of the year – 3.3 has a tentative release date of sometime near the end of November 2011 – ping me here or on twitter @trepmal.

Customize Default WordPress Avatar

Update: I recommend using my completely new version Add New Default Avatar. Click the link to go check out the details. This plugin is no longer being maintained.

Not happy with the default avatar options built into WordPress? Neither was I (actually, I never gave it much thought – someone else pointed it out to me).

So, I put my fingers to work and made a plugin that will allow you to a new picture and set it as the fall-back options for commenters without gravatars. Other features include:

  • Enable/Disable without activating/reactivating
  • WPMU compatible
