Simpler CSS

This Simpler CSS plugin allows WordPress µ hosts to enable users to add custom stylesheets to their blogs.

The plugin creates a new menu item under the Appearance menu that allows users to enter custom CSS code that will be injected into the section of their blog. The CSS is stored in the blog’s options table and is filtered through a standard PHP function before being outputted, preventing the user from inserting malicious code into the header.

For non-WordPress µ blogs, this plugin provides an easy way to modify the appearance of installed themes or plugins (such as Sociable) without modifying theme/plugin files that may change with upgrades. No write access is required to any files for Simpler CSS to function, as it stores its data in the database’s options table — and that means theme/plugin upgrades won’t impact your custom CSS.

Author Avatars List

This must have plugin if you have multiable authors or what to show a list of commetaters.

This plugin makes it easy to display lists of user avatars on your (multiuser) blog. It also allows to insert single avatars for blog users or any email address into a post or page. (Great for displaying an image of someone you’re talking about.)

Avatar lists can be inserted into your sidebar by adding a widget or into posts/pages by using a shortcode. The plugin comes with a tinymce editor plugin which makes inserting shortcodes very easy.

Both shortcode and widget can be configured to…

■Show a custom title (widget only)
■Only show specific user groups and/or hide certain users
■Limit the number of users shown
■Change the sort order of users or show in random order
■Adjust the size of user avatars
■Optionally show a user’s name or biography
■Show users from the current blog, all blogs or a selection of blogs (on WPMU/Multisite)
■Group users by their blog (when showing from multiple blogs), and show the blog name above each grouping (experimental feature).
The plugin makes use of built in wordpress (core) functions to retrieve user information and get avatars.

Single user avatars can be inserted using the show_avatar shortcode and configured to…

■Adjust the size of the user avatar.
■Align the avatar left, centered or right.

Hikari Unicornified Gravatars

Gravatar is a nice service, it allows us, as users, to define avatars related to our emails, and then those avatars are used everywhere we comment and participate, automatically.

But not everybody know or bother with Gravatars, and when we have a site we end up with a bunch of comments with the same default avatar, for every commenter that didn’t register on Gravatar, or in anonymous comments.

Hikari Unicornified Gravatars lets us “unicornify” these avatars, providing some more colors to our beloved sites :D
