It would be nice if ikiwiki, particularly comments (but also, ideally, recentchanges) supported user avatar icons.
Update: Done for comments, but not for anything else, and the directive below would be a nice addition. --Joey
Idea is to add a directive that displays a small avatar image for a user. Pass it a user's the email address, openid, username, or the md5 hash of their email address:
[[!avatar email@example.com]] [[!avatar http://joey.kitenet.net/]] [[!avatar user]] [[!avatar hash]]
These directives can then be hand-inserted onto pages, or more likely, included in eg, a comment post via a template.
An optional second parameter can be included, containing additional options to pass in the gravatar url. For example, this asks for a smaller gravatar, and if a user does not have a gravatar, uses a cute auto-generated "wavatar" avatar.
[[!gravatar firstname.lastname@example.org "size=40&default=wavatar"]]
gravitar_options setting in the setup file can be used to
specify additional options to pass. So for example if you want
to use wavatars everywhere, set it to "default=wavatar".
