Avatar: Revision

Last updated by Mmeal

The user avatar represents a user (or a group) throughout the site. By default, this includes a context-sensitive menu that allows you to perform actions on the user it belongs to wherever you see their avatar. For example, you can add them as a friend, send an internal message, and more. Each plugin can add to this context menu, so its full contents will vary depending on the functionality active in the current Elgg site.

Users can use Elgg's built in avatar editor to crop an uploaded profile photo into something they would like to use as their site wide avatar.
