Gravajax Registration


Adds a Gravatar to your blog’s registration page that is updated via AJAX when a user types in their email and moves away from the email field, by tabbing or clicking out.

If no Gravatar is available, a message is displayed telling the user that they can configure one on the Gravatar site.

Props to Otto for bringing the 404 to my attention.


  1. Download and Unzip
  2. Upload to your wp-content/plugins directory
  3. Go to the Plugins page of your admin screen and look for ‘Gravajax Registration’ and press ‘activate’


Nothing happens after I’ve typed the email in

The script only runs when a user moves away from, or blurs, the email field.

I’ve checked that, but still nothing happens

If you’ve redefined the path to wp-content, this might be the problem. Get in touch with me at alex at epicalex dot com.
