Default Avatar in Blogger Threaded Comments
It seems like all the hype on the new threaded comment system is cooling off. But I've decided to keep throwing comment-related tutorials, since few of my previous comment-related tutorials have gotten obsolete. Gotta make up for those posts now, don't I? Right, now.. Blog reader John Bolch has given me a fantastic idea. He said Blogger should give a default avatar to those comments left by readers with no profile images, including anonymous readers. Right now, it'll just show a blank dull image if the user doesn't have a profile image set up. Instead of waiting for Blogger to fix that, let's put a temporary fix up there, shall we? In this post, I'm gonna show you how you can give a default profile image/avatar/whatever-you-wanna-call-it to those avatar-less users.
