My b2evolution Version:

Using 4.0.3 with a slightly modified "GoodLivingBlogTheme" skin.

I would like to stop avatars from showing in the comments of my blog posts. I've gone through all the files I can think of, but I can't find where the code controlling this is. Can someone please tell me?

Thanks heaps :D

Not sure if there is a setting for this but you can remove avatars by editing file /skins/_item_comment.inc.php.

Find:

$Comment->avatar();

And replace with:

//$Comment->avatar();

Next time when you cant find sth in your skin folder, check for the common /skins folder.b2 checks if the required skin file exists in your skin folder, if not it reads it from the parent common skins folder.For example for a b2 skin to function, only a single index.main.php file (and a css file ofc) is enough, it would read the rest from there.

The avatars are of course still visible in the admin panel.

There really should be an option to disable avatars.

avatars used to be better of as a plugin. like couple more things that are bundled with the 3.x and above which was the main reason behind the unrest that caused some dev's to quit.

It's another bug actually. To fix it edit /inc/comments/model/_comment.class.php:367

function get_avatar( $size = 'crop-64x64', $class = 'bCommentAvatar', $params = array() )
{
	global $Settings, $Plugins, $default_avatar;

	if( ! $Settings->get('allow_avatars') ) return;

Fixed in CVS
