    Trying to make my avatar display next to posts. If I put the following in single.php in the loop it works for the post only when reading it.

    echo get_avatar( get_the_author_email(), ’80’ );

    I want this to show globally (main page, blog page, etc) and have tried adding same line above to a few other php files but no dice. Any thoughts?

    Hey Jarian, do you have a mock up how you want it to look? Or maybe a close example from another site?

    As per usual with Canvas there are tons of ways to make this happen…

    Cheers,

    Thanks Nick!

    Trying to do something like the following:

    For blog list, see the left hand side with picture and comments
    http://www.woothemes.com/blog/

    When reading blog, see the left hand side with picture, comments, and social media

    Hi Jarian,

    Ok, so I have thought about this and have you thought about using a 3 column layout with the avatar and icons in the far left side bar?

    You could the use the Layouts feature in Canvas to adjust the width of the 3 column layout.

    It would then be a matter of creating 2 widgets in the left side bar. One for the avatar and one for the social sharing icons. Looks as though are using http://sharrre.com/. A quick hunt around and I came across this: https://github.com/paulund/sharrre-wordpress-plugin

    You could then use a sticky widget plugin like this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/q2w3-fixed-widget/ to make it scroll down the page with the user.

    Looks like there would be a lot of tweaking needed to make it look exactly like WooThemes though.

    If you we could crack this together it would make a great tutorial!

    Let me know how you get on,

    Nick

    Thanks! Will check them out. Also been playing around CSS to do this.
