    [wordpress] Comment avatars ( from a select choice)

    Hi,

    I was wondering if a there's currently a plug-in available which allows people to add an avatar from a selection (chosen by the author of course) of images when they make a comment. Kinda like the following plugin but for comments:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-avatar/

    I've had no luck finding such a plugin. Does anyone know of one?

    Thanks

    By default wordpress supports Gravatars which allows the user to upload an image that will follow them around the net by their email address on sites that support it. Though you will have to add the necessary code to your theme for them to display.

    Not sure if that will work for you.

    That's not really what I'm looking for.
    I want them to be able to choose the avatar themselves, and then it gets posted with their comment. I looked at how its done, but I dont know php well enough to do that.

    Well with gravatars they do pick the avatar themselves. They upload it from their hard drive to the gravatar site assign an email address to it, give it a rating (G-X) then when they visit your (or someone else's gravatar enabled WP site) it appears in comments they leave based on the email they enter assuming the sites design has accommodated gravatars.

    Okay, let me put it more simply. The form that they use to submit comments, they can pick the avatar right then and there. There will be 5 avatars that will be hosted locally... Then when the comment form is submitted, the avatar they select will be associated with that particular comment. I tried looking into the wp-comments.php file and trying to mess with the php functions, but I don't know enough about PHP to do that
