Do you want to remove user avatars on your BuddyPress site? Maybe, for some reason, you don't want to display avatars on your website. As BuddyPress comes default with gravatars, wouldn't you like to have a plugin that will remove these? The plugin Remove Avatars might be the answer to your prayers.

This plugin is very simple in that all it promises to do is remove avatars from user profiles. It also removes the part where you add an avatar when signing up for an account and creating groups.

I tested this plugin and installed and activated it on our site. True enough, avatars were removed! Our site became avatar-less, which needs a bit of getting used to. But if this is the look that you are aiming for, then you surely won't be disappointed.

This plugin is very effective in all its simplicity. Its purpose is very simple and it does it well. As I mentioned, having no avatars on your BuddyPress site takes getting used to. But those interested in this plugin don't want avatars in the first place, so this plugin is just right for them.
