I have a number of clients who routinely request to have their (or one of their authors) gravatar positioned beside (or near) the post title on a single post page? Also, how would I include it in a category archive page which displays a list of 5 articles with snippets?
What is the easiest way to do this? Thanks All!

I wouldn't have a problem editing the functions.php file. Can you provide the code?

If its not code, then the edits required to the functions.php file you mentioned to enable the functionality I describe.

Ok, I'm not a programmer so I can't decipher this. Let's try the other avenue. What would I need to add to the before_post_title hook to get the functionality I'm looking for?

I don’t have that code memorized. I imagine a google search would bring it up though.
oh dear...not helpful...and just a tad sarcastic methinks... most people come here when they can't find answers on google...!

Maybe this will help. It's from Nick in reponse to my email inquiring as to how much support I should expect or not expect as the case may be as a Pro-Plus member. This was prompted by this ticket.
Take it for what it is.

Oh and thanks Debs! I didn't see your link at the bottom. I came up with a different solution so all is good. Thanks again!

hi mike - glad you got that sorted!December 9, 2012 at 1:32 pm #4023
actually mike...could you share what you did here? thanks!December 9, 2012 at 1:48 pm #4025
I did what SoZo suggested and googled "Using Gravatars in WordPress" and came across Bill Richardson's blog, a well respected developer in both Genesis and Thesis. Bill had an article on this at http://www.billerickson.net/using-gravatars-in-wordpress/
I kinda took the long way around but Bill made it easy to understand and since Thesis has recently released version 2, I bought the developer version. It is a lot different than Genesis but extremely powerful for the person like me who is not a novice but isn't a full-fledged developer either. I like owning both Genesis & Thesis as each framework has its strengths and weaknesses. Another tool in the toolset.
All that said, my client was more than happy so all ended well.
