In order to do that, we can take advantage of 2 of the hooks (events) available in the extension.

First, we need to be able to add the field type in the list of fields available for output and second, we need to set how the output will present itself for each item.

With this tutorial, you will be able to add:

  • the Gravatar of the author (version for LNEP v4.6+ only).
