Configuring an Avatar for the Staff Online Widget

Admin users can add a custom avatar above their names in the Staff Online widget in the Admin Area Dashboard. This image will also display in the upper right-hand corner of the Admin Area for the Accounts menu.

Admin avatars use the Gravatar service. If WHMCS cannot find a matching Gravatar account, it displays a silhouette icon.

To change your avatar, register a Gravatar account using the WHMCS admin user's email address:

1. To find the admin user account's email address, click the profile icon in the upper right-hand corner and select My Account. The email address will appear in this information.

2. Register an account with Gravatar and set a profile image. For more information, see Gravatar's documentation.

 3. Go back to the WHMCS Admin Area Dashboard and refresh the page. The Staff Online widget and the Account menu will display the new Gravatar image:
