Note: Do take backup of your theme before you try this.

01. Upload a 48 x 48px image to your theme directory.

02. In your WordPress Admin panel go to Appearance => Editor.

02. Then choose functions.php file from right hand side and add below code:

add_filter( 'avatar_defaults', 'newgravatar' );

function newgravatar ($avatar_defaults) {
$myavatar = get_bloginfo(‘template_directory’) . ‘/images/tutzonegravatar.jpg‘;
$avatar_defaults[$myavatar] = “TutZone“;
return $avatar_defaults;

03. In above code change /images/tutzonegravatar.gif to the location/name of your image and TutZone to name of the Avatar which will be shown in your Options Panel and Save file.

04. Now go to Settings => Discussion and change your default Gravatar to a custom one:

That concludes this simple and useful tutorial. Hope you like it.
