WordPress is not only about blogs, markets, forums, news and other serious activities. It can also be used for fun activities or implement those fun activities, while users check your website out.

Plugins are not only to show catch a visitor’s eye and get him to subscribe for your newsletter or make a donation. It can be also for leisure, as plugin creators are now creating fun plugins for WordPress.

Simply does plugins do not make your website load faster, create better SEO for you, capture mails or sell your products.

Fun plugins just stand there to grab the eye and release some stress.

If you are a blogger, have you ever seen how much do people intend to stay and read your posts?

I am not talking about more articles, products or changing the niche.

This could totally hurt the website.

What I am saying is to add some fun plugins for WordPress.

We all use fun plugins and stay longer on a certain website, just to understand the full potential of the certain fun plugin and never stop, until we succeed.

For going more deep and creating your own custom avatars that will be displayed, once user comments you will have to add this code into your functions.php file:

 function custom_avatar_defaults ( $avatar_defaults ) {
     $avatar_url = get_bloginfo( 'template_directory' ) . '/images/avatar-default.png';
     $avatar_defaults[$avatar_url] = __( 'Custom Default Avatar', 'mytextdomain' );
     return $avatar_defaults;
