Change Avatar Size

The wp_list_comments function has a parameter to change the default (48px) size to anywhere between 0 and 80px.

    Though you may use css for that.

    CSS is going to scale the img, which will pixelate it. This technique fetches an img sized the way you want it, which is the better way to go.

    Where does this go? In CSS? In comments.php? Somewhere else?

      You would place this in the function that is displaying your comments. (In comments.php)

      		<ol class="commentlist">
      			<?php wp_list_comments('avatar_size=70&type=comment'); ?>

      Good luck!

      No. You’d place this code in a custom function in your child theme otherwise you’ll lose it when you update WordPress.
