The Unicorn Avatar and Mystique Theme's April Fools Joke That Is Simply NOT Funny!
I just wasted hours of my time trying to figure this out.
This is not good business practice. An April fools joke that can ruin customer service for your business, wow. Theme coded by http://digitalnature.eu/
How to remove the Unicorn avatar from WordPress’ Mystique theme (Taken from: http://www.cravingtech.com/how-to-remove-the-unicorn-avatar-in-mystique-wordpress-theme.html)
Go to Appearance-Editor
On the right (where you can see the list of all the Mystique template files), click on the core.php
Do a search on “unicorn” to find the culprit
It should get you to the line where a function called “mystique_get_avatar” is (function mystique_get_avatar)
If you understand programming, notice where the line says if (date(‘m-d’) == ’04-01?)? It means every first of April, the code will use a service called Unicornify on the net to transform your handsome/pretty face to a Unicorn!
To remove this silly WordPress April Fool’s joke, delete the lines from “if(date……” until the “else”. The function should only have “return get_avatar($email, $size); inside it.
Don’t forget to save
