WordPress interface for OpenSimulator now allows avatar creation

Creating an avatar is now possible with the WordPress interface for OpenSimulator (w4os) A shortcode allows you to insert the registration form on a page of your choice. If the user already has an avatar, the code displays a minimal profile (avatar’s first name, last name and UUID). For sites using WooCommerce, an additional “Avatar” section appears on the “My Account” page (as in the illustration above).

It’s basic, but it’s a work in progress, and it’s an important step in the development of this plugin. There is still a long way to go for a complete web interface, but we’re moving forward!

The Access/Registration page of the Speculoos World website has been updated to take advantage of this feature.
