Add Gravatar image to Accounts page in Opencart

  Recently I had an enquiry on how to add a customer’s Gravatar image to their Account page in Opencart.

What is VQMOD and how to install

Sometimes when talking about customising Opencart you might hear the word VQMOD dropped into the conversation here and there. So what is this VQMOD? Well quite simply it is an effective and clever way to modify your Opencart functionality without actually going in and hacking the core files. It stands for VirtualQMod and basically modifies the Opencart files on-the-fly with modification scripts. By not modifying the core files, you won’t have to worry about overwriting these changes when you do…
