Author Not Showing in Gravatar Widget

  1. I am the administrator for my blog I run called My Scene. I just added a friend of mine as an author to my blog. The Gravatar widget doesn't seem to show their name, just mine. He has information set up and a picture (a temp. one for now) in the Gravatar account. I can't show his picture because of this. What is wrong here? My friend does not have his own WordPress blog, only an account which they will be using as an author for my blog.

    The blog I need help with is thekillerfrom1979.wordpress.com.

  2. You would have to add a second gravatar widget for the additional author. The gravatar widget only show one each.

    You can also use the author's widget, which will show all authors on the blog.

  3. I could use the author's widget but I want to add info on the author cleanly and the Gravatar widget does that. However I tried a second Gravatar widget still my name is the only one that shows.

  4. I have the widget set to costume with the author's email address hopping that would fix the problem and it did. Still, why is their name not show? Oh, this problem just fixed itself over the last 20 minutes.

  5. Sidebars are cached and can take up to 20 minutes or so to refresh sometimes depending on server loads and such. Typically it is less though.
