gravatar dissappeared, can't crop new image

  1. I just realized my old gravatar dissappared and I now get one of the generic flower like images. Not sure when this happened because I just noticed it. Since I had the image still saved, I tried to add it again as my gravatar but I am not able to crop it. It shows the cropping lines but I can't move them.

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

  2. Are these the instructions you followed? Visit your public profile http://dashboard.wordpress.com/wp-admin/profile.php and click on the link to Change your Gravatar.

    Which browser and version of it are you using?

    As you can't use the cropper you could have a browser issue so try changing your browser settings, refreshing the page, or clearing the browser cache and cookies - instructions for specific browsers.

  3. I'm using the latest version of Explorer. I did what you said and still couldn't crop the image. But I did end up finding a copy of my old, already cropped image that Gravatar (or WordPress?) still had so just I re-added it.

  4. Good to hear you resolved this. IE9 has some funky behavior so that's probably what caused your problem. Happy blogging. :)

  5. The other thing you can try is to go directly to http://gravatar.com while logged into wordpress.COM. Then go to the "my account" pulldown at the top, select "add an image" and go from there. Sometimes bypassing wordpress.COM will work.
