Gravatar doesn't work outside of WordPress

  1. I set up my gravatar account a few weeks ago and everything is great when I'm commenting on WordPress blogs.

    The problem is when I try to comment on a blog outside (i.e blogger) - I choose to publish my comment with WordPress, but then it just shows the default image (an orange stripe with a gray arrow).

    Any thoughts?

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

  2. Howdy,

    Apologies for the delay; we're going back and sweeping through forums posts that didn't get an answer by the volunteers.

    Your Gravatar profile appears correct, so a couple of possibilities. Your gravatar is tied to your e-mail address, so if you're posting a comment and use a different e-mail address than the one on your Gravatar account, it won't work. It may be helpful to add the e-mail account associated with your Blogger/Google account (if you have a different one) to your Gravatar account.

    Also, the images may be cached, meaning they'll return a saved version (the default image in this case) until the service checks again for a new copy.

    Please let me know if you're still having the problem! Thanks for using WordPress.com.
