How to insert a gravatar picture?

  1. The link at gravatar.com doesn't give me the option to choose a photograph. It has inserted a blue/black pix that I don't recognize. I uploaded the picture I want to use under the photos section but don't know how to get it up into the gravatar box. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is monascott2819.wordpress.com.

  2. Go to > Dashboard > Users >My Profile to upload your gravatar.

  3. Hey TimeThief,
    When I follow the link and do Dashboard>Users>My Profile and then Change Gravatar it links to gravatar.com but it is just a blank page. There is nothing I can do on that page. I got it changed on Etsy and I think it comes up correctly on my blog (Sew Far, Sew Good) but I will have to check it out. Not sure how I made the other one work, just kept pushing buttons until I was able to upload my photo. It's frustrating to say the least. I feel like I know just enough to be dangerous.... Thanks, Mona

  4. Does this help?

    Gravatar and WordPress.com are together forever http://blog.gravatar.com/2013/04/03/gravatar-and-wordpress-com-together-forever/ They are both owned by Automattic.

    Gravatars/blavatars do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. Do not keep uploading!

    See: http://en.support.wordpress.com/avatars/blavatars/

    For best practices for uploading gravatars, avatars and blavatars scroll down to below the video here: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2010/01/24/gravatar-avatar-blavatar/

    To enable Gravatar display and hovercard display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars".
