New avi not working

  1. Hi,
    I'm trying to change my blavatar. I did all the right things, uploading it, cropping it, saving it, but it hasn't changed from the old avi.
    I changed my gravatar as well, hoping maybe that was the issue and still no-go. When I check my dashboard the new image appears, but it's not on my published blog.
    Help? Please? Thank you.

  2. Sometimes it take awhile Sue. How long ago did you change everything?

  3. I changed the blavi two days ago! :D I re-did it today just to make sure I wasn't crazy (I am, but not about this).

  4. These are the best practices for uploading your gravatar:

    (1) Prepare the image prior to uploading it and make sure it’s no larger than 128 pixels X 128 pixels square.

    (2) The image filetype has to be either PNG, GIF or JPG. Make sure the file name contains only letters and numbers – no special characters – and make sure all letters are in lowercase.

    (3) Also make sure the image file name has an extension (Example – image.jpg)

    (4) Note that there is a time delay while your gravatar image propagates. If you are experiencing problems then go to the gravatar site http://en.gravatar.com/ and read the FAQs as it contains common questions and answers to them http://en.gravatar.com/site/faq/

    I hope this helps. Best wishes. :)

  6. Thank you, timethief. I'd done all that.
    I'm giving it a day.
    If nothing changes I'm moving this blog to blogger.
    (No I'm not - I'll just cry or something)

  7. I can't imagine why the lack of a a little symbol immediately displaying would be a "deal breaker" for you but then I'm not you and we all have different priorities.

  8. Um - I was joking. (read the part in the parenthesis).

  9. I'm glad to hear you were joking. :)

  10. Hi, suelagoo2; I just took a glance at this and everything appears to be OK; the only thing I noticed is that your gravatar and your blavatar are different images. I'm not sure if that's what you were going for or not.

  11. Hi, Markel.

    I initially tried to have them both the same, but then, after re-doing it, I think I cropped differently. It's possible I used a different, but similar, pic - at this point, I've done it some many times to make it stick I don't even remember ;)

    So, it's just a matter of time, then?

    Thank you.

  12. Ok - everything seems to up now.
    Thank you!

  13. Yay! for Markel. :)
