Hi timethief, how this is related to my question? I am not able to upload avatar, I am not able to use gravatar as I didn't confirm the activation email on gravatar. I didn't get this email (not in spambox, etc., I can get emails from wordpress) so I cannot confirm it and everytime I want to upload gravatar, I get an error message that my account is not activated.
"Gravatar and WordPress is the same ..." I understand
"Gravatars do not show instantly after uploading them ..." I understand but I am not able to go to place where I can upload it - so this next step is wating until I activate gravatar account.
"For best practices for uploading ..." - the same like above - I cannot access the upload area, even I have wordpress account - my gravatar account (event it is the same like wordpress account) is not activated and gravatar site does not allow me access to upload gravatar.
I just cannot find the place where I can resend the confirmation email.
"To enable Gravatar display on your blog go to > Settings > Discussion and scroll way done the page to "Avatars"."
I don't have any blog, for now I don't need it, I just want to use the gravatar.
For now I can do this:
My Account - Settings - Gravatar profile - after clicking on this the sit will be redirected to gravatar.com where I just get informed that my account is not active.
The same in My Account - Settings - Public Profile - Current Gravatar.
In fact this means, if you get no confirmation email:
- your account is blocked
- you cannot resend the confirmation again
I normally get the emails from wordpress.com so I think, there is no protection, no spam folders for the email :-(
Please make sure you activate your account and grant Gravatar access. Click the button above to try again.
