Gravatar profile picture display

  1. Recently my gravatar no longer displays like it used to in a centered and square format it's now smaller and circular instead. I prefer the old look so how can I fix this? This is a link to my profile if you need to visualize it.

  3. Ummm ok? I was told to make a thread here but whatever.

    I'm surprised nobody has an answer here or anywhere else.

  4. I began having this problem when wordpress changed it's image format. I'm not sure if the two are related but I was redirected here but it appears I'm just gonna keep getting the bureaucratic run around.

  7. Hi there,

    We recently made some changes to the Gravatar profile layout, including the circular Gravatar image on your profile page. You can see another example of the new look on the Gravatar blog here:

  8. Thx for the help ya'll I assume there is no way to get the old look back?

    I still see people occasionally with the old image displays why is that?

    I gotta say changing Gravatar was a solution in search of a problem...

  9. There isn't a way to switch back to the old look, but we will take your feedback into account as we continue to work on the Gravatar profile pages. Thanks! :)

    I still see people occasionally with the old image displays why is that?

    Some users with a photo gallery on their Gravatar page will still see a square image on their profile for now, instead of the circular image. Our team is working now to make sure that the new design is consistent for everyone.
