New avi not working
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.
The blog I need help with is lagunatic.wordpress.com.
Sometimes it take awhile Sue. How long ago did you change everything?
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).
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. :)

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)
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.
Um – I was joking. (read the part in the parenthesis).
I’m glad to hear you were joking. :)
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.
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?
Ok – everything seems to up now.
Yay! for Markel. :)
