Strange icon below header
I’m beginning configuring my blog appearance and a strange blue icon is showing below the site title.
Anyone knows what it is and how to change it?
The blog I need help with is jogosdomariobrosblog.wordpress.com.
That’s for a gravatar. See here https://wordpress.com/theme/independent-publisher-2
Independent Publisher 2 was built with the personal blogger in mind, so a Gravatar image can be used in the header. By default, the site owner’s Gravatar is displayed.
If you want to display a different Gravatar, go to Customize → Theme Options and change the Gravatar email address.
If you don’t want to display a Gravatar at all, remove the email address from the field completely.
I note that you have not uploaded a gravatar image yet.
A gravatar account and a wordpress.com account are one in the same thing as Automattic Inc. owns both. Please see: http://en.gravatar.com/support/
Why Does Gravatar Say I Already Have an Account?
See Upload an Avatar https://en.support.wordpress.com/gravatars/#upload-an-avatar
You can change your gravatar at any time by clicking on the existing one on this page https://wordpress.com/me
You can use one gravatar image for each username account. It will apply to all sites referred under the same username account. And, the Gravatar help link is http://en.gravatar.com/support/
Gravatar/blavatar (favicon) images do not show up instantly after uploading them. Gravatar images are cached and frequently take several days to display after a change. The accepted file types are:
Do not forget to select an image rating.
Know that other bloggers can choose not to display any “erotic” gravatar’s on their site.
To enable Gravatar display and hovercard display on your blog go to Dashboard > Settings > Discussion
*Replace NAME_OF_BLOG with the actual name of your site in that URL and click.
Scroll way down the page to “Avatars”.
