Weird avatar icons next to Comments
I am seeing these strange avatar icons next to comments by people who do not have a defined avatar. They are strange geometric designs and bright colors. Frankly, it looks terrible on my blog and I would like to know if there’s a way to not have it happen.
Here’s a screenshot of what’s happening:
Or you could just see it for yourself on my blog (look over in the right column at the “recent comments” section):
Those are identicons http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2008/05/04/default-avatars/
On the dashboard, go to Settings > Discussion, scroll down, and change the default avatar options. That’ll take care of it.
I have gone to the settings as you said, but it already had “Mystery Man” checked. So I checked it again and hit save, now NOTHING is showing up for avatars, not even for people who have them.
OK, I figured that out, but now in my “Authors” section, it isn’t displaying avatars.
I have these settings checked:
Avatar Display — Show Avatars [x]
Maximum Rating — X Even more than above [x]
Default Avatar — Mystery Man
But it still isn’t displaying my authors’ avatars.
If someone has found the solution, I’d like to know it too!!!!!!!
I’ve chosen Mystery Man for unknowed/unblogged people, not for friends and myself!
But even my own avatar has disappeared, in my blog and others too :-(
Strange : my avatar is always showed in my “profile administration”.
And why does it appear here and never on blog????????????????????????????
Mine doesn’t even appear anywhere at all…
Somebody, please, save me…
I uploaded an image of my cute face for hundreds of time this afternoon. Uploading was successful but where’s my face?!
yellaojrak, I can see your avatar now. It just takes a while for it to propagate through the system.
Oh, really? How do i look?
I still don’t see it…
Now I see me.
oh, no… I turn into a mystery woman again…
