Gravatar?

Post by bucks » 23 Jan 2010, 14:27

Hi,

When my blog was on wordpress.com, under Appearance>Users>YourProfile, there's a box on the right side of the page where I was able to add an image - a Gravatar. It was just there and I uploaded an image - I didn't do any setting up or adding of anything.

Now that I have wordpress and suffusion on my own domain, when I go to my profile page, that box isn't there and there doesn't seem to be any place to upload an image to use as an avatar.

Searching the forum for help, I only found this post
http://www.aquoid.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... vatar#p949 which didn't help - it says that Suffusion uses gravatars but needs a plugin??? That didn't make sense to me and I wasn't sure about adding plugins I know nothing about. If I need to add something to my WP in order to have a gravatar show up when my posts show up on Facebook*, could someone suggest a specific thing to use or do?

*that's the reason for this question. I made my first post in the new blog and when I shared it to Facebook, the only thing that showed up was the post title. In the past, when I shared posts from my old blog on Wordpress.com, my gravatar image would show up next to the post in Facebook.

Thanks

You might want to go through the linked post again. That user needed a plugin because he didn't want to use Gravatars. Your Gravatar showing up on FaceBook is a different proposition from it showing up on your blog. I don't know how FaceBook operates with Gravatars, so you might want to contact developers there, but to get one in WP you have to go to http://en.gravatar.com. When you create your user in WP you have to assign an email address. The Gravatar is automatically picked up from the Gravatar site based on the email address in your profile.

That's exactly what i was looking for thanks very much. All I need to do is add an image to correspond with the email address I'm using to log into my new blog and/or create a new user who's email address is already associated with a gravatar image. I just needed to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks again.
