Now I’m an intermediate php/html/css programmer, but a wordpress noob. How do the avatars work?! I know that they are supposed to automatically link to the person’s gravatar profile by email, but this isnt working for me. This is also happening with the author information, where it justs gives a blank picture, although my email address is entered. I haven’t aletered with the code at all, and I see other users don’t have the same problem. Why? 1) How can I fix this? 2) Is there a better solution than gravatar? Alternative? 3) Any plugins you would recommend that work well with them theme. Thank you so much for your help. -Nick August 15, 2010 at 1:09 pm #32661 DudeModerator If you want to use your personal avatar try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-local-avatar/ For further informations about gravatars and wordpress you can use google.
