Gravatar Support Ending

Recommended Posts


An upcoming software update will remove support for gravatars so I'm getting ready by disabling gravatar support now. If you don't know what a gravatar is you probably aren't using one and this will not have any impact on your forum experience :) 

If you are using a gravatar, your profile photo will simply revert to a letter image as the default. You can of course upload a custom profile image the same as always.

I'm a bit bummed because I *do* use gravatars; on the other hand, the change is to improve forum performance and page load speeds and I'm all for that. :thumbsup:


What Is Gravatar?

An "avatar" is an image that represents you online—a little picture that appears next to your name when you interact with websites.

A Gravatar is a Globally Recognized Avatar. You upload it and create your profile just once, and then when you participate in any Gravatar-enabled site, your Gravatar image will automatically follow you there.

Gravatar is a free service for site owners, developers, and users. It is automatically included in every WordPress.com account and is run and supported by Automattic.
