    Someone with an offensive gravatar picture has clicked 'like' on my blog, and their gravatar image pops up below the post. I don't know how to block/remove/report the image. Please help?

    Hey,

    If they use the email to be able to like the blog maybe this plugin will help you http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/disable-user-gravatar/

    Hi, how do I get this plug-in to run? I haven't used plug-ins before.
    Thank you :)

    Hey,

    In your WordPress dashboard. On the left side menu you will see a tab called Plugins click that then click add new. Search for Disable User Gravatar. Then install this plugin and activate.

    Um, I can't see a Plugins tab :(
    Does this have anything to do with not paying for my blog? I'm using the free version. I haven't upgraded.

    Thanks, but I still don't know how to get rid of the Gravatar. Is there anything else anyone knows of or do I just have to try and ignore it? And hope the guy changes his picture? :)

    Contact them and report the gravatar as offensive maybe they will block it

  9. You're in the wrong forums: there is nothing anyone here can advise you on that. ;)

    As mentioned above visit http://en.support.wordpress.com/ for support of your WordPress.COM blog.
