Only Show Gravatar If Commenter Has One--Otherwise Nothing? (2 posts)

    Is this possible:

    I'd like the comments area to show the commenter's gravatar if they have one. If they don't, I'd like nothing to show up (not even a blank).

    My problem:

    I have posts with hundreds of comments and the pages have to load hundreds of calls to gravatar.com for the default gravatar and it bogs down the page loading time. I'd rather nothing show up (not even a blank since that calls gravatar.com).

    Is it possible to do?

    Hey Terry,
    Gravatar from your commenters will only show up, if they have account in Gravatar.com, otherwise it will stay blank, or generated (depends on you- you can change it in admin < settings <discussion < avatar display, show or don't show then right almost in the bottom of the page, you can choose default gravatar or generated gravatar).
    I have a blog and i don't think my page calls gravatar.com for my commenters's gravatars.

    Here is a screencast how to set up your avatar in gravatar.com, and automatically will display whenever you put the same email address as you signed up in Gravatar.com
    Greetings.
