    How do I set myself a custom avatar? If this isn't in the core, then is there a plugin?

    Regards,
    Jason

    Avatar where? Here? In your blog? Both?

    The latest versions have support for gravatar.

    My blog. I want an avatar of my choice to appear when I make a post.

    Is this the one for the latest version? http://en.gravatar.com/site/implement/wordpress

    See how it is done in the default theme.

    Sorry, but where am I looking once I've set the default style as the theme?

    Unless you have registered at the gravatar site you will see nothing. The code is in the comments.php file.

    OK -- I signed up and added a gravatar. Now how to make it show?

    Quote from the site you visited:

    when used inside the Comment Loop, outputs the correct gravatar URL based on the commenters email address.

    So, it is for comments.

    If you want it in posts, see this topic:

    Yes, I'm looking at adding it for comments, but it isn't showing. Not sure where I'm going wrong.

    Thanks for the link, too.

    It will only show up if the email used during the sign up is the same as the email you are using as commenter/admin/whatever.
