    Hi all, quick question..

    I have 2 default avatars not showing in the Settings : (nor on the website)
    – the Blank avatar
    – one custom default avatar I added (using a code in functions.php)

    --> all I get is a "question mark in small blue square" instead.

    What happened ?
    What can I do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance,
    PS: my site is saved locally at the time, can't share the link.

    Hi again..
    I thought about something.. and it might help someone for an answer.

    I still have no clue why I can't see the images for those 2 avatars. So I've copied the "image addresses".. so here it is :

    My site is in local at the moment.. and this might be part of the problem.
    (even if it should work anyway)

    Address for the BLANK AVATAR (not showing) :

    Address for the Customized AVATAR (which I added / not showing) :

    If I compare this to another image in the site, for ex. the logo in the header, I have this :

    ----> it's not the same route. Probably not using the same "code" to get to the images". And I'm sure that's why I get a "question mark" instead of an image.

    Can someone help me out?
    I'd highly appreciate it.

    Thank you,

    Gravatar needs to be able to see that file actually exists.

    I had a problem with testing on a local site and then uploading and changing my hosts file. I could see the image there but Gravatar.com could not. Make sure you upload your default gravatar to somewhere its API can see.
