  • I’m using the Gravatar2 plugin. I have a gravatar registered at Other gravatars are displaying properly at my blog. But mine won’t display. Here’s an example of what I see. Would anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

    Similar problem here:

    When I look at my WP2.2.2 blog with Firefox, I can see my gravatar and those of all other commenters who have one. No problems there.

    When I look via IE, I can see the gravatars of other commenters, but mine behaves oddly: if I submit a comment while logged out, my gravatar is recorded against that comment just as it should. If I submit a comment while logged in, no gravatar is recorded against that comment.

    Weird, eh?

    This happens whichever Gravatar-enabling plugin I use, so I reckon the problem is login-related, not plugin-related.

    For an example, see, be warned that the “F”-word has been used in some of the comments there.

    All suggestions as to how to fix this would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.




    I’ve upgraded WP from 2.2.2 to 2.3.1 and also upgraded from IE6 to IE7, and all gravatars are now visible. They still display different to how they do in Firefox, but I can live with it. Cheers for looking.



    there’s no need to install a plugin to do this … instead – follow Matt’s advice, and hardcode it to the theme.

    insert the following code:

    “Just put it in your comments loop, I put it right before the comment_text() call.”

    if ( !empty( $comment->comment_author_email ) ) {
    	$md5 = md5( $comment->comment_author_email );
    	$default = urlencode( '' );
    	echo "<img style='float: right; margin-left: 10px;' src='$md5&amp;size=60&amp;default=$default' alt='' />";
