Gravatar.com down?

  • I noticed the other day that gravatars were not showing up anywhere, my site or others. A quick ping of gravatar.com returned a “request timed out.” Anybody know what happened to them?

  • If you change the linee in the plugin from:

    $out = “http://www.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=”.md5($comment->comment_author_email);


    $out = “http://wide.gravatar.com/avatar.php?gravatar_id=”.md5($comment->comment_author_email);

    it then pulls the gravatar from a distributed cache proxy which should continue to work, even when gravatar.com goes down (so they say) plus as your using a cache of gravatars, it’s not putting as much a strain on the gravatar servers
