  • Resolved Tanganjika


    Hi, I just decided to use WordPress, tinker and tamper to make it do what I want, therefore seeking the help of this forum.

    While I just wonder but never mind to find a decent link “Matt” in the footer, I consider it a nuisance to be forced to subscribe to his Gravatar website just to change that ugly default avatar. I can’t even just remove it.

    African rulers here were I live are criticised for cronyism — but what might we call this merger of issues?

    IMHO Open Source movement depends on the collaboration of commoners without centering on a guru.

    The default avatar settings are built into WordPress, on the Settings->Discussion page.

    And the Gravatar service is provided by Automattic, and it’s used for a lot more than just WordPress. It’s a Global Avatar system, used for avatars everywhere.

    I understand the idea behind Gravatar as Global Avatar system. Only were is my freedom of choice not to use it? May I at least be able to abstain from having one at all?

    I don’t understand your concerns here. If you don’t want to enable avatars or use them, then just don’t enable or use them. Easy enough.

    As I said, the settings for them are on the Settings->Discussion in WordPress.
