Add your picture to WordPress blog comments

Jan17

It’s been a learning curve since I switched my blog to the new site, and one of the things I miss the most is that I can’t see your cute face in the comments. You know how when you comment on a Blogger blog your cute little photo pops up next to it, but when you leave a comment here, this shadowy fellow appears?

I am going to tell you how to change that so that you can have this instead.

I associate so many of you with your picture and now I feel like I don’t “know” you any more. So take a second and fix that.

You can have your own gravatar (globally recognized avatar) whether you have a blog or not. Just go to gravatar.com to get your free personalized picture. It will then show up on all gravatar enabled sites, WordPress included. So go upload your picture, come back here, and test it out in the comments. I want to see your face, and so many others do as well! This works for me.

  1. Here’s my gravatar. It is nice to associate a face with a name!
    Blessings to you! Love your blog!

  2. I’m thinking I already have one of these. Do I need to do anything special to make it work, or does it just know it’s me because of my email address? I guess we’ll see if I show up. lol

  7. So.. I double-checked my avatar and it said to wait about ten minutes or so for the change to take effect… let’s try this time.

  8. Ok, I went to the site and surprisingly (to me) it already had a picture of me! But I added another email address so I hope the picture shows up on more sites than it used to! I, too, love seeing all the smiling faces!

  13. This is the 3rd blog post I’ve read encouraging me to add a gravatar and I finally did it:) Now I’m hoping I did it correctly. Looking forward to hearing you speak and Blissdom!

  14. Love seeing people’s faces! Make sure you put any email adddress you use to comment with in your Gravatar account – it pulls your photo based on email address and if you use multiple addresses to comment you need to have them all listed in your account so it can show your pretty face! πŸ™‚

  23. Very impressive on the Shepherd’s Pie. You’ve motivated me to see how cheaply we can eat this week. I do have a $5 off $25 or more coupon that I’m going to use today. Thanks for getting the wheels turning on saving money in the cooking department.
