    Derrick,

    Does the Gravatar work with Blogspot?

    Sorry – lame video. Basically how to install a plugin…

    And there is a Gravatar settings in that big button right below where you were looking. It’s even visible on the video. Maybe a little prep time was in order?

      teamtarmac – are you using WordPress.com or a self-hosted WordPress blog? WordPress.com blogs don’t support plugins, so that could be why you don’t see it

    So what’s the difference between this plug-in and the gravatar option built-in to WordPress? Or am I getting confused into thinking WordPress has gravatar-support built-in because it shows a blue gravatar icon for ‘unknown’ users?

    With regards

      Geoff, it sounds like you might be looking to add a blavatar – the little version of your gravatar that appears in the corner of your browser’s address bar? I’m afraid those are on WordPress.com only at the moment. However, there are lots of plugins to help you achieve the same effect on a self-hosted blog. This is discussed a lot in the WordPress.org forums – one example here. If you run a search for “Favicon” from the plugin browser, (Plugins > Add New) that should come up with a plugin that does the job. If you have any other problems on the self hosted side, the WordPress.org forums are lively and there’s usually someone at hand to lend a hand.

    I can’t figure out why only my gravatar (the author) only shows up, I tried this plugin but it didn’t change anything.
