Re: Avatar Upload Issue
I’ve actually used this to my advantage on mine, because if it doesn’t work, and it often doesn’t, the alternative – which is always an option anyways is having members set up accounts at gravatar in order to display avatars correctly. You can disable the gravatar upload on your site on the general components set up. Just click yes to the disable gravatar uploads.
The benefit is, that is an additional verification step to your website users to prevent against spammers. Then set your default to the ones provided in your dashboard. They don’t like that their avatar displays like that. so they go get a gravatar account so that their custom avatar displays. On some of my sites, I actually have added the option to add members gravatar accounts to their profile for cross promotional purposes. I do have a member that has gotten a gravatar and has her gravatar link listed.
