What is “”?

  • I saw that the other day. I though it was a local development environment problem I had, but I believe it’s to do with the Gravatar service; I’ll raise it with Automattic.

    Thank you for your quick reply. This is strange because my page never had anything to do with I also deactivated the plugin “Jetpack for WordPress” which seemd to be a possible trigger for this, but nothing changed.

    What do you mean with “I’ll raise it with Automat(t)ic”? I’m not a native English speaker. ;)


    Sorry. Gravatar is a service that lets you upload a picture, and it’s used as your avatar across many websites. BuddyPress lets users upload their own picture, of course, but we use Gravatar as a fallback (if you don’t have a gravatar, then we use the uploaded picture).

    Automattic ( is the company who owns and runs Gravatar.

    This problem was caused by a change made by Gravatar. We have a bug ticket tracking the issue at

    Thanks again for your explanation. I hope the next version will fix this problem.

    Thanks for the heads up. I also thought I had a config issue in my local Dev.

    @hnla – the problem we looked at yesterday – I noticed the domain name. If you check the trac ticket it’s because the image isn’t publicy accessible (as we’d suspected).

    thngs are set that unless you upload your own pic/avatar the gravatar service is brought into the equation whether you like it or not, it’s a behaviour I’m looking into.

    No need to bump this topic when you’ve just started your own about a similar thing. There’s been no change.
