HOW TO SET UP GRAVATAR
To setup a gravatar, you need to provide an email that will be associated with it. So, go to Gravatar home page and enter your email in the box specified and click Get Your Gravatar.
Alternatively, you can go directly to the signup page and enter the required email and click Signup.
A confirmation email would be sent to the email entered previously. Open your mail and click on the confirmation link.
At this point, you’ll need to enter your username and password for the account created on gravatar. Choose the username people will easily identify you with because, once entered and checked to be available it can not be edited after signup. The username must be lowercase all through. Numbers are also allowed, but with no spaces or punctuation marks.
Put in your password and re-enter the password in the next box for confirmation. Check the terms of service and privacy box.
Now click on Signup.
To add your gravatar image, click on ‘Add one by clicking here’ below.
There are three different locations you can source for image to upload.
