What is a Gravatar?

Among the many new features of our recent blog and forums upgrade is the use of profile avatars, Gravatars and Wavatars … oh my!

Tripawd Forum members can upload their own profile avatar that can appear next to each post from that user. We were excited to hear that we could patch our theme to make those avatars appear next to blog comments posted here by known forum members. Alas, the code didn’t work with new WordPress comment system.

So you ask, what are these Wavatars, and how do I get one? Well, reply below and you’ll have one – the same one if you reply again. They are randomly generated. Unless, that is, you have a Gravatar.

Anyone can get a Globally Recognized Avatar at This unique profile avatar will be displayed next to posts and comments you make on any blog or social networking site that supports Gravatars. Otherwise you end up with the Mystery Man or some MonsterID.

So get your Gravatar, and keep leaving comments! And don’t forget to update your forum profile with an Avatar too because Gravatrs won’t work there.
