How to get Gravatars back

Thanks to Elliott Back for this temporary solution while the Gravatar site has domain problems (it expired).

In NP_Gravatar.php, find

$this->createOption(‘gravatarURL’,’Gravatar server’,’select’,’wide.gravatar.com’,’Default|wide.gravatar.com|Alternative
|www.gravatar.com’);

and change to

$this->createOption(‘gravatarURL’,’Gravatar server’,’select’,’wide.gravatar.com’,’Default|wide.gravatar.com|Alternative
|www.gravatar.com|DNS|64.124.231.223′);

then reinstall the plugin and select ‘DNS’ as your option.

    LOL, it’s nice to see your mind moving through all the stages – Confusion, Inspiration, Despair, Celebration!

    I wasn’t gonna give up. You’d said how to do it clearly so there was no reason why I couldn’t! Thanks again

  8. Red Dalek says:

    Right, they’re back at the normal address now anyway But I’m keeping DNS as an option just in case it happens again!

  9. El Barto says:
