    You’ll need a Gravatar account for yourself.

    Once you have that setup, any blog, including your own, will use that graphic as your avatar.

    Thanks Chris,
    I’ve opened an account with and uploaded an image to attach to my eMails, so that’s sorted.
    I’ve downloaded the gravatar.php WP Plug-in and installed that to my WP site but dont know how to configure my comments-template to display the avatar(s) ?
    The WP Gravatar plug-in help page on the Gravatar site says:
    Remember that this only generates the URL, so you have to place the gravatar tag inside the src attribute of an img tag like so:
    ……..then there is nothing else ?
    Anyone help ?

    That is how you can place your gravatar images within your comment loop:

    <img src="” alt=”Gravatar” />
