I’ve used Gravatar for a while, with the same email address attached to my Patreon. When I connected my Patreon to https://leifandthorn.com/ using this plugin, the account it made uses the same icon I have on Patreon, the red fox-thing with a blue background. There’s what looks like an option to link my Gravatar to the account in the profile editing page, a link under the icon that says “You can change your profile picture on Gravatar.”, but that just takes me to https://en.gravatar.com/ where I’m logged in as my Gravatar email address. On that website I can’t find anything about this plugin or how to make my L&T comments icon be my Gravatar when I’m logged in, so I’m rather at a loss.
Yes, the login procedure currently overrides your current avatar if you didnt already have one. You can install a WP avatar plugin to allow you upload an avatar to override everything.
I’m not the site owner, just a patron and reader, so I don’t see how that helps me.
Ah i see. Then at this moment there isnt much that you can do yourself. Notifying the site owner about this situation may be fruitful.
In near future a way to prevent overriding of avatar may be added - but this may be left to site owners’ decision as well.
