How to enable gravatars in WordPress?

Gravatar stands for Globally Recognized Avatar. Users can set their avatars at http://gravatar.com/ and they will be displayed alongside their comments in any website that supports them.

Starting from WordPress 2.5, Gravatars are built-in and don't require any additional plugins for basic usage and management. You can manage your Gravatar from the Settings > Discussion section of the WordPress admin panel.

    Sorry seems like Gravatar doesn’t connect my profile with my blog..i think it depends by an error between site ground and worpress (indeed i am not able to log-in on worpress, but only on site ground)..what can i do?

      Gravatar gives you the option to use the uploaded version for each website using gravatar.

      Roshni, if the general Gravatar method doesn't work for you, you can check out this plugin.
