I obediently updated to WordPress 2.5.1, and lost my Gravatars. I’ve checked the settings, and they’re still enabled. They’re definitely still in my templates, but nobody gets anything but the default “no gravatar” picture. Buh?
Since WordPress 2.5 has Gravatar support, I’m attempting to add Gravatars to my blog template. Unfortunately, I just keep getting errors, or a the default “no Gravatars” image (even for comment authors who I know have Gravatars, like me). I’m certain that the author of this template isn’t going to update it to include support, because her web site and business are up for sale. She hasn’t ever responded to questions in the past, either, so I figure it’s silly to look for help there.
I tried on another template, with the same errors. I really don’t want to switch themes again, because I couldn’t even start to remember everything I’ve customized in this one, and I’d rather not do it all over again. I’m annoyed, though. If anyone can help me, I’d appreciate it!
Update: Squee! They’re working now! The clue I needed was in a post at Weblog Tools Collection. Now I can try updating the other blogs!
Otherwise, Now Reading is working now, thanks to help from the author. I’m thrilled, as it’s one of my favorite plug-ins. When I get ReaderWare set up for us again, I’ll try to figure out a way to export data from it to NR.
Cystats is not working, though. I didn’t even realize that it was broken at first, because the error only shows up for users who aren’t logged in. Oddly enough, it works on some blogs that are running 2.5, but not this one. The author of that plug-in hasn’t responded to my questions, though. It might be due to a language barrier, as his blog is written in German. Now it’s working again, as randomly as it quit working. Why? Who knows? If you see an error on the site at any time, please comment and let me know!
I just realized that Livejournal Crosspost also died in the upgrade. Fortunately, there’s a fix described in the issues board at the development site that should make it work again.
Now I get to go back and see how many posts didn’t go to LJ, and try to fix that little omission.
