In preparation for the new MilesCity.com V4 site - for those of you who have not created a Gravatar (or don't know what one is) - could you please create one at the following link?

https://en.gravatar.com/c...ce=_signup

Wordpress, which bought Gravatar a while back, is currently the fallback for avatars on the new site. Uploading an avatar image there will help me with my development and testing ... and, it's also a useful (and free) web service.

Basically, you just create an account there and upload an image you want to use on other sites as your "avatar" (aka "Global Avatar" aka "Gravitar"). Nothing else much to do. It's basically just a profile image available for use on other sites - much like the one you may already have on Facebook.

It doesn't have to be of you. It could be of your dog, your cat, a tree, or whatever. Anything you want.

Thanks!

Regards, Larry

After the account is created and the avatar is uploaded, what else do you need done?

That's all. The new version of MilesCity.com automatically uses it if available.

Sounds good - I'm always happy when things require minimal effort on my part ; -)

You do have to setup an avatar for the email address you used for your milescity.com account or it won't work.
