    I would like to know why in theme you do not recognize as a profile picture the gravatar that you have associated with your email, as it happens in this forum and in many other topics. Thank you!

    Hi @wpnovatos,

    Most of our theme users don’t want to use gravatars. Very few understand how it works and depending on the image ratios, it can give very bad image quality. Moreover, the Gwangi theme require a portrait ratio for avatars while most of the images uploaded to the gravatar service are square cropped.

    So for all these reasons, we have removed Gravatars display using the “bp_core_fetch_avatar_no_grav()” BuddyPress core function.

    Here is a post about this feature:

    Hope this help.
