    Hi Bill –

    Building another site! I’m using Photobug to start with. I’m trying to setup the About Me sidebar widget with information about the organization. Based on what I’ve read, I need to create a Gravatar account with the organization’s email address in order to use a custom image here. I don’t see a way to do it within WordPress itself. Is this correct? Is there a way to override this and allow me to upload an image for this that I can change later if I want?

    Thanks –
    Lara

    Excellent question Lara. There is a plugin called Simple Local Avatars (https://wordpress.org/plugins/simple-local-avatars/) that can let you upload an image (or choose one from the media library) inside your WordPress profile. That way you can skip the Gravatar if you’d like to.

    Let me know if you run into trouble there.

    Have a great day,
    Bill
