so ...


Apparently the Gravatar Signup plu­gin for WordPress got bro­ken a while back, and I had no idea it didn’t work since I signed up for mine before installing it. (I think WP has since taken it off their plu­gin browser but I may be mis­taken. How did I find this thing, any­way? I don’t remember.)

BUT HEY GUESS WHAT. I grabbed the fixes from the com­ments and updated the script myself, like a big girl! One line was appar­ently jacked up and Chris fig­ured out the prob­lem in like two sec­onds and now it works!!! I feel so accom­plished! Go team me!!!

So try it and let me know if it fails you some­how. And if you use WP and want the plu­gin for your­self, e-​mail me and I will send it to you! Sharing is caring.

    If you never get a con­fir­ma­tion email from Gravatar, sign up for a gmail account and give it THAT address. I guess.
