Enabling gravatars

An administrator can enable the use of gravatars in Settings > Site administration > Users > Permissions > User policies. If a user has not uploaded a user picture, Moodle will check whether the user's email address has an associated gravatar and if so, will use the gravatar as the user's picture.

Gravatar default image URL

In Moodle 2.2.6 onwards, if gravatars are enabled, an alternative default user picture may be specified. The options are:

If the field is left empty then the theme's default user picture is used.

Note: Prior to Moodle 2.2.6, gravatar integration stopped working. See MDL-35669 for details.
