Each of the Pretty Darn Cute Design themes uses the Genesis User Profile in one of the widget areas (either the sidebar, or one of the footers).
To add the Genesis User Profile to a widget area, go to Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets > select your desired widget area > drag the Genesis User Profile widget into the widget area.
Once it’s been added to your widget area:
- Select which user from the drop-down
- Select the image size
- Select the image alignment
- Check the box to either user the author profile, or custom text. Add custom text as desired.
- Choose which page to link to.
The Genesis User Profile will automatically display the Gravatar image associated with the email address of the user selected in the drop-down. If you don’t already have a Gravatar account, you can create one for free at gravatar.com
Once you have created the gravatar account, you will upload an image there; wait 10 minutes, and the Genesis User Profile will automatically update on your site.
If you are not seeing an update: to troubleshoot:
Make sure that the email address on the Gravatar is the same as the email associated with your user name (go to Dashboard > Users > All Users > select your profile > check the email address there.
Make sure that you have “enabled” avatars in your settings (Dashboard > Settings > Discussion > Avatar Display > Check the “Show Avatars” box > Save Settings):
