Thank you for your answers, but still I diden't understand what I have to do. So if I well understand the "Gravatar" plugin must be disabled? Because I allready tried to do that, but if I disable the Gravatar plugin, I have an error when I do access to the main page of the Kunena forum.

Thanks for your answers and help

Can you give us some more information about this "error", please?

... so if you activate integration all users must have Gravatar account or no avatar.

... as opposed to what? If you turn on the Gravatar integration, people either will have a Gravatar account - and, possibly they will have a Gravatar avatar image - or they will have the "no avatar" avatar image. It's obbvious that people will have one or the other, isn't it? Did I misunderstand something otherwise intended? :unsure:

Hi giorgio!!

I had exactly the same problem, which is now cured, I achieved it the following way....

1. Go to "Plug-in Manager" and ensure that the "Gravatar" plug-in is disabled.
2. Go to the Kunena control panel, and click on "Forum Configuration".
3. Click on the "Avatars" box.
4. Ensure that the "Use Avatars Gallery" box is set to "NO".

Now go to your "User Profile", click on "Edit" and you will discover an additional "Avatar Image" box. Click on this and you are able to "BROWSE" and "SAVE" your chosen Avatar.

Simples!!!!

Hope this helps!! ;)

These steps should be unnecessary, in my opinion, but in these rare cases maybe this is something the development team should investigate further. Our difficulty is creating an environment that mimics the cases reported in this topic.

We appreciate your help, Walander, and I wasn't saying otherwise. I was merely stating my surprise that you would need to perform steps 2-4 of your procedure, that's all. :)

Gravatar is an external application, not installed on joomla site and should be only option for single user to use it. It is not the same as Community Builder and Jomsocial already installed on joomla site. How is designed now, Gravatar integration 'feature' is not usable for most of users.

@Tktemp I understand where the concern is coming from. I will forward this to the rest of our development team, however I cannot guarantee if and when this will be updated to work with this functionality. Thank you for detailing to us what you think the behavior of the software should be.
