1. Thank you so much! I spent 2 hours this morning trying to figure this out. WIth your instructions I did it in 10 minutes.

  2. Hi there- thanks for the easy tutorial. One follow up question…the genesis user profile widget allows photo size small to XL 125 pixels. I have mine set to XL but my photo is still only about 1/4 the size of the example shown on this page entry of Lauren. How can I get a larger pic? Or is that not possible with the (sprinkle) theme that I have?

      The typical size of the gravatar in the comments section on sites is 48×48 unless it’s purposely increased on the design of the site. Gravatar will have you upload it larger so it will appear larger in the places it called for it larger. For instance, if you go here you can see all the images there are pulled from gravatar but are set to show larger.

  3. Is there a way to change the font size of the bio in this widget? I can’t seem to find it in the css and it doesn’t let you change straight from the widget either. Thank you.

      Hey Anna!

      You can change it via the CSS, but you’ll have to target it specifically. You’ll want to target .user-profile below the body section of your site (at the top where you designate your default font style). So it would look something like this:

      .user-profile {
      font-family: YOUR CHOSEN FONT FAMILY;
      font-size: CHOSEN FONT SIZE;

      You can obviously add any other styling there as wel; (font weight and transformation, etc.) 🙂 Hope that helps!

    I am enjoying all the tutorials, Thank you!

    My image is still not showing up even after using your helpful tutorial. I have two emails registered and both have been confirmed on the Gravator site and show the images, but the image is still not showing up on my site. Any suggestions? I have the Tasteful theme.
    Thanks you!

      Hi there! I’m so happy you’ve been enjoying the tutorials lately!

      If your image isn’t appearing at all, then you’ll want to see this post that will walk you through that.

  5. Ok, I’m aware of how to create the standard Genesis user image with the widget. But I like the look and display of the one on this page at top right. How do you create a user profile that displays like that?

    Second question so not have to ask it again in another tutorial but related to this one also is, how do I configure it so that I can place a user profile that appear at the end of a blog post before the comment section? For example, similar to the user profile on this page before the blue newsletter signup box. If there is a tutorial on it, can you please point me to the correct one.

    All things otherwise, these Tutorials are extremely helpful!
