could you please make an option in order to totally disable the service.

My website is loading forever because of slow connection of

Even when trying to disable completely from my website, there is currently still some code in BP which prevents to remove completely (I guess it is checking whether there is an avatar saved for a specific user).

I understand that WordPress wants to utilize their Gravatar-service, but sitting at the other end of the world makes gravatar quite annoying.

We can server a static file uri instead of and that's all.

  • Milestone changed from 1.2.4 to Future Release

There's zero chance that something like this would get into 1.2.4. Putting it to future release until an updated roadmap is produced, then we can update the ticket.

I'm pretty sure there are filters in the bp_core_fetch_avatar() function in bp-core-avatars.php, and the bp_get_signup_avatar() function in bp-core-templatetags.php that allow you to do this. I haven't taken the time to figure out the exact steps to take, but then again, I don't have the problem. The filters of interest are 'bp_core_fetch_avatar' and 'bp_get_signup_avatar', respectively. Also, is this really major?

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

You can actually set 'nograv' to true when using bp_core_fetch_avatar() and BuddyPress will skip over gravatar completely.

That doesn't stop WordPress and get_avatar from doing it though.
