For the Record: How to register on FTR and how to add your own avatar
Hello everyone, since a bunch of folks wrote me yesterday about not knowing how to register or login to FTR to comment (strange, I thought it’s actually pretty simple), I’ll just post this here. If you are not log on, open the post you want to comment on and on the bottom, you will see this: Just pick your poison… or rather, the social service you want to use to log in. Statistically, most people use WordPress accounts, followed by google accounts. Oh and if you are wondering, how to add an avatar to your account, well, that’s a bit unintuitive. Here’s how to do it: You’ll need to sign up at http://www.gravatar.com with the email address that you’ve associated in your blog with your admin user account, and upload you image to gravatar.com. After you’ve done that your gravatar.com image will appear whenever you post on your own blog or on other WordPress blogs (if you put that email address into the mail field of the comment form at that other blog). I hope that helps.
