Gravatar Hovercards

A Gravatar is your profile on the web, and the Hovercard is one way your information is made visible to others. It’s an easy way to help people find your blog, or access your identity on other services like Twitter, Facebook, or Linkedin.

Viewing a Hovercard

Hovercards appear when you place your mouse over any Gravatar. Here’s an example of what it looks like:

Viewing your Hovercard

Go to Settings -> Discussions in your Dashboard, and scroll down to the Avatar section. You will see a sample of your Hovercard. You can also just look at any comment you’ve left on another WordPress.com blog.

Turning off Hovercards on your blog

You can turn off Hovercards by going to Settings -> Discussions, and scroll down to the Avatar section. You’ll see a checkbox for Gravatar Hovercards. This will disable hovercards on your blog.

Turning off Hovercards for all WordPress.com blogs

As a visitor you can disable all Hovercards by clicking on Turn off hovercards in the bottom right corner of any Hovercard.

Note: That this only disables it for you, not for anyone else.

Re-enabling Hovercards

To re-enable Hovercards that have been disabled with the Turn off hovercards option you will need to delete the cookie nohovercard from the domain .wordpress.com.
