Gravatar not updated

Hello,
I changed my avatar on GRAVATAR a month ago, but I noticed that was not updated on this site. Is this normal or it's a bug?
Usually when I change my gravatar it gets updated on every site/forum I use my gravatar.
sorry for my bad english

That's pretty interesting.
The current url used here is:
http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/3649c4260adb157300c67a59d99ac094;s=125&r=pg
picked directly from gravatar.com servers.

Funny thing is that using this url:
https://en.gravatar.com/site/check/
to checked your email address (always gravatar.com, so no problem of email theft ;)), the url generated is:
https://s.gravatar.com/avatar/3649c4260adb157300c67a59d99ac094?s=80

At first I thought it was a problem of the different domain (www. instead of s.), but testing it out a bit, changing any parameter of the url, the gravatar shows the new one, while using exactly that url shows the "old" one!
And it's not even a problem of browser's cache, because I even used Konqueror (KDE browser) that I usually open just the first time I install the operating system and I never, ever used to browse this forum. Pasting the url http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/3649c4260adb157300c67a59d99ac094;s=125&r=pg it returns the "old" avatar.

That's pretty funny indeed...

Now I have to go, but this evening I'll do some more tests.

My gravatar changed here, I didn't do anything to my account here or on gravatar. Was this solved with the latest release of elkarte?

Not that I know of ... I think what I'm seeing is still your old one.  

What I see on the site is what I put in that first link but I think what your current one is the second link. 
Squish squish. squish, squish, squish.
Find a bug,

http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/3649c4260adb157300c67a59d99ac094;s=125&r=pg is the old one and
http://www.gravatar.com/avatar/3649c4260adb157300c67a59d99ac094?s=125&r=pg is the new one

Can it be as simple as changing that first ; to a ?
I just realized now that actually, our url is not passing the size & rating as parameters, but it "just" an url because the first semi-colon should really be a question mark...
Just not to forget about https://github.com/elkarte/Elkarte/issues/2342

OK ... my turn now.  :)  My Gravatar will not update either on a Elkarte site I set up for someone else. However, the Gravatar did update for here. Other site is on Version 1.0.6.

If you have a simple code insert to fix this please post it and I will give it a try.

Below are the installed addons. Plus I think I have every avatar from here installed also.

Thanks ...

In Load.php, if you search for:
Code: [Select]
';s=
you should find two instances that have to be replaced with:
Code: [Select]
'?s=
At least if my memory serves me right.

Your memory has served you well.  :)    Those two changes instantly fixed the non-updating Gravatar.

Thanks!
