Use Gravatar to add profile photos in CardBoard

Did you know that you can add more personality to your CardBoard account using Gravatar’s profile photo feature? It is quite simple!

Just follow these three simple steps:

STEP 1: Create a WordPress Account

Head over to WordPress and create an account. Be sure to use the same email address in WordPress as CardBoard.

After that, WordPress will prompt you to create a username and a site URL.

The username and site URL will not be reflected in CardBoard.

Name these fields what ever you would like.

STEP 2: Head Over to Gravatar

After you have created your WordPress account, then head over to Gravatar.

At the top of the screen you will see a place where you can sign in with your newly created WordPress account.

Be sure that the email matches the account email associated with your CardBoard account. This is how CardBoard will pull the profile photo from Gravatar.

STEP 3: Upload an Image

In Gravatar, go up to your profile manager on the upper right hand of the screen. When you hover over your current profile photo, you will see a section labeled “Add an image.”

Click and upload a file from your computer.
