Discourse Slow to Assign / Update Profile Picture from Gravatar


(Robocoder99) #1

Hey, I have a discourse instance hooked up to wordpress via the wp-discourse plugin with SSO enabled. I do NOT have the “sso overrides avatar” option selected. When a user creates an account on the main wp site then uses that account via sso to login to discourse i get an empty image for that user for a long time, then it will finally either assign it the default system image or it will assign it the gravatar image. That period is too long and I have many people on the forums with no avatar whatsoever and it looks bad. Anything I can do?

How long of a period are we talking here?

About 4 hours the last time it happened. It’s nothing forum breaking, but it would be great to have that time shortened.

On what version of Discourse are you?
