Changing the P2PU-Disqus avatar

I noticed that almost all the participants in our course use the same “default” blue-and-white disqus avatar. I also checked “How do I make a P2PU Course?” and many of the recent comments use the default avatar.

I decided to create a new user to verify all the registration and commenting process. I created a new user but I couldn’t find how to change the avatar for the comments. If I remember correctly when I first registered to P2PU I didn’t have to do anything special. The P2PU avatar appeared automatically in my comments.

Has anything changed since then?

How can a new user change the avatar for the Disqus comments at the bottom of each page of content?

Thanks :smile:

Hey @jaumebarcelo

The SSO integration between P2PU and Disqus should put your P2PU avatar on disqus also. I’ll try to take a look into it when I get a chance, but I can’t make any promises about it right now.

Thanks for the explanation :slight_smile:

Something is definitely buggy. If I am not logged into P2PU, I can post a comment after logging into Disqus, without logging into P2PU. In this case Disqus will use my associated icon from whatever service I use to authenticate - twitter, G+, FB. If I am logged into P2PU, I don’t need to re-log in to Disqus, but my P2PU profile picture doesn’t show up next to me comment. Instead Disqus uses the default P2PU stick figure.

For the moment I’m totally confused? The data I’m getting from their API and the images that shows up seems to be different? If I go to I see two different default avatars?

It may be that it takes some time for profile images to propagate through their CDN? @jaumebarcelo have you noticed that more avatars appear over time or does it seem to simply stay the same?

Well, I created my dummy profile two days ago and I still get the blue-and-white Disqus default image when I post a comment.

I see comments of other users that registered a couple of weeks ago and they also get the default blue-and-white Disqus avatar.

By the way, now Disqus is refusing to load for me in chromium
Version 31.0.1650.63 Ubuntu 13.10 (31.0.1650.63-0ubuntu0.13.10.1~20131204.1)


And after reporting these minour issues, I want to take the opportunity to congratulate the p2pu team for your amazing work and for being so friendly :smiley: P2PU is just awesome and it is totally the way to go.
