I've noticed gravatar hashes get an extra 's' after the actual hash. It seems to be because of the code in in askbot-0.6.65-py2.6.egg\askbot\templatetags\extra_tags.py@L16 which should be:
As of now, it prevents me from getting my actual updated gravatar image. Is it a typo or is it normal?
As a side note.. I've changed the aforementionned file code, removed all PYC files in askbot directory, restarted the web server and emptied my browser cache but, still, it does not fix it. What am I doing wrong? (Sorry, first time with Django!)
Thanks for your time and consideration!
Ben, I think that your gravatar change has not yet propagated through various caches, there is no problem with retrieving the images as you can see on this site.
the extra "s" is a formatting character for a string substitution, it is necessary to recognize the "gravatar_hash" variable as string and insert the value into the url.
Here are python docs on string formatting.
edit actually you are right, the gravatars have an extra s that does not belong there, but apparently it has no effect. Looks like you've discovered a "gravatar law". In fact it does not change if you append more characters.
The extra "s" comes from a template macro "gravatar" in file
askbot/skins/default/templates/macros.html. The code that you've mentioned is not in use now, will eventually be removed.
Right on, Evgeny. There is indeed a cache issue here.
Still, all pictures hashes end with the 's' character. Right on this question page, for instance, your gravatar picture URI is:
would work (better?)
For instance, take a look at mine:
returns a different picture than
Edit: I read Python docs, and while I completely agree with you and the documentation, I do not get why the results are what they are... this is disturbing. Anyway, as you mentionned, the gravatar images are getting updated so it's not very important. :-)
Thanks for your time anyway!
