WordPress is integrated with gravatar.com to display your globally recognized avatar.
To assign avatars to your users or various admins, first make sure that each of your users has their own profile. You can create new user profiles in the “User” section of admin.
Next, sign up for an account at http://www.gravatar.com using the same email address that was used to create the User profile in WordPress admin. Upload an image to gravatar.com. This gravatar image is now associated with that specific User and their image will appear next to the content they post. This image will also appear when the user posts comments on other WordPress blogs (as long as they use the associated email address when commenting).
In WordPress Admin, navigate to: Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the widget titles from the lists on the left side to the “Sidebar” sections on the right side. You can also drag and drop the widgets up or down within each Sidebar to change their placement above or below other widgets.
Create a New page and assign it to “Portfolio” Template. Template selections are found on the right side of the Page Edit screen under Attributes.
