My Module isn't showing

If you're using {loadmoduleid ##}, replace the ## with your module ID number. If you're using the {loadposition xx} shortcode, replace the xx with the position text.

Also, make sure you have the Menu Assignment set to the page(s) you want the module to load on correctly selected.

There's an error or the Gravatar icon isn't showing
This is most likely due to you, or your user(s) not being logged into your website. The module relies on the email address of the account holder to pull the correct icon from Gravatar. Please make sure your module is loading behind an account wall.
