How to disable Gravatar

Hello, I’m trying to disable Gravatar on my Gitlab Server.

I was trying the gitlab_rails[‘gravatar_enabled’] = false solution that is not working any more when I found this post:

So I am currently looking to find in the admin area where to disable Gravatar, and I couldn’t find it. In which sub menu is it located?

In fact, I am not sure disabling Gravatar (still not found yet) is the solution. My Gitlab server as no acces to the internet. So I just would like to avoid trying to connect to

Thank you


that setting was removed from gitlab.rb some years ago, you can only control this via the administrative web account. Navigate to Admin Area > Settings > General > Account and Limit and remove the Gravatar enablement.
