The "Profile Picture" section just disappeared from my User Profile.

How do I get it back?


  • Nothing in WordPress structure should change without interaction of an admin/user. Did you change the theme? Activate/deactivate a plugin?

The profile picture is shown in your profile only if you have the Show Avatar option enabled in the discussion settings.

Head over to Settings > Discussions and under Avatars section, enable the Show Avatars checkbox and save the changes.

Now you can see that your profile picture is back in your profile.
