This should work on all Yii versions (That has widgets working in them), But was tested on version 1.0.9 & 1.1.x .


Inside your view file just paste the following code:

																  'email' => '', // email to display the gravatar belonging to it
																  'hashed' => false, // if the email provided above is already md5 hashed then set this property to true, defaults to false
																  'default' => '', // if an email is not associated with a gravatar this image will be displayed,
																																   // by default this is omitted so the Blue Gravatar icon will be displayed you can also set this to
																																   // "identicon" "monsterid" and "wavatar" which are default gravatar icons
																  'size' => 50, // the gravatar icon size in px defaults to 40
																  'rating' => 'PG', // the Gravatar ratings, Can be G, PG, R, X, Defaults to G
																  'htmlOptions' => array( 'alt' => 'Gravatar Icon' ), // Html options that will be appended to the image tag
