Okay, I know I'm a computer idiot, but I can not find where to add a photo to my profile. Can anyone help? :confused:

Hey Hobie:

Next to Log Out, click on Settings, then go to edit avatar. Click on use custom avatar and add your pic.
Let me know if that works for you!

Since there's no avatar, I'm guessing it didn't work.

As I recall, once you upload your photo, there's something at the top of the page that you have to click to say it's what you want to do. I kept getting error messages: I could see the photo and I'd click "save" and I'd get a message that said it didn't load. Once I clicked whatever was at the top, it worked.

Make sure you are sizing it right.

Remember to set the avatar size to 100 when creating your avatar.

Next are the steps for adding your avatar to your profile here on the forum.

3. Click on "edit avatar"
4. If loading your own image click browse next to "Upload from your machine" and choose the file you downloaded from the above avatar creator.
5. If using one from the gallery then click gallery at the bottom and choose an image.
6. Last but not least click submit at the bottom of the page.

That's it, you now have an avatar :grin:

No problems, except that I forgot to check back to this thread for 3 days! But I'm at work now, and my photos are at home, so now we wait to see how long it takes to remember a second time!

I'll try to post one I have here. But look fast! I will probably change it to something bee-ish shortly!

Changed it again. Thought it would be more appropriate to have me sailing a Hobie Cat!
