Uploading avatars


#1

Sorry if I'm being stupid but I can't see where to upload my avatar - I've looked in account settings and there's no option to do it there.

Hi Tabbycat,

It sounds like you're in the right place. On your Account Settings page you need to scroll down to the Picture section:

  • Click on ‘Browse’ and locate the image you would like to use from your computer.
  • Once you’ve chosen your image, click ‘Upload’.
  • You can crop your image by dragging the square you see to the right place.
  • When you’re done, click ‘Finish cropping’.
  • Note that after you've saved your community settings, you may need to refresh your page to display your newly uploaded avatar image.

Have a go and see if that helps. If not, let us know and we'll do what we can to help.

Best wishes,

Is the avatar section only active when you tick the option

Your community details

Just a thought.

That option appears too be slightly shaded unless its my eye sight different too the other boxs Kendo

I can neither tick or untick  "i want too be a member of the community"

other options i can tick~ untick and edit.

Interestingly I created a new profile for my wife, selected the online community option and the avatar option was live.  I skipped this section and logged out, when logged back in the avatar section has gone.

This points to a corrupt data file/table or link between members and the image/avatars store. It may just be the read only attribute needs resetting once all members are logged out.  Not a user issue, one for the forum admin team.

Hi Joanne,

I've emailed you a screenshot of the page.

I think its a security measure to prevent the use of multiple ids on this forum.

You can test it as follows:

If you are already logged into this forum and open a second page without closing the first page down it will open showing you as logged in.  ie you now have two pages open each logged into the forum.

If you log out from one of the pages and then log in again you will now find that the avatar box has disappeared and the community member tickbox is unticked and cant be reset.

I logged in as myself ,on both pages, to test it and found that it unticked the box and this removed the avatar upload too. So it seems that this problem occurs when you are already logged on and attempting to log on again from the same computer / ip address.
