    When I go to edit avatar, it say "no avatar specified" and the "do not use avatar" option is checked in the circle and cannot be un-checked. How do I specify the avatar I want to upload from my comp, and how do I indicate that I do want to use an avatar?Could anybody solve this mystery? thanks:confused::)

    Hi, I think it is blocked till you have 4 or more posted. To stop spam all new member posts are moderated until they have posted 3 posts, after that the forum software treats them differently.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you for clearing that up. It won't be hard to do 3 more posts talking to people about the Camino de Santiago. Have a great week-end!!

    Hi Leslie...
    I have never been able to add a "signature" in this forum. No problem with avatar. I add the signature..it shows up on the edit page and on the profile page but never shows up in forum. Is there a secret to this? (the show your signature box is ticked)

    I really like that with very little effort, most of my questions are answered before I even ask them!

    I don't seem to be able to add an avatar. I uploaded a photo that does appear on my profile page but there are options available to set it as an avatar. I am using an iPad so maybe a problem with that or Safari browser? Any had similar problem or solved it? Is there a post minimum before an avatar can be added? No signature option either...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Orava,

    You need to hit the Settings button at the top of the screen then select Edit Avatar on the left side of the screen. The image needs to be a maximum of 80 pixels x 80 pixels and a maximum of 19.5kb. I used the Browse option to select my Avatar then hit the Save Changes button at the bottom of the page.

    Hope this helps.

    Mike

    The easiest way to add you photo is by using https://en.gravatar.com/ - if you sign up using the same email address as you use on the forum.

    The advantage of this is most forum will use this same system and therefore it saves time. Also commenting on blogs will pull the same image.

    I think the layout has changed since my original post in January last year. Click on your user name at the top right of the screen then click on your avatar photo to change it.

    Good luck,

    Mike
