    Often Asked - How-to Add an Avatar Photo

    For some time I have been trying to get my profile photo to show up on the forums. All profile photos appear except for mine even though it appears in my profile page. It is 87x100, 19.5kb. I went to general settings>thread display options> show visible elements & checked signatures, avatars & images then saved. I also allowed the vcard to download. I would be grateful if someone can tell me what I am missing. Gassho. Ka

    Give this a try and let me know if it works for you. =)

    Here is a walk through in creating or changing your Avatar:

    1. Click on "Settings" in the user profile section.
    2. Scroll down to the "My Settings" box and click "Edit Avatar" in the My Profile section.
    3. Click the "Use Custom Avatar" radio button.
    4. Enter a URL in the Option 1 box if the custom image you wish to use is on a website. Ensure that the image meets the requirements for size listed below the box. If the custom image is stored on your computer, click the "Browse" button in the Option 2 box, select the file and click "Open."
    5. Click "Save Changes" to see the avatar as it will appear on the site. The avatar will appear alongside your user name when you post a message on the site. New avatar's retroactively appear with previous posts.

    Q: I cannot upload my picture for my profile because it is too large. How can I re-size my picture to conform to the forums image upload requirements?

    A: A quick and easy way to do this is to visit
    and follow the instructions given there. Also if you have re-sized your image and are certain it meets the 80 px by 80px @ 72 ppi requirements yet still cannot upload your image you can visit or or any image hosting service and upload your image to be hosted, for free, there. and use the "Link to off-site Avatar" option
