Question About Avatars

Postby PeteSinCA » Sun Feb 23, 2014 8:47 am

I would like to add an avatar so folks think of me as something other than a pastel blue square. I have a picture that is probably suitable - I use it on other discussion sites - but the jpg is on my computer. The board SW here only give the options of selecting an avatar from an onsite library or from some other Internet site. Could a third option be added, uploading from my computer, be added/enabled?

You can upload from your computer. In fact, if I want an avatar picture, I have to save it to my photos first, and then upload it. Stupid iPhone won't let me copy and paste pictures at all.

I don't see that option in this board's User Control Panel, Rick.

Storage folder was not writable. Now it is and there is option in the User Control Panel -> Profile -> Edit avatar to upload from local pc.

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
