How do I add my avatar?
« on: March 12, 2019, 10:50:37 pm »
This must have been asked many times before, but I'm new to this forum and haven't been able to find the answer.  I go to Profile > Forum Profile and choose Upload an avatar, then click where it says to choose a file, and I select a JPG from my hard drive.  But after clicking on Change, a message tells me that the file can't be uploaded.  I see that another option is to enter an URL, but none of my photos have an URL.

This function is not working. It has been reported but seems a few times over the couple years I have been in the Community.  So seems not being able to upload an avatar is something we'll just have to live with.

Thanks, I'm glad to know it wasn't something stupid I was doing.

And its so, SO easy give the avatar-folder permission to let someone upload an avatar...
Don't understand why the webmaster doesnt do it, its not an securityrisk.
