Does anyone know how to change the avatar image for the forum now? I can't seem to find any links in the profile section to change it like we used to :oops: :

Thanks in advance
Shirley :?

I don't think it's us Michelle, you used to be able to do it via the forum profile page so I think it's some sort of technical hitch since all the changes were made (usless I'm missing something :? )

I think I should have put this post in the 'support' section and admin may have answered it :oops: I'll try and contact Chris and if I find out anything I'll let you know

i'm pretty sure when some changes were done a few months back it was left off - you used to do it through the user control panel - top left of here - try emailing chris direct and ask him - it could have been left off for a reason but maybe a simple mistake?

Hi again all
received the email below in answer to the support request about changing the forum avatar picture, haven't tried it yet, will do later :D
Shirley

Unfortunately the system seems to have made the button invisible. Once you are logged in to your forum account, go to profile, and directly under edit profile you will see some arrows >> mouse over and around some of the blank space, you will see your pointer activate when it is over the invisible button. Click on it and you will see the avatar editing functions as usual. As of this point not sure when the invisible buttons will be remedied so please feel free to spread the word of the mysterious disappearing functions

Yes Wendy, I received another email from support to say try going through another browser as he could get it to work through 'Internet explorer' but not 'Firefox', I tried both and neither work so I've given up. No one seems to know what the problem is with the mysterious disappearing button :?: :?

I thought it might have something to do with profile image but it can't be that because my profile image is a different one to my Avatar :roll: :roll: :roll:

I think it's because lot's of people join the forum but not the main website Wendy, so the profile section is completely seperate
