    I just uploaded a new profile picture, but it's not showing up. I can see it in the control panel but not next to any of my posts...not even the ones I made subsequently. What gives?

    Your "Avatar" (not Profile Picture) is what shows next to your name.

    Thanks guys, I couldn't find the controls for avatar so I assumed profile picture was it. LOL I'm such a noob sometimes :redface:

    I've tried multiple times to upload an avatar with no success. When I browse for the picture and click Save Changes I just get a message that says Unable to save image. I created an 80 x 80 pixel image of 16kb which is within spec.

    To change your avatar you need to go to the drop-down menu near the top of the forums called "Forum Actions" and then "Edit Profile". Then look for Edit Avatar under general settings on the left side of the page.

    I wonder how many posts are needed to enable the avatar function?
