    Question Profile Avatar

    Can any Admin tell me how I go about getting an avatar? When I go to settings and try to upload one, there is no feature to do this only a button saying do not use an avatar? I would attach a screenshot but I can't - see below. I will upload it and then link back to it Sending a Moderator the avatar you want for them to install seems a little long winded and I am sure they have better things to do in their day.

    Also while I am here, how can I attach a picture? I see the 'insert image' button but it wants a URL link. Is there not a simple 'attach' feature without the hassle of uploading a picture to somewhere then linking back to it?

    Hi there oily boy, I'm not 100percent sure but I had same issue in the sparkle forum and asked the same question there and was told that the avatars had been removed , this was a couple months ago I asked , as for posting pics you need to click on the button go advanced then click on manage pics , then it offers you to add files, hope this helps and regarding the avatar maybe a mod will clarify, cheers

    Thanks Kris,

    I have looked in the advanced posting feature and can't see the 'manage pics', maybe that is sometime that I can't see until I post x posts?? All I can see is 'insert image' and 'insert video'.

    Cheers Croppie, I did wonder who added that avatar

    Why was this option removed? Maybe this option will get sorted out, then I'll change it. Just have to find out how to attach a picture...
