How to change profile/avatar photo?

Hi,

Where do I go to insert my profile picture? I have looked over the edit profile page w/o luck.

Ride Safe,

Joe

Hi bmwjoe, and welcome to the community! Click "settings" in the upper right-hand corner, then you will see the "My Settings" area in a column on the left side of the page.

Further - I can not get an avatar to show on my posts. Clicking on my name, on a post I made, will take you to my profile, and there is the avatar... What is the missing link?

A bit confusing, but the picture below your name on your profile page is your 'profile picture', which is different from the avatar seen by your name in posts.

Go to Settings (upper right of the page)->My Settings (third heading on left panel)->Edit Avatar (third option, just below Edit Profile Picture).

Thank you, but I've done that.

I've attempted to load directly from the file on my computer, which seemingly results in nothing happening, and from Photobucket, which results in, IIRC, illegal file, or some similar error.

Might you have another thought, this is bugging me - never had this trouble on any other forum.

I've reported your issue and hopefully another Mod or Admin will be able to figure it out. If not, then we'll send a note to the Techs at IB.
