Profile Photo

Why does it have to be so difficult to load a profile photo/avatar?

The developer of the forum software is trying to stick with the Word Press standards, the developer of Gravatar is "Automattic" and they have a large presence in the Word Press community.  The idea behind Gravatar is that you wold have one avatar across the entire web.  Gravatar is a "Globally Recognized Avatar".  You can sign into Gravatar by using your Google ID.

We have asked the developer if there is a way to directly upload avatars without using Gravatar.  We're waiting for an answer.

OK, as a solution for profile Avatars...

We have added a separate plug in that allows you to simply choose a file from your own computer to use as an avatar.  It's pretty easy, I did it.

Go to your profile, click "edit profile" at the bottom of the page.  On the backend page you see there is a new box with a couple of simple choices.  Click "Choose File", find a picture on your computer, choose it and then click the update profile button.  Your done.

That's exactly what I was looking for... I'm a dinosaur when it comes to all the computer operating systems and such, but that made the process much easier. Thanks again.
