    Seemed to have lost my profile photo and it’s asking me all sorts of personal questions to use Gravatar (Whatever that is)

    Just want to paste a profile photo link to my forum comments any suggestions.

    Yep, I’m with Boogieya – I just want to drop in my old photo. Is there any way to do this without engaging with Gravatar?

    See what we can do. You can maybe understand it’s been a frustrating start with the new site, but hopefully we’ll get everything back on track gradually.

    I am having the same or a similar issue. I decided to update my avatar, while the forum is quiet.

    Okay, firstly, I assume you have the pic saved to your computer?

    Now go to “Edit My Profile”, then on the left hand side, go to “Media”, click on Add New. Then where it says Drop Files to Upload or Select Files, choose Select Files. Then pick the photo you want. Now click on Edit My Profile again and scroll down PAST where it mentions the profile picture/Gravatar business. Ignore that bit altogether. Just below it there is another section about changing your Avatar. That’s the one you use. You click on Choose from Media Library and it will take you to our media library where hopefully your picture will now be, click on it and press “Set as avatar”, then refresh your browser and you should be set.

    That might all sound confusing, but you can do it in seconds once you know what you’re doing.

    Ian, yesterday, I uploaded an image from my PC to act as my avatar. The upload went fine, but is doesn’t appear next to my posts.

    Ian, there was in delay in my avatar appearing. I edited my above post to reflect this fact, for whatever reason the edit didn’t work. Anyway,the problem is resolved.
