Why can't I download a pic for my profile? It wont even let me change the avatar, there was advice here somewhere but I can't seem to find the thread...any ideas gratefully received 😕
If you go to your profile page and hover over your profile picture it says change picture. Click on that.
Next choose a file to upload this will open your documents on your device. Navigate to the picture you want click on it and then click open, or double click it.
Next click save avatar and wait for it to return to the profile page. Let me know if you still have problems
emojis are bottom left of the comment box and if you double click on th words you want to highlight it brings up a box with bold and italic
here is a link to edit your profile picture
Thank you Sharon, it worked...yayyy
it's not the one I wanted but thank you anyway 😃
Done it! yippyyy
wonderful glad you go there
I have tried following the above instructions but all I get is change avatar, it doesn't open a link to my documents.
Any ideas please?
@Sharon_K Just in case you haven't seen this Rondetto is having difficulty with the same issue
thank you Ellen,
@rondetto here are some pictures for you
Firstly hover over your avatar until the change picture comes up. Click on change picture
next you will get this screen
So now when you click on choose file it will take you to files in your computer. Choose an image and either double click it or click once and then open. This then adds the file to the folder. Then click save avatar
Hope that is clearer for you Ron
Somehow I've done it. Totally mystified as to how! DD
Deliberately undone it to change to something else: stuck again, my stupidity is the cause. 😂
I have followed your instructions to the letter and still won't let me go to choose a file. I am moderator on other sites so I know what I am doing but this isn't working for me as yet.
It just keeps taking me to "choose avatar"
I never get that "Select an image from your computer"
Is there nowhere to highlight or use emoji's on this site any more?
@rondetto please try now
Ah!!!! Got it, thanks Sharon. You are a star. Is there anywhere to highlight and put on an emoji?
Ah right, thanks Sharon, got it now. Takes a bit of getting used to. xxx
We got there in the end Ron!
