Trouble updating my profile picture
« on: November 28, 2018, 12:39:51 AM »
I don't see a way to update my profile picture on the site. What am I missing?

Additionally, the option to "change cover image" in my profile doesn't appear to work either.

ANy help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
-N

To change your profile picture, go to your profile by clicking on your username in the sidebar of a thread or by clicking on the icon in the menu bar at the top.  Then select Modify Profile > Forum Profile.  Your avatar options are the first thing in the body of the page.

I'm afraid I don't see the Change Cover Image option, so I can't see if it's working for me.

I've never gotten the change cover image to work. It's a little camera icon if your looking at your profile to modify it. If I click it, it just gives me the option to change my avatar. 🤷

Oh!  I never noticed that before.  Yeah, it doesn't work for me, either.  It just takes me back to my Forum Profile page (where I can change my avatar).

Haha, thanks all. I got it figured out (and am happy with the bubbles too).
