Changing your forum name and avatar


There seems to be some confusion on how to change our forum user names and avatars (profile pictures.) Hopefully this will help. Even though there’s an area to view profile settings on the Forum, we can’t make changes there because the forum is linked to the main site. So, we have to go to the main site to make changes.

First, click on the “My Account” link at the top right of the page.

Next, click on the “Edit” button on your profile page.

Finally, you’ll see entries for your Avatar and Nickname. Upload a picture from your computer and change the Nickname to something you’d like others to see on the forum. Don’t forget to click Save when done!

My avatar picture won't come through can you help me?
New to forum How do I change my picture profile?
New web page

Whoa, thanks!


Thanks man. I was looking for a way to do that.


Good Job Mark.

It took me a short while to figure this out and I have Hosted Bulletin Boards before. No two are the same.


Hi, Mark, thanks for posting. I used this procedure and successfully changed my avatar for the main site. But that does not seem to affect my avatar for the forum; I still only have the gray silhouette. Any idea how to get the Forum to recognize my avatar? Thanks in advance.


I’ll have to get my web guy to check this out…can’t figure it out. Thanks for your patience!


Thanks, in the meantime I’ll try with a different image.


@Michael If you have not already done this, you might just try logging out and logging back in. I use multiple computers all day and noted that the other computers did not update certain items until I logged out of the sight on that specific computer and then logged back in. It;s worth a try any way.


I had that problem once and had to use a completely different picture to get it to work. If that doesn’t fix it, Steve’s idea is good to try. If it still doesn’t work, it has to be something on the backend that will take some programming magic to fix.


Thanks, already tried that.


I’m putting in a request to my web dev guy for your Michael…thanks for your patience.
