My Members Area profile card simply shows a circle with my initials on a coloured background in a circle. How do I change this to my portrait.
The simplest way to add a photograph to your members profile is by editing your Members Profile card. You can access this in a number of ways, but the easiest is by selecting the "Members" option in the header menu bar. (Depending on your display capabilities, this may be under the "More..." entry). This displays the Profile Card for each member who has joined the Forum community. To load your Member Profile page, click either the area in the circle, the dark area surrounding the circle, your name or the "My Profile" button in the card.
This then shows your Members Profile page. This consists of a Members Profile card on the left, above a vertical menu of your members pages and on the right, a box that you can use to tell us who you are.
Press the "Edit" button in the Members Profile Card. This will now allow you a) change the name displayed b) your portrait image by clicking within the circle and selecting from your PC the image you want to upload or c) to click within the area around the portrait circle to add a background image. When complete, press "Save" to save the changes. Your portrait picture should now appear in the Login bar, and against any post that you have made.
