    Phew, got there. Even finding the obscure little place to login at the the bottom of the page took several minutes.

    Cool stuff, Bob, looks good.

    I just need to figure out avatar updates via the gravatar thingy. Takes me back to the V-bulletin days of yore.

    Yay!
    Interpreted the secret coordinates, found the route on the correct map, knocked three times, uttered the password and finally arrived.
    Mine’s a beer please, before we start.

      Am I looking in the wrong place?
      Trying to add my avatar. Looked at edit profile, but cannot see anyway to add an avatar.

          Sorry, I think I must be particurly stupid, as still cannot see how to add my avata.
          I have gone to profile. Looked then to Edit but still can’t see any input boxes to upload my picture.

            I definitely don’t have that option on my profile page.

            You definitely do. Once logged in there is a black ribbon menu above or to the left, on a phone I couldn’t tell you.

  • #10992

    Yay. Finally here. Completely forgot that I’d used a different name on the beta site (that I never got into). Thanks guys.
    Also screwed up on the password when that was set up. When the initial password was displayed, I expected the reset password button to take me to a reset password page, but the password went poof & I hadn’t noted it.
    All I need now is to change my id to my ‘normal’…

      If you update your ‘display name’ that is what people will see. If you want a new profile email me.

    How to set up an avatar?

    On the edit profile page only these 4 items appear for me:

    Name
    Contact Info
    About Yourself
    Account

    There is no ‘profile picture’ header/option listed.

      You need to register with Gravatar – https://en.gravatar.com/ – and upload your physog. Then it magically appears, at least it did for me.

        Thanks for the Gravatar link.

        It appears that ‘unknownknowns’ is already being used with WordPress.com.

        Is WordPress.org the same group? I log-in here OK but fail on WordPress.com.

        So, I guess that a white silhouette will have to suffice for now.

    I’m in, a smart arse for embracing 21st Century information technology and getting in here.

    P.S. I’m also old.

    The Anglo Saxons have arrived.

    Thankyou for your efforts Swiss and Zip.

    I’ll also echo what was just said above, there appears to be no option to select a custom avatar.

      You have to go into your profile and then register with gravatar, easily done once registered.

    Just a test to see whether I need to set up my avatar as I am already set up on gravatar.
