    Hi guys,

    Need some help: I can't change my avatar picture? When I click on the image, nothing happens. In the right top corner the symbol keeps on 'rolling', but that's' it.

    Thanks for any help.

    Try this: (It works like this for me)

    1 Position cursor over your name.
    2 Select 'Avatar'

    2.

    On the next screen, select 'Browse' and then locate the picture you want to use.
    Note: It is best if you have a square picture, or you will have some of cut off.

    Let me know how you get on. :Hey:

    That works! Thanks.
    But in the long run, the site should be adapted, as the 'click on the avatar to change image' does not work.

    @dbrooks65 try 'Ctrl' + 'F5' together to refresh everything and then let me know if it rectifies it.

    As @Nels said, it's just because the old avatar is "cached" by your browsers (saves the image so it doesn't have to reload it every time you load a page), using Ctrl + F5 forces you to clear the cache when you refresh :Smile:

    Is there a version that works on an iMAC?

    Have changed my avatar this morning, but the "Control + F5" doesn't do the job - so I now have two going at the same time. Sounds like I need to clear the "cache" but my technical skills aren't that good...

    Help please!

    Ignore me, I think it has sorted itself by logging out and logging back in again AND doing the "Control + F5" think, then refreshing.

    I AM A TECHNICAL GENIUS!!

    :Laughing:

    I spoke too soon...it has changed them in some places, but not in all.

    Back to asking for help!!

    Command + R on a Mac mate, and that's just for the current page - if there's other pages still showing the old one do it there as well. It'll update itself when your cached version drops naturally, just takes a few days.

    Thanks @DeviateDefiant

    The new one seems to be showing in most places on my iPad now, so must be gradually sorting itself!

    I see it now too, I purposefully didn't clear my cache to see how long it naturally took (I think I have it set to expire after a week but cannot remember).
