Adding Avatars and Changing Forum Link
« on: October 11, 2017, 09:15:09 PM »
I just got my site installed. I had a Vbulletin site, but just never could get any traction so back with a ROCK SOLID System. I have a question. I have been trying to figure out it for myself, but not sure how http://snrj.konusal.com/index.php?theme=11 [nofollow]  How do you add your advatar? I am the ADMIN and can't figure out how to add my picture or avatar? Or how a new person will do it? I have it set up to moderate my posts for starters as I am just trying to help survivors of aortic disseases and give something back.  Kind Regards
Brian Tinsley  www.aorticdissection.com [nofollow]... Still also trying to figure out how to change my Forum link at the top to go to my new site LOL :L)

Avatars are added in your own profile

The link can only be changed by modifying the index.template.php file for your theme(s)

Hi,

I  am sorry but I don't understand? Will new members be prompted to add an avatar? Or why can't I add my own? I would think this Theme would come with them. But.. If I need to find them and upload them, that is fine too! I just need to know.. ..

Step 1 do this
Step 2 to that
Step 3  your done..

Thanks,
Brian

Members are not required to select an avatar, it's an option in Profile -> Forum Profile.

Ok.. Great.. I will figure out how to upload these. Also, I have tried and tried and searched and search, I am trying to change the name in the upper right hand corner of my new Forum to say  Sharing out stories together. however, is says "out" vs "ours" and I can't figure out how to change that or the word aortic in the upper left hand corner. I would have hoped it would be EASY to change, but I tried everywhere to change it and can't figure it out LOL :) Please any ideas? thanks! Brian :)

Try Admin>>Configuration>>Current Theme

Most likely will be a box that says "Site Slogan" or something similar. Change the slogan there

make sure that you auto-resize each avatar.

Admin > Forum > Attachments and Avatars > Avatar Settings ... check resize
