    Question How do i add a picture to my Site Name - not signature

    Hi guys,

    Honestly i have trawled looking for this but i can't find either how to do it or someone else asking. (even in the 4 instances of people asking how to update their signature)

    How do i add a picture to the area that displays my site name i.e. like Steve's 'WS' logo or Grimly's "Rab C" image. The bit where it displays Forum Apprentice and hopefully mega supporter in my case.

    Its neither urgent nor particularly important so i thought i would ask it as a Sunday Question (even though its our first day back in the office here in Saudi).

    Thanks Cowboy didn't know that it was called an avatar so had missed that in the settings area.

    That is not "WS".

    That's my initials, "SW".

    If you look closely, it even includes my middle initial.

    Next thing for you to deal with will be this requirement.

    /////////////QUOTE
    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
    /////////////ENDQUOTE

    Use what ever photo-image editor you have. Crop so is square, then resize to 80 pixel..... and hope it is less than 19.5kb, and is a recognizable image. If not; I dont know what else to say.

    Other thing is interpreting that "whichever is smaller".
    I dont know if that that means whichever is smaller can not exceed the maximum but the other one can. .....


    Later Note:
    Okay, now see that you have an avatar in use.
