OK, I've tried following your directions and I'm not doing it right!

step 7 is where I'm messing up

I can't find an "open button on the bottom right hand side"

Sorry, I'm just no good at this kind of thing.

Thanks so much for the directions to add avatars.  I always wanted to add one and could never figure it out.

Thanks again

Patti

I dont get where your not following the steps at. The open button is on the selection menu which by then you should have open.

Try a hard refresh. Hold down ctrl+F5.

My avatar has been missing for over a week now.  I've changed from a new one to an old one, resized the new one, deleted and reloaded several times for different ones, followed Chris B's directions to the letter several times, and still none show up.  Help please!  On my settings page, it shows the icon as being there.  Oh, and I tried the Ctrl+F5 thing too.

Kim, if I 'm not mistaken your avatar won't show up because of your privacy settings.
