I will look like an idiot with my questions ... but could not succeed to do this :-(

Several issues:

1. What do you refer to as the "home page"?

2. Can't find an "My Account" tab anywhere on this forums?

....

 

HELP

1] The "Home Page" is the opening page of geocaching.com (not the forums);

2] Find "My Account" "Account Details" within the "Your Profile" tab near the top left of the Home Page (above).

 

The opening page of geocaching.com has changed (a few times) since those quoted instructions were written.

Okay, I've uploaded photos, chosen them for avatar and profile pictures, saved the changes, removed them again, picked them again, signed out of the forums, and signed back in. Let's see if it works this time around. This is the process to get a picture to appear along with my user name, right?

 

ETA: Still not working. Oh well - back to geocaching!

One last test.

 

ETA:

Okay, obviously I'm not understanding the instructions on how to make my avatar photo appear on the forums. The layout of the website has changed since the original instructions on this thread were created, but I've tried to mimic, as best as I can, the steps in the first post.

 

On the Geocaching.com website I've deselected (removed) the avatar photo, saved changes, logged out, logged back in, reselected the photo, saved changes, logged out, and logged back in. I've logged out of Groundspeak's website in the process and logged back in. Haven't been able to get the picture to appear.

 

On a related issue, my chose siggy isn't appearing either.

 

Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks!
