Hi,

Currently, the Avatar user field can be set by either:

1) Wordpress avatar system

2) Specifying a url

Is there a way to allow users to just upload a file with a picture or symbol?

What is the Wordpress avatar system?    What do users put in the box (see attached).  My users won't know what that is.

Thanks,

- Gordon

Hi Gordon,

Please make sure the "Can upload avatar" option is enabled for the current Usergroup (Dashboard > Forums > Usergroups admin page). 

Can upload avatar

What are the rules for the size and file types that can be uploaded for an Avatar?    

Also, I am trying to require or at least encourage users to upload some kind of picture.   Right now the default is Wordpress Avatar System.  None of my users have a Wordpress Avatar so no picture gets uploaded if they don't select anything.   Can I require users to upload a file or specify a URL, e.g., by eliminating Wordpress Avatar System as an option?

Thanks,

- Gordon
