    Edit Avatar

    When you select edit avatar the following web page is displayed.

    The screen shows your current avatar (if you have one) Green Arrow.

    If you want to use a predifined avatar (if available) the image is displayed on the left hand side of the second box; the blue arrow shows the image of the avatar you can select from the pages shown.

    If you want to use your own avatar you need to specify if you are providing it from either a website (Option 1) or your computer (Option 2) (red arrows).

    It is important to note the size of the allowable avatar and the radio button which states Use Custom Avatar needs to be selected/identified.

    Editor Control

    The Editor Control allows you to select the type of text formats you can use.

    There are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

    Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.

    These selections are controlled in the pull down menu indicated by the radio buttons (Blue Arrow).

    The look-and-feel of the display can be change...it's called a "skin". For compatible skins, look in the Forum Skins section (Red Arrow).

    This forum features an enhanced editing feature and depending on your browser, you may be able to take advantage of the feature (Teal Arrow).
