For those of you struggling to change your avatar and other bits and pieces.. Its not so obvious on the theme we use with PhpBB3 but what you need to do after logging in is go to the top right menu :-
Once you select your profile you now have access to all the information areas to add your personal data aswell as add your avatar. Avatars are generally around 90 x 90 and can be uploaded directly from your PC or find one online you can stick its URL into one of the boxes.
Most personal features and information can be edited from these menus. If you are struggling with this or need help adjusting your avatar picture drop me an email.
