    How do I upload an avatar? I have one in a word file but every time I've tried to upload it, it says "invalid file."

    It is the right size, so that's not the problem.

    I'm not used to doing this - in fact, I've never done it as my old computer was too slow and I've had this one only a short time.

    Thanks!

    I think they have to be .jpg or .jpeg. Try moving your picture to www.flickr.com (I have found that to be the easiest site to post pics on the BB) or some similar free storage site (photobucket, etc.) then uploading it.

    If you still can't get it up, email me your avatar and I will put it up for you. :)

    Thanks! I'll try this - maybe not tonight but sometime soon.

    If I can't do it, I'll email you. Thanks so much!

    You're very welcome. There are still some ladies in the WPF that have me upload their pictures for them. I don't mind doing it at all.

    Actually, I'm still learning the ropes of this new format too, believe it or not. I much preferred the old one. I still haven't mastered the 'attachments' on this one.
