I keep trying upload my photo to replace the generic avatar but keep getting a message that my upload exceeds the size limit. I have reduced the size of my photo down to 32Kb and it still gives me the same message. Am I doing something wrong or is this some sort of bug?

Hi Chris,

All avatars are pulled from a site called Gravatar. You can upload your gravatar here: ** you don't have permission to see this link **

FYI – this is called out in the general forum rules & info, but maybe I need to make it a little more obvious. I'll take care of it.

 

Thanks,

Bill

If you always want to direct people to use gravatar, we should probably remove the photos that are in the profiles.  I think I've now worked around the issues we were having with the user-photo plugin, but there are some things that are still a pain.

We have maybe a hundred users who have uploaded profile pictures to our site, rather than to gravatar.
