I have just become a member and have uploaded my avatar: I resized it and my 10 photos using Picasa Export.

How do I take a look to see whether my profile is now finished?

Clicking on my name above does not show much.

Thank you

Well – I don't see your picture in its place next to this post, so something isn't right yet.

Did you follow these instructions: /forum/how-to-use-this-forum/create-or-change-your-avatar/#p29

setting up your picture at gravatar.com is the easiest way.

When I try to edit my profile this message shows up:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 64 bytes) in /home/content/11/4657411/html/wp-includes/pomo/mo.php on line 202

I have tried  several times to download Gravatar with no success.  It is not in my download folder.Frown

Margaret,

The error message you saw was a problem on our end.  I have fixed that now – so try again.

Gravatar is not something you download.  You go to http://www.gravatar.com and add your email address – then upload your picture there.  Gravatar takes care of linking your email to that picture and it will show up in your profile here (as well as lots of other places on the web)

I have had my email address and photo confirmed by Gravatar now so that should fix my problem.

Can you see whether it has gone through OK?

Thank you so much for your patience and help.

Yes, I can see now that the avatar is OK but could you tell me where my 10 photos I uploaded are?

 I am learning my way around this forum: I have really only used Picasa forums before.

Thanks again.

Yes – nice to see you!

As for your 10 photos, did you upload them using Gravatar?  If so, that's where they are – you should be able to go back there and choose any one of them to be used for your profile pic.
