    In the box where you type your message there is a strip across the top with symbols.Select the tree picture(second from the right) and take it from there.

    You can only put the profile photo on from a computer,/laptop, not iPad unfortunately

    I assumed Kay was talking about her profile pic. That can't be done on iPad, or is that just me can't do it

    did you put yours on via iPad Chrissy? Without Facebook.

  • I'm pretty sure it was I.pad, I can't remember using the laptop for the forum.

  • Scrub that last posting, I think I did do my avatar on my laptop.

    Well, I've tried but there is nowhere I can put my profile picture on with my iPad. The advice from plant pauper put a picture on my message board. I'll have to use my laptop.

    KayL, I think there is a difference between adding a profile picture / avatar (the one that appears next to your name - mine's a snakeshead fritillary) and adding a picture to a post. The former seems to be impossible on most phones and tablets, the latter is easier and more useful in general, but still doesn't see to work on most phones. It does however work on my Android tablet, and others imply it works on an iPad too.

    If I'm teaching my grandmother to suck eggs, I apologise. 

    So, to change your profile pic, you have to go to your settings and click on the 'edit' button that appears on the picture. It may only work on a laptop / desktop for you - try it.

    To add a picture to a post, do you have a toolbar appearing above your text when you type? If so, you need to click on the little tree image (green splodge) in that toolbar, then click on Browse and locate the image that you've saved on your device. Once you've located it, you can upload it to the post. I'm struggling to remember the exact wording of the buttons but it's something like Browse - Upload - Save. It sometimes takes a few seconds to upload or save, so don't give up straight away if nothing appears to be happening. 

    Hope that helps.

    PS If you *don't* have a toolbar appearing, go to Settings - Forum settings and make sure you've got Advanced editor switched on.
