How To Set Your Discourse Avatar


(Tom Lynch) #1

Setting your avatar is a great way of helping people to identify who’s who when they or you are new.

It can be intimidating many folks don’t like their own photo, but it’s really helpful!

Tips to a good avatar photo:

  • Good lighting is key
  • Shoot from at or above your eye line
  • Don’t forget to smile
  • Crop tight, focus on your face, head, shoulders

Once you’ve got the perfect shot you need to upload it:

  1. Login to Discourse

  2. Click the round icon in the top right, with your existing/temporary avatar.

  3. Click the cog icon

  4. Scroll down and click the pencil icon next to the profile picture section

  5. Click Upload Picture

  6. Select the photo, then click save changes.

Congratulations, it’s done!
