DIY forum specific questions

I thought I had seen an area for forum specific items, but couldn't find it when I went looking.

How do I modify my avitar, signature and other forum settings?
I can change my country, job title, but I can't find the other info.
I also have an issue where when I am logged in, the threads appear backwards, where the latest post is the top post and the OP is at the very bottom of the page. Any ideas how to change this back?

Top of the page below the yellow bar...see the Tab called Forum actions? Click General Settings in there.

All your questions answers will be available on that menu page. Just explore the items on the right.

Still no luck on the signature or Avatar.
I can select a pre-defined standard avatar, but can not upload/link my own. It mentioned a custom avatar so I think it's possible somewhere.

Oops...forgot to tell you...
Members don't have signatures available...even though it may show in the controls. Also, custom avatars haven't been allowed for a while I don't believe. There may be some old time members who still have them from when they were allowed.

So I am not going blind.

Might be worth mentioning that the 'Edit Avatar' page does make reference to custom avitars. Someone with admin rights may want to adjust this.

Yeah...I think the problem is that is deep in the software...which IB doesn't own. Permissions can be changed...but they can't actually remove the option.
