    Hi there!

    Right so I've been having a few issues every since I've been browsing this forum, so if anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated :)

    Firstly my profile picture doesn't show for some reason, it's the correct size so I have no idea?

    Finally the one thing that is really annoying, is that whenever I click on a thread to read, the first post of the thread will be on the last page, so I have to go to the last page every time to get to the start and read the thread backwards to everyone else. Any ideas?

    I hope someone can help me, especially with the thread issue as it's a real pain!

    Thanks,
    Brian.

    To fix the the thread issue go to the 'Settings' tab in the top right of the page then go to the 'General Settings' option on the left hand side and select the option 'Thread Display Mode: Linear oldest first'.

    For your avatar pic it needs to be 100x100 pixels. I've found the easiest way to change this is to open the image in paint and use the resize option and resize by pixel count.

    Hope that made some sort of sense :D.

    Red's instructions are spot on
