Confused can not change my profile using the phandroid app

Anybody know why I can't change my profile using the app version on my phone? I don't have an avatar while using the app. Just the Grey android. And when I go to "profile", it's "connecting to server" forever till I touch the screen.

Which version of the app are you using? The Tapatalk based version or the version with the news site tacked on as well?

Is it definitely set to show avatars? Also, are you using it over 3G or WiFi?

Going to move this to the SB&F forum too.

You don't have an avatar set, full stop. We have profile pictures (visible on your profile page) and you do have one of those set.

Pretty common to mistake the two

I know I've set a profile pic on the main website. But I still don't see it when i post comments or threads. I believe I can see it when I go to my homepage on the main site. But no pic at all on the app. Running on 3G.

Yes, what I mean is that the profile picture is not meant to be displayed next to posts. You need to set an avatar, which is another option in your userCP for that.

Where is that option located? I must be blind or looking in the wrong spot.

Are you trying to do this from a computer or from an app?

Welcome to Android Forums jawanda.

Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing the app and tried again? What kind of image are you trying to upload and have you tried doing this from your PC?

I don't think it is something that can be changed from the app... I think it's something that needs to be done from the website.

You can definitely change your avatar via Tapa (just checked), so I would assume the same would be true for the AF app

You may wish to try clearing data and cache if applicable from your main settings -> app management.

If it still fails, please confirm with our Tapatalk-based app, it's free -
