OK Chuck thanks for the reply, everything else works fine especially the important one, members log in works OK as do user group recognition.
So for now we can live with that, i may speak to the techs on the forum software to see if they have any code suggestions that may work.
I did try one of the codes put in another post i found here for vbulletin software (noticed that after i tried it) and juggled about a bit to get the path and i did get the avatar box showing but with a red cross in it, checked path and all OK so i am sure it could be done in the future. Did not think it would work but thought i would have a try
We are for info now using MyBB version 1.6
But apart from that the new version of PhotoPost is very impressive and i have noticed a big difference from the past version we used 5.62
