    ~The bbpress application was available through my hosting package and so I installed from cpanel. Adding a theme was straightforward too after reading through this forum. However thereafter it got a bit weird.

    I was surprised that you cannot upload or link an avatar icon but I found the plugin to do that here. I spent hours trying to follow the seemingly simply directions to get it installed but to no avail. After unzipping it, it looks like this:

    <AVATAR-UPLOAD.0.8.3>

    <AVATAR-UPLOAD>

    bb-avatar-upload.php

    identicon.php

    readme.txt

    unsharpmask.php

    <ADDITIONAL-FILES>

    avatar-upload.php

    <AVATARS>

    default.png

    <MY-TEMPLATES>

    avatar.php

    With just seven files to handle, how can it be so complicated to find out where to put these files. The guides I have read seem to conflict.

    I found the same thing with the PM plugin, there is not much clear guidance as to where the files actually go.

    Has anyone got the avatar pic plugin working and can spare a few minutes to tell me where to put these, I would be grateful. My bbpress structure looks like this:

    <BBPRESS>

    <BB-ADMIN>

    <AVATARS>

    default.png

    <BB-INCLUDES>

    <BB-PLUGINS>

    bb-avatar-upload.php

    <BB-TEMPLATES>

    <TRIPRESS> (<—theme)

    <MY-LANGUAGES>

    <MY-PLUGINS>

    avatar-upload.php

    identicon.php

    unsharpmask.php

    Many thanks to anyone who can take a look at this and instantly can see what I have done wrong.
