I have two questions that I think are related.
First, I've seen screenshots on other posts that shows several options on the [My Account] drop down that allows you to modify your account and change, change your password, and so forth. The only drop sown I says "Log Out.:
Second, I uploaded a picture when I initially set up my account but it doesn't (obviously) show up. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind of simple, for the first part.

When you are "online"... That's right under:

Click on "echambers" and your personal page will appear.

For me, in any Forum thread, when I'm logged in, I click and see:

If you mean "picture"... like my upside down pipe...

That's the avatar button.

I'm a little slow on the uptake...

Welcome to the club... many here are at least that slow.
And that be a fine avatar, laddy.

My claim -- nobody here knows less about pipes and pipe tobacco than I do.

When you are on the forums, if you click on my account you will only see 'Log Out'. To see the other available options go to the main page (pipesmagazine.com) and click on 'My Account'.

And therein lies the arcane nature of this ye olde Forum software package. The "My Account" menu acts one way from the main page and behaves in another fashion on hundreds and hundreds of pages within the site.
So, again: once you are "online", no matter the Topic page... just click on your screen name for access to those things you'd like to edit or add about yourself.

Because there are 2 profiles, one for the pipesmagazine.com and one for the forums of pipesmagazine.com. When you are on the main page clicking on my account will take you to your website profile so you can edit your details, add pictures to your album, etc. When you are on the forums you may click on your username and access to your forum profile.
