How do I upload a profile pic?2021-05-08T01:00:24+02:00

First option (recommended)

BrodyOnline has full support for the Gravatar system. Gravatar is an image and public profile system that follows you from site to site appearing beside your name when you do things like comment or post. This is an external service and is supported by many websites around the world. Also on brodyOnline.com.

If you register on www.gravatar.com with the email you use on BrodyOnline, this image will automatically be transferred to BrodyOnline and work seamless with your student profile and the comments at the Cocktail Bar.

Second option (NOT recommended)

We also store profile pics locally, but there can be some issues synchronising the profile pic betweed the student profile and the message boards.

Go to your student dashboard and click ‘Settings’. At the bottom of the picture placeholder, click on the little camera. Now upload your photo.
