Display Avatar on Blog Comments and in FASO Control Panel

Generally speaking, an avatar is the embodiment of a person or idea. However, in the computer world, an avatar specifically refers to a character that represents an online user.

The avatar that appears at the top right of your FASO account control panel and that shows when you post a comment to a blog comes from one of 3 places:


Artist Quick Facts Page Image

Make sure your image is already uploaded to the Images folder
click Images (upper row)
click Add a New Non-Art Image
follow the prompts

  • from FASO account Control Panel
  • click About the Artist (left column)
  • click Edit Artist Quick Facts (top left, in blue)

  • for Photo Of Artist, click Choose an Image or click the down arrow to select by title
  • click Save Changes


About the Artist page, Picture 1 option

Make sure your image is already uploaded to the Images folder
click Images (upper row)
click Add a New Non-Art Image
follow the prompts

  • from FASO account Control Panel
  • click About the Artist (left column)
  • scroll down
  • for Picture 1 option, click Choose an Image or click the down arrow to select by title
  • click Save Changes


Important Distinctions

If you have a photo uploaded to both your About the Artist Page (using the Picture 1 drop down) and your Focal Point Page, the avatar will default to the Focal Point Page image.

If you add your Bio photo to the text box area in your About the Artist page, instead of using the Picture 1 field, the FASO software will not be able to pick up that photo as your avatar. A box with a color graphic will show instead of a picture of your choice.

The avatar will only display on a blog comment as long as you are using the same email address that is on your FASO account (your Admin Email address).

Avatar Not Showing on Blog Comments

If you are commenting on a blog post and your avatar is not showing along side your comment, it is most likely because you posted the comment from a different email address (an email address not associated to your avatar).

For FASO clients, you need to be commenting using your FASO account Admin Email address.
