When I go into the "User CP" option (above) I can set up a picture and save changes but it doesn't show when I make a post.

Am I missing out an essential step or does it take a while to kick in?

EDIT: Now working because it is Avatar that shows on posts not Profile Picture...

it shows in this thread.

i think the forum software chaches the various threads and does not regenerate them completly each time. thats why your sig maybe doesnt show immediately in every post.

I cant see it, though you might be setting the wrong picture. There is a profile picture and an avatar, at least I think thats what they are called. You may have set the wrong one.

I have set my profile picture and signature. Signature is now showing but picture isn't.

Should I be setting avatar instead?

EDIT: Yes the Avatar is the Answer! Not sure when profile picture is relevant...
