I am making my first forum using Drupal and have very little web development experience. My forum is very basic so far, mostly using core modules.
I tried adding a profile picture for my admin account (and also a picture for a test user account), but the image doesn't show anywhere. I only get the thumbnail that indicates a missing file or broken link. I have tried reloading the page, clearing the cache, and installing the profile2 module, but of course I still do not see images. I have since uninstalled profile2 just because I want to keep the forum as simple as possible until I learn more.
I'm working in version 7.39 and the site is hosted on my university account.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
