Ok. So the image upload don’t seem to work. The message says.

“The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your image or avatar cannot be saved”

Did anything work?  I tried to upload an avatar image and received the same error message.  When I used a URL for the avatar, I received confirmation that my profile was updated, but my avatar does not appear on any of my posts.

Make sure you have selected the ‘use URL for avatar’ tick box option then put the URL in, ensuring you have the full address starting with Http and ending with .jpg and then it should work

Not yet Mike. That said I am a complete luddite. I'll try again soon.

Thanks, Peter.  I tried using the Flickr link, which didn't work because it didn't end in jpg.  I disassembled the URL for the BBCode option and this appears to work.
