Can't change my forum profile here on ElkBoards ?

Hello community ! Just a quick question about updating my forum profile avatar/signature , is it counted as a special permission or am I having some buggy experience ?

I don't see anything in the error log that would indicate an obvious bug.  There should not be any permission restrictions in place for that either.

Did you get an error when you hit save or is it just returning to the page with no updates.   I know the site is not running the same level of code for 2.0 as I am on my local, so I'll update it this weekend, in case its one of those things I've already fixed and forgotten about !

I'm actually hitting the ''Change Profile'' Button at the bottom and nothing is happening, not even a page refresh or any slight sign of saving

This should be fixed now, give it a try.

It was a new bug, kind of interesting really.  On the profile options form, there are some hidden input fields, mostly around the various avatar selections.  Anyway one of those had a type="url" which triggers the browser to validate that the entered value is a valid url.  But since this is an optional field, if left blank, the form simply fails to validate (via the browser) and never gets submitted.
