How do I change my password?

Why won't my profile image change?

There a couple reasons why your profile images may not change after upload:
  • Refresh for New Image
    After uploading a new image you must refresh your browser to view the new image.
  • Incorrect file type
    File must be in .jpg or .bmp format. Animated images are not compatible with the profile image tool.
  • Your Image Cache needs to be flushed
  • If you've tried all of the above and your new image is still not displaying your account may need a profile image flush. The procedure must be completed by a member of our customer support staff. To submit your request, please visit our help form.

How do I add images to comments and posts?

To post an image into a discussion thread, you must first save the image to an online photo album. Then go the image in the album, right-click and select copy link location. Then go the thread and use the insert image tool to paste in the link. You may also drag and drop the image in or use copy and paste.

If you continue to experience trouble, try asking someone on your friend's list or someone new who has a big friend's list (this is a good indicator that they're familiar with the Care2 system). Most users will be happy to assist you with some pointers. There are also a number of member-run help groups on Care2. Visit the main groups page and try searching for related groups and discussions.
