Guide to Avatars


Setting and Editing your Avatar

An Avatar is a graphical representation of the user. In 4to12maths.com we have a range of images that a user can select from. This image then represents you on thr site. The Avatar, along with your name, will be on every page when you are logged in.

Setting an Avatar

When you first join and set your Password and Secret Word you will set your Avatar at the same timer. You have received an email similar to this one below. If you have done so already, please read it and follow the instructions as to how to login. See arrow below indicating link to click on.


Clicking on this link will open this Reset Password page that tells you that this is a one-time link. Click on Log In to go to your Profile page.

This is your Edit Profile page. On this page you can do the following:

  • Select your Avatar. When you log in for the first time there is no Avatar selected. You need to select from the list of Avatars available and click on the image. A red border will highlight the selected Avatar. This image will follow you throughout the site.

  • Change your email address.

  • Enter and confirm your password. You and your children will use this every time you log in.

  • Change your secret word. You may wish to change this to another word but be careful who knows this word as they may be able to access your account.

When you have completed these 4 simple steps click on the Save button and you will be shown the saved version of this page.
