ok, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to display the avatar in the Biographical Info section after the post. I got the bio info to show up, where do I upload the Author's avatar? Do I need a plug in? If so, which one works with Genesis?
First off, I would check your Discussion settings & see if "Show Avatars" is checked.
The user image that gets loaded, by default, is a Gravatar. WordPress uses this service & the actual image is tied to the user's email address. Users can setup a free account with Gravatar using the email address that's in WordPress. That being said, there is a nice plugin that lets you override this & upload your own images.

Thanks ramseyp, I finally installed Simple Local Avatars and made it work that way. Is it me or is it so 1999 to not let users upload their own avatar locally?
