I'm definitely not new to WordPress and this plugin is very difficult to configure. First the description on the plugin site lists the configuration page in the wrong place. Says it should be under the users menu, but is really under setting. I've created a directory /avatars and gave it full write, plus added it on the setup page, but still can't upload any files. I get an error that the directory can't be found. I'm guessing that is now in a different place too.
Shouldn't take this long to figure out a plugin. Uninstalling
