Avatars - cannot upload a picture

Hi there,

I have uploaded and activated the latest Avatar plugin. However when going into my user profile there is no where to upload an image. Also the blog avatar menu item does not appear under the "settings" menu.

So its not like the upload is not working (like I have seen in other forum threads) - rather its like the plugin isn't activated at all.

I have no other avatar plugins activated. Also its for a single site so version 3.5.3 was activated rather than the multi-user 3.5.6.

I am VERY new to this so any assistance would really help.

Thanks in advance
