Go to Components > JoomDIY > Options > Member view tab.

There are 2 important options here. User link is the type of page your users will go to when clicking on a JoomDIY author.

It can either be JoomDIY author page OR EasySocial Profile page. Avatar manager takes two values: "EasySocial" or "Joomla". If "Joomla" is selected, then JoomDIY expects "Profile Picture" plugin to be installed and enabled.
