    Use of Avatars

    Brian,



    Excuse my ignorance, but can these be photo's or bits of photo's saved as Jpegs?



    I've tried to use a Jpeg photo which is small enough, but it doesnt show up?
    Regards, Bob

    Kiky,

    When you add information to your profile, you can choose an 'Avatar'. This is the little picture you see alonside our name when viewing the posts.



    What I was trying to do, was load a small Koi picture, but I was unable to. Perhaps Brian will explain the reasoning behind why 'we' cant do this, when he sees these posts.
    Regards, Bob

    Bob,

    You can! If I can do it, see left, then anyone can.

    Ok, Mark resized my pic for me ages ago, then I put it in my gallery at www.koipix.com - then right click on it, then properties, then copy the info. re. the address, or URL I believe.

    In profiles on here, paste that info in the avatar section where it asks you for 'off site' (or similar) details, 3rd window down I think.

    Hey presto!

    As I say, if I can sort that, anyone can. 8)

    possibility to upload avatars?

    As I remember, in the profile you are supposed to be able to upload the avatar; as well as, link to a file on the net. Linking seems to work fine. Uploading does not seem to work. That is sad. :cry:

    Seems to be that the folder on the server needs permissions changed.
