Setting up Avatars (The picture under your name)

Postby Mort » Mon Dec 05, 2005 9:21 am

For those that don't know, Avatars are the pictures that appear under your name on all your posts.

At the moment, you can't upload an avatar to your profile on the server.

However, if you have a web space somewhere, just upload it there and use the option to link to an external URL. If you don't have any webspace, just email to me and I'll host it for you.

Settings on Avatar images are:

Height <= 150
Width <= 200
Size <= 50Kb

If this is too restrictive, I can increase it without too many problems.

I was trying to get the upload working last night with no joy... but I just tried it this morning and now it seems to be working! Must be one of those strange IIS things...

Anywayz, if you have a chance, go into your profile and try uploading an avatar graphic to use in the forum. Just make sure it meets the size restrictions though.

Let me know if you have any problems. I may need to tweak the security down a bit now that it is working, but that's one more issue hopefully out of the way.
