Cant post an avatar photo!

Postby glassstar1122 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 12:11 pm

Ive tried using a link from another page because it seems to be the only way to post your own pic, everything else says "disabled", but even the link just shows up as a torn page????? Why does it have to be so dang complicated??????? Help?

I'm not sure you can link a photo from Facebook as an avatar photo.

Here is the easiest way, imo:

• Create a free account on www.photobucket.com
• Upload the photo you wish to use as your avatar
• Copy the "DIRECT LINK" to the image (it will start with http://...)
• Paste that direct link in the Avatar Control Panel section of your profile, where it says "link to off-site avatar"

Hope this helps!

I am having a really hard time getting a photo to post... keeps saying that the URL to the avatar isn't valid... I set up the account with photobucket, figured out where to get the 'code' for the URL - says specifically that its supposed to be for forums etc.
Anyone able to help? Is it a file size thing?
I'd love to be able to use a photo as my avatar as opposed to one from the gallery...

Thanks!

Regardless of what Photobucket says about the link, for your avatar photo on this forum, you have to use the DIRECT link, not the URL link.

So, for your avatar photo, use the DIRECT link.

For inserting photos into a post, use the IMG link.

Hope that helps!

It looks quite large to me...?? Did you resize it in photobucket? If so, try saving as a copy instead of replacing. I've noticed that replacing it takes FOREVER for the file to be updated. Just save as a copy and add a "1" or something to the end of the name.
