Any idea what happened to my face? * I logged in today, and in place of my smarmy grin next to my postings, the text “User Avatar” has appeared instead. I can’t quite decide if I’m relieved to be rid of the picture, or sad that I might have to edit another picture down the jpg dimensions required by the forum software.
*Yes, I know that’s practically an invitation for abuse, but then again, I do frequent these boards almost every day; I must have a predilection for such treatment.
I have a question (maybe a really stupid question) but how to I get an avatar?
When I click on “user control panel” and there on “profile”, I can get to “edit avatar”, but don´t find a way to upload one. I see an option to enter a off-site link, but even when I do that, no picture is loaded.
I would like to add the picture from my computer directly, instead of somewhere online, but don´t know how to do that.
…it might be worth trying without the umlaut on the U, and getting rid of the full-stop after “lat”. It might be that server sees the first “.” and then tries to read “forum” as the file-type suffix rather than “jpg”.
The picture is clearly there on Dropbox and at 80x67px (EDIT: this number previously said 86x67. That was my error. Thanks to @pigfender in the post below for letting me know.) and only 2kb it is well within dimension limits.
It won’t even load as an image within this post, although other avatars will; and it won’t even show up in a [URL] container in this post.
I tried that. I open my original picture on my laptop. Saved it under a different name again with no “ü” and not space between the word and number (not just renamed it, I mean), uploaded that to dropbox and still nothing as far as I can see.
