What's the current advice on uploading or otherwise posting profile pictures? I succeeded in deleting my old one but have failed to upload new .jpg and .png avatars.

I've tried multiple times to upload an avatar image both uploading a file and also using a link. But the picture never shows up. What gives?

No clue, I'm still waiting for a reply from my previous post. Every time I upload an image and save, nothing happens.

I can usually get them attached.

 

The secret is I don't want my email address on the open forum so, if you want me to try, drop me a PM and I'll let you know where to send the file.

What an unnecessarily convoluted process. This is the only forum I've ever seen that doesn't let you simply upload an avatar image as it should. That being said I'll quit my whining and send you a PM.

It used to work fine as Mauserme has not had to correct everyone with an avatar. The board software is a bit dated and many things don't work as well as they used to. Hopefully the upgraded version of the board when it arrives will resolve many issues.

If it requires an admin to do it then I'll just wait for the new site upgrade. Not that important to me to inconvenience someone else by having them do it.

Just an FYI, we've been told for years that the forum software will be upgraded "soon."

So, um.... yeah... lol

I found that I had to link my avatar to a hosting site to get my picture to show up.  For what it's worth, I used the following free hosting website:

 

http://picr.de/

 

Note: This is a German site and the page is all in German.  I do not speak German but it is pretty straightforward to navigate.  Plus there is no account needed.  Just upload and go.  Link a photo, upload and you get a link.  Put that link into the avatar section that asks for a web address and you're set.  Good luck!
