Since you do not have a general support area, I guess it's take your pick where to post this. When trying to upload an avatar to my forum profile, the following message displayed, and then the page went back to the forum index.

The avatar is a gif image, 48x48 pixels and 2.37kb in size.

Hmmm ... don't know why. If you give me a URL to your avatar, I'll put it in through the admin panel. (You can pm it to me if you don't want it public.)

BTW, I've "upgraded" your account to "contributor". No big thang, but only a couple of other users have that rating :wink:

Also tried loading from my site, no luck.

I'll see if using a link works; I'd prefer not to do it that way.

Edit: Clearly it does not.

My current avatar shows the "broken file" icon, so I figured I would upload an image from my machine.

The file I selected was about 73x77pixels and about 3kb.

I clicked on submit/upload and it showed an error page for a few seconds with the following information:

Code: Select all

If it can be uploaded manually, then my avatar can be found at: https://www.box.net/shared/9begvllfy5

This forum software is old and clunky. I've been meaning to upgrade, but haven't made the time.

Avatars only seem to work if hosted somewhere else. I'll host your picture for you.

I guess avatars are disabled I can't find page where you do this now (... the things you forget after 6yrs)
