    I thank you all, from the bottom of my 'oh so computer-know-nothing-heart'. As I said to another member, who tired to help me, I can run like support equipement (I'm an ICU nurse) but I cannot understand my computer.

    Question I need help too

    Hi
    Ive been trying to get an avatar, after I paste the code it says invalid file. I was using an avatar maker cause I just wanted something simple for right now like just my user name (the mrs). Then I tried to edit my signature and was able to get the code to "work" but it just shows the actual code and not the picture. So I tried it in the picture part and again invalid file. The one that "worked" was from my hot comments. Can anybody help me please?

    Trying To Change My Signature Pic

    All that appears is the link (as you can probably see below this post). AAAARRRGGG.

    I've done it before, I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong this time.

    1. Finding an Avatar: Use your own pic or one from your files, or Google a celeb, animal, whatever, click on Images, and copy the one you like to you files.

    2. Look on the far left hand side of the little FAD tool bar at the top of the page. Click on User CP. Scroll down until you see a link for Edit Avatar. Click on Browse. Your files will pop up, click on the image you want to use, then click Save. You can also use an image from photobucket or some other image hosting site by copying the image location URL, going to User CP, and pasting it where you see the URL box, then clicking Save.

    Just remember it has to be under 100 kb to work. That drove me mad for the longest time.

    How Do I Make My Signature Pic Larger?

    Ok, I'm having an airhead moment. I hope this is the right section to ask. How do I make my signature pic larger?

    If the one showing now is the actual size it will distort when you try to enlarge. But you would need to use a paint program (i.e. photoshop or the one that comes with windows) to make the image larger. Then save it and try going into your user cp and uploading the newly saved image. I hope that made sense.

    Go into your user cp (at top), on left click on edit signature - delete what is in signature box, put in new word, click insert signature, then save. Does that help?

    Size of the signature picture: The maximum size of your custom image is 600 by 128 pixels or 100.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

    Also, if the pic is in your album and your album is on private, it won't work. You have to put your album on public.

    How was the pic formated--gif, jpeg, etc. If it is a ping or bitmap, it won't work here, and you would have to reformat it on photoshop or run it through photobucket.

    Edit: The only album I saw was "Oh, Yeah" and both images are jpeg, but I'm leaving this up in case it helps someone else. Good luck.

    Be careful what you put up on your profile. You might be called for a "time-out".

    Didn't you have a death pic on your profile for over 2 years Gary??? Where in the rules does it say you can't have a death pic on your personal private profile... on a death board no less ... oh... guess Gary can't answer... he is banned. RIP "Lightenin' "

    2) Do not post any nudity in your avatar, signature, or profile picture; do not post pornography anywhere in the forum You are allowed to post artistic nudes that do not reveal the genitals or don't depict sexual penetration, as long as the image does not appear in your avatar, signature, or profile picture. You are not allowed to post any nudity, explicit gore, or image of sexual penetration in your avatar, signature, or profile picture. You are not allowed to link to any page with a pornographic image, even if the image only exists in advertising on that page.

    Answers to your question already exist in this thread.

Double click on it, you'll see it on the line of the browse box. Hit upload. I think you then hit save changes at the bottom. Hopefully that will do it.

    Try this: click on User CP, click on edit options, scroll down to Visible post elements, and see if you have ticked the Show avatar option.

    I am seeing that there is a tinypic link in your siggy. If you want the image to show up instead of the link, you would need to copy and paste the "IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards" (which would be a code with [IMG][/IMG] on either side of it) from tinypic into your signature for it to do so.

    Hope that helps

    I think I tried a BB code on my image link and it didn't work. Try this: Highlight and copy the image location URL. Go to the siggy page. Click on the little envelope on the little task bar above the inbox (like the one at the top of this one.) Paste the location URL into the box that pops up, click OK. See if that works.

    Ok. I searched your posts, found an old one, clicked on the advanced button, scrolled down, and the Show Signature was not ticked. I ticked it and your siggy showed on that old post. If you want your siggy to show on all your old posts, I think you can do it that way and they will show.

    Hi everyone. New here and having trouble with my avatar. I've tried both uploading from my computer and using a Flickr to host it and both times it says 'failed to upload' is there any way to fix this? I resized the avatar to 200x200 and it's only 5kb so under the 200kb limit. I even tried resizing again to 180x180 and it still doesn't work.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Just had a thought after typing this all out, am I not allowed to upload an avatar for a certain length of time as a newbie?

    Thanks!
