Hi Bart,

I deleted my existing avatar and can't find the location to upload my new one. Do they have to be hosted off-site these days? I tried this, but it doesn't seem to keep the link for some reason.

Thanks,

Phil.

Hi Phil,

They do indeed need to be linked from off-site. Can you send me the link you're trying to use?

Cheers,

Bart.

Why does this always happen to me! It looks like it's working now :-) I had the permissions on the graphic file set correctly, but not the directory it was in - I'm learning the hard way about these things. Anyway, I can see my shiny new avatar beside my messages now :-)

You're not quite there yet Phil :(

The URL to the image is still giving me a 403 forbidden error

This is weird in the extreme - I could see my avatar when I posted my last message and now it has gone again!

I'm using FileZilla FTP to set permissions (755 for the directory and 644 for the avatar1.gif) That seems to work ok with other image files in other directories!

Check out ochra.110mb.com for similar settings that I know others can see.

Your host may not allow direct-linking of images. It's not un-common for cheap or free hosting to place such restrictions.

I think most members use services like flicker for hosting their avatars.

I use Photobucket! Its free! Flickr requires a yahoo email account i think and i already have 2!

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started

Bart - I think you're right. I set up a flickr account and uploaded it there and it seems to be working... touch wood! Thanks for your help.

I can see it perfectly so it looks like you have it sorted :)
