    Hey there I'm new and I was wondering how do I upload an avatar? I went to USER CP and clicked on "avatar" in the menu..and it wouldn't let me upload anything..it said "no current avatar selected" or something like that..and there were no other options..is it disabled?

    My second question is..how do I put an image in my signature? I used the regular < IMG SRC =
    tags and it didn't work..I also tried the [ IMG ] tags and that didn't work either..can someone help me out with these two questions please?

    Hi Pittbullist,
    Just click on 'user cp' and click on 'edit avatar' on the left side.
    Then you should see a radio box for 'select custom avatar', check
    it and follow the instructions for there.

    Hit the 'Edit Signature' link and just click on the link icon and it will
    hyperlink a link for you. Click on the image icon and it will link the image
    for you.

    Here is a site to quickly resize any images you have that are too big:

    Hmm I don't see that anywhere..this is all it says:

    "Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post.
    (there's a box with a dot in it here) Do not use an avatar
    Note: if you have a custom avatar selecting this option will delete it."

    There are no other options or links there...:( I'm dumb

    Hmmm still doesn't work for me..this is all I get:

    "Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post.
    Do not use an avatar
    Note: if you have a custom avatar selecting this option will delete it."

    RE: Avitars

    Hello pitbulliest, if you find out how to get an avitar let me know, I would like to have one too, but I get the same message you do.

    Thanks,
    Beth :)

    I decided it would be a good idea to figure this out since there are so many questions about it. Look below the box you're seeing with the message you've described; there will be another section that gives you the option to choose a custom avatar. When you click on that line, a black dot will appear in that circle and the one in the "no avatar" circle above will disappear. You can then go to the bar that says "Browse." When you click on browse it will let you look in your computer's files for your graphic to upload. Just be sure you've got it sized small enough, as it won't resize it. I had to go back and resize mine several times before I got it right.

    Well, I checked out the whole system. Everything worked out using four temp users from scratch. If you did not receive a email please check our email or you will not be able to do a lot of things, like upload pics.

    We allow alvatars up to 80 x 80 pixels.

    On the top blue bar look for the User CP link (User Control Panel). Navigate from the left side once you get there. Make sure you are logged in.

    Hi Sandy, you wasn't activated. That is done by confirming by email.
    I went ahead and activated it so logoff and log back in and you will be able to change your avatar. :)
