An avitar is the image that's displayed along with all of your posts. In this case it's the picture of my appearing to the left.

If you want to upload your own avitar, do the following:

  • Click on the User Control Panel button in the upper right hand corner.
  • Under Options, click on Profile
  • Under Profile, select "Edit Avitar"
  • Click Browse and select a file that contains an image that a maximum of 90x90 pixels and no more that 6 KB
  • Click on Submit
  • If you're not happy with the result, repeat above until you are.

I decided it is about time I post an avatar but when I go to the edit avatar page, i don't see any place to "browse" for a picture. So how do I do this?

Thanks for pointing this out to me. The protection on the avatar upload directory was wrong. It's been fixed and you should now be able to upload an avatar (max 90x90 pixels).

Thanks, now I can browse for pictures, but still no success :cry: :cry: How do you get or find pictures that small 90x90 pixels? Is there a way to shrink pictures?

Hi Geoff,
Is there a way to view my avatar... and check that I was successful in uploading?

The avatar should show up next to your posts. I see don't see avatars next to either of your names.

If you want a custom avatar, you'll need to find a piece of software that allows you to reduce the size of the image to 90x90 pixels or less and it needs to be less than 6 KB.
