Re: Avatar -not the film....


Hi Ian,

Doesn't seem to work for me. I'm hosting with Flickr and I've tried all three codes they provide and I get this message when I post into the 'My Avatar' field;

pers_icon: Must not contain spaces
pers_icon: Invalid avatar address
pers_icon: Maximum valid length is 150

or some variation of it.

Cheers

Why is Flickr so hard to share pictures , its like they don't want anyone to post elsewhere, ask in the help forums Steve

Steve, make sure that BBCode is ticked in the post box on this forum.
Open the image in Flickr, click the share icon (curved arrow) and from the pop-up box click on BBCode. Copy the code and paste it directly into the message box in the forum new post box.
Your image should appear.

Thanks for viewing, Mike

I always welcome critique of my images but prefer to try recommended edits myself.

Re: Avatar -not the film....


No, you are correct it won't load into the avatar box using the method I described.
Here's a work around for you. Send me the avatar image and I'll upload it to one of my sites and give you a link that you can then use.
