With the conversion to vB
, some user's avatars did not migrate successfully. My apologies for that. If it helps, I was one of them.
However, it's a quick fix and I want to show you how to upload an avatar. Here we go.
1. Click on "USER CP
" in the main navigation bar.
2. When you arrive on that page, you should see a navigation menu on the LEFT side.
3. In this navigation menu on the left side, look for a link that says "Edit Avatar
." Click on it.
4. When you arrive on the page to edit your avatar, you are presented with TWO options to upload the image for you avatar. Select either one.
Option 1 - Enter the URL to the Image on Another Website
This option allows you to upload an image that is hosted anywhere on the internet. Keep in mind there is a SIZE restriction for avatars so if you get an error message that the file you're linking to exceeds the maximum size, then you may have to go to option 2.
Option 2 - Upload Image From Your Computer
This allows you to upload an image that is located on YOUR computer. The benefits of doing it this way is that you have more flexibility in editing the image first (making it pretty and making the file size adhere to the restrictions).
5. Click on "Save Changes".
6. Kick back and enjoy your new avatar.
