It means that you have to have an avatar located elsewhere, such as your personal web page. You would then link that information by supplying the the URL of the picture such as http:// www . myurl.pic.jpg (no spaces)

I might sound like I just rolled out of the jungle.... but.... ops:
does that translate to:

1) Once I have posted my pic on my webpage, I than attach it in the "Profile" setting?

2) To find the URL address of the pic, its probably in under "properties" right?

3) Should I want to post any pics in the forum. Do I use the same methods?


Thank you ohenry. I appreciate it.

Not having an avatar, I can't say for sure, but that sounds right.

As for posting pictures in a post....

Look above the area where you type your message. There is a line that has several buttons:
B I U Quote Code List List= Img URL

If you type in a link to your picture, and then hilight it and click the button that is labled "Img" it will add the proper codes around the text so that the image will appear in the post. If you want to make sure you did it right, use the "Preview" button next to "Submit" to see if the image appears correctly. I always test my posts with pictures before I submit them, just in case I make a mistake.

Depends on how you reduced it, I guess. What are the parameters? Mine is 47X80 pixels at 72 ppi, 0.653X1.111 inches
