Default Adding a Avatar image

Hi,
I have tried several times to add the avatar image to my name and all it shows is a box with a red X in it!
I think I have followed the instructions correctly.
I reduced the picture to not exceed 80X80 pixels, put it in my gallery at Pbase,
then intered it's url.-- All that shows is the box with the red X !
Sorry for posting this question, but I scanned "help" posts and didn't didn't find a answer.
Thanks, Bob

Problem is you are linking it to the webpage rather than to the actual JPG. I don't know if Pbase allows direct linking...this url should work:

http://mishappa.image.pbase.com/u35/...2979Custom.JPG



If the URL breaks after a certain amount of time, it could be that Pbase (on purpose) uses urls that change so you can't direct link...you should read Pbase Help files on this issue.
