An avatar has to be an appropriately sized picture (I think the max is something like 120 x 140 pixels) held in a public hosting location (e.g. photobucket).

Are you just copying in the url alone out of the options on PB? If you're copying the one with url tags it won't work. If that's not the issue either then I'd suggest it's an issue with updating at the PB end - it happens sometimes. Just give it a day and try again, but which time it should have sorted out. Happens sometimes with regards to image size within posts too.

I copy the link that has the [IMG] around it? is that the one i can use to copy into the avatar part?
I read it on the link above and thats what I thought it meant

Other than that I'll leave it for a day and see it it fixes itself

For posting photos in thread, yep. For your avatar you don't want the img tags :)

The url - without any tags on either side.

It will look like this

Code: Select all

http://www.photobucket.com/blah.jpg
Rather than this

Code: Select all

[img]http://www.photobucket.com/blah.jpg[/img]
