For some reason I am avatar challenged.

I understand that it wants a link to a web site.  Apparently it does not like Flickr. 

Is there a size requirement?

I'm just wondering if I am missing something very fundamental, or just dumber than my children think...

Does your image show what you saw, or how you felt about what you saw?

It works from Flickr, you just have to select share on Flickr and select only the address to the image in the long string it gives you.

Tah-dah!

Thanks!  I figured it was something fairly simple, but would probably have spent days figuring it out.  If ever...  :wink:

All sorted out? Good.
I'll just paste this in then for future reference  :)

ah thanks !
btw how do I  get a profile  pic to work ?
cheers


simple:
  -find an image you want to use
  -right click it
  -copy the url adress
  -then paste it in in your forum profile.

I don't know if the forum resizes images, so try to find a small image you want to use. :)   no worries! the forum resizes.
everone else; sorry for going all OT over here ;)

No. You can use other locations. As long as the image is accesible via url.
There's more to life than Flickr

Tumblr

Are you having trouble finding a link that works or just with the interface?

Im not 100% i think its just the interface, i mean its very simple to grab the link from my flickr, but when i paste it  and hit change profile my photo just comes up blank after it reloads.

i thought i could figure it out, but after a couple months thought i would ask.haha

Same boat here. The URL from Flickr just doesn't seem to work. Here's the one I am trying to use:

here's a link to try. it needs to be a direct link to an image, usually ending with ".jpg"

I'll put up a guide shortly

OK, that, with the additional step of removing the "s" from "https" that Satish suggested, worked. Thank you!
