Avatars

Post by Incito » August 30th, 2008, 10:12 am

OK, I had to work out a bug, but now you can choose an avatar from the local gallery. I put up over 100 images to choose from, and you still can upload your own via your computer or site link. Many cool avatar to use are at http://www.free-avatars.com
You can download them, and then upload them to your image sharing account. Remember not to hot-link the image. Check site rules these for details on hot-linking.

How do I link an avatar you say? It's easy! :D

Go to user control panel (button at the top).
Then to the left click Profile.
Then click edit avatar.
The in the link to off-site box put in [img]http://www.free-avatars.com/the_image_you_picked.gif[/img]
Click Submit.
Done.

--------------------------------
If you want gallery picture.
Go to user control panel (button at the top).
Then to the left click Profile.
Then click edit avatar.
Click Display Gallery (In the center below all other options).
Select one.
Click Submit.
Done

I've only ever had this avatar here and won't ever change it unless the file becomes corrupt or something :V:
