The custom avatar feature is not currently working. This is a result of the recent board changeover. There is no projected date as to when this feature will become available.

Marv, you're trying to link to a photo on your own computer's C: drive. You can't do that. You need to put the photo out on a server somewhere and then put a link to that.

Also, please don't do your testing in this forum. You should use the "TEST BOARD" forum for that purpose.

If you need help feel free to ask.

I see you have a ticker. You put a photo in the same way. You need the URL address for the photo itself. It will look something like this:

HTTP://ServerName/AccountName/PhotoID.jpg

In almost all cases your photo will be a jpeg photo so the address will end in .jpg

Notice it's the URL for the photo itself, not the web site where the photo is located. To get the URL of the photo, go to the web site which has your photo. Right click on your photo and then click on properties. One of the things you'll see is the address. That's what you want to copy.

Go to edit your signature, and paste the URL address there. Then select the entire address line from HTTP through jpg by clicking and dragging over it to turn the whole thing blue.

Then go to the format controls. You'll see a little yellow looking one with a small mountain scene. Click that. It will put the [img] and [/img] tags around your photo. It should then appear in your signature.

Sorry for some of the use of technical terms, but they're all pretty simple really. Just think of URL as being an internet address, jpg as a type of photo format, and [img] stands for image, which is what a photo is.

Post back if you need more help.

I have right clicked on photo but it doesn't show properties. I must be doing something wrong
