I have done everything I can think of to upload a new avatar of my Fiero. I even joined a site that would host my photo (which I scaled down to less than the reccomended size of 70x70). I closed my browser and reopened it. Still nothing. Why is this so difficult? I also wondered if you can send photos in a pm or do they, too, have to be hosted by another website? Thanks!

As a footnote, I think the gallery is down as well. I can't seem to view any photos once I click on the link.

Are you using a direct link when linking to your avatar and not a img tagged link? It should be the http: link you use just like what appears in the address bar at the top of your page showing you what page you on out there in the world wide web.

Other than that I can't imagine why it's not working. I use photobucket to host my pictures since it's free and I haven't had any problems I can remember except making sure you don't delete old pictures otherwise it throws all the linked addresses of pictures uploaded after that one off, meaning any picture after that one that you may have linked to in a thread will become a dead link. You jus have to leave whatever pictures you upload there and make sure you asign them to whatever album you want them in before linking to them.

Oh great! I already deleted the avatar that I was using prior to trying to upload my new one. So now what ? This seems to me like it's more difficult than it should be. I am trying to put the link in my profile for my avatar but nothing happens when I do.

Here is the link: http://carphotos4.cardomain...199758_large.jpg?v=1

Any suggestions?

Editing the Avatar is a little bit tricky. You have to return to the Forum Summary page after each step for any change made to be effective. If you instead return to the edit page, all changes are lost.

Nope. Nothing. Tried every trick and no luck. Totally ridiculous.

I think that if you go back into your PFF Profile, and put this URL (above) into the Avatar field, it will work.

Just wanted to see if the site you uploaded the pic to allows off sight linking.

I noticed that the gallery link is not functioning either. Could this have something to do with my issue?

IMSA GT I don't think the problem is the link I was using, but just for sh*ts and giggles I tried yours anyway. Nothing. I have spent WAYYYY too long trying to get this stupid thing to load and I think I'm going to give up. Waste of time that shouldn't be this difficult. Thanks for your efforts, though!

When I first joined the site, it took a LONG time for my avatar to show up. I don't know if you are having the same issue. Just post my link into your avatar line and let it sit for a few hours. It worked instantly for me and I even changed my original avatar to a new photo so I know there is no issue with the forum. Just give it some time to show up.

Edit to add.......I just tried your link for about 10 minutes and nothing showed up. I then changed my avatar again and it instantly changed so I think there is something wrong with Cardomain's linking.

Alright. I used the link you provided and I guess I'll let it sit on the burner and see if it boils. Thanks for your help.

I feel your pain.
I would have changed mine long ago, but the work and frustration involved just isn't worth it to me.
Good luck, I know it CAN be done, if you keep trying.
