Jan 2012 How to add an Avatar to your profile
« on: January 07, 2012, 05:00:36 PM »
Before you start please note,

1) If you are going to use a picture as an avatar the best option is to use something 100 pixels by 100 pixels. If you use a rectangle shape picture it may look out of shape when you add it.

2) If you are already a member with an avatar uploaded using the old method and you change you avatar you wont be able to add your old avatar again unless you saved it and use this new method.


To add your avatar to Ouch Too you need to have the picture you want to use uploaded somewhere on the internet. If you want to use the Coppermine Gallery I added, for further instructions on how to upload a picture please click this link

Once you have the picture up loaded and have copied the location you need to follow these steps:

Look near the top of the page where it says Profile and click on that. Next put your mouse pointer over Modify Profile and More options appear. Click on Forum Profile and you should see a page similar to the one in the second picture below.
Choose Specify avatar by URL and then add the location of the picture to the long box on the right (second green arrow).
Finally click Change Profile on the bottom right.
