What is an Avatar?
An avatar is a small picture that is displayed under the user's name. This allows them to show their humor or to represent themselves.
How to put an Avatar?
Click on "Profile" in the link bar on top of the forum page
Then click on the "Avatar" link above the frame, on the right hand side of the page
1- It the avatar is on your PC : you click on "Browse" (the button's language depends of your browser's language) to look for the picture on your hard drive, then submit.
CAUTION : The picture must not exceed 32 KB in weight, and if the admin didn't modify the max dimensions, it must not exceed 150*200 pixels in size. Only .jpg, .gif and .png format are accepted.
STEP 1: CLICK PROFILE
STEP 2: CLICK AVATAR
STEP 3: CLICK BROWSE
STEP 4: OPEN YOUR FOLDER AND CLICK THE SELECTED PICTURE
STEP 5: CLICK SAVE
2- You can upload an avatar to the server from an URL. In this case, the avatar is directly hosted on the board's server, and the size and weight limits are still applied. Advised if you take an avatar from a sel-service avatar website where direct-linking is not allowed.
3- You can link an avatar from another site by putting the URL. In his way, the size and weight limits are no longer applied and nothing will prevent your members to use large avatars since they stay hosted on the website where they come from. Advised if you host your avatars yourself on Servimg, photobucket, imageshack, etc. or if your avatar is in .png format with transparency.
4- Also you can choose an avatar from the gallery, if you want.
