Post by -Stephanie- » Sun Nov 05, 2006 1:03 am

Ugh ok you have no idea how incredibly stupid I feel having to do this, but would somebody please explain to me the process of getting an avatar on my profile here? I am having the worst trouble trying to figure this out... I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if I'm just plain dumb. Somebody please help!!! lol

hey! i also had problems with that! hey, are you sure you're putting the url in the 2nd option? i always put it in the first.. but it did worked in the second.. i'll give you images for you to understand better^^

Image

so, you already have your pic in photobucket, right? so, what you have to do is to copy the url.. do you follow me? do you see what i remarked in the pic? that's what you have to copy^^

Image

then, you go to 'profile' and you paste the url in the second place, as shown in the pic


i hope i was of any help^^

Well, i usually upload my pics on Imageshacks , when you get to the site you see this:

Image

You click on the Examinar button (i got the spanish version, in the english version it will be named other way) and you choose the image you want to upload. Once you got it, click on the Host It button and after some seconds (it depends on the image size) it will show us this:

Image

The url we need to use here is the one i've put inside the red box.

umm.. you couldn't upload it? where are you hosting your image?

i'll explain this once again,okay?^^

first, you have to make an account on http://www.photobucket.com, and don't worry, it's easy and free!^^

then, you have to upload the pic, like i'll show you now

Image

After you click in 'examinar' or 'browse'[if you have the english version, it's 'browse', if you have the spanish version, it's 'xaminar'] you pick the image you want for your avatar

Image

like that, you put 'abrir' or 'open' and then you press the 'upload' botton, okay?

then, you go where you have the 3 codes, one says Url, and that's what you have to copy as shown in the pic below

Image

after you copy that code, you go to your profile, and you paste that url code in the second slot, like this:

Image

and then you press 'submit' and that should be it.. i hope i could help you^^

Okay, I can't change my avatar, which is very strange, because I've always been able to do it before. When I press submit, it says that it worked, but then at the top of the page, above the Lexicon banner, it says:

Warning: copy(./images/avatars/12920960994552cd6c19dae.gif): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/tjoffs/www/twilightlexicon.com/forum/includes/usercp_avatar.php on line 286

It doesn't let my avatar show up, so I'm guessing that it has something to do with all those Warning things. Does anyone know what it means, and how I can fix it?

Are you uploading your avatar straight from your computer? If you are, that's the reason why you are getting these errors. I too used to be able to upload from my computer, but now it's nearly impossible to do so since so many people are on the Lexicon. The only other way is to host your avatar on another site like photobucket, tinypic, or imageshack. There are multiple threads with instructions on how to use those sites, including this one (see above). I'll just give you some links to other threads so you can choose what works for you:

Hope this helps.

Note: Updated instructions for www.tinypic.com

If it is on your computer, make sure that the avatar size is no bigger than 200 by 200 pixels and no bigger than 9kB. Then go to www.tinypic.com.
Image

On the right, you will see
Image

Click on "Browse...". A window will pop up where you choose the file you want to upload. Double click on the picture you want for the avatar OR click on your picture and then click "Open.
Image

The address to your picture should be appear in the "File:" field.
Image

Click on "Upload Now" and you will get something like this.
Image

Copy the link from the field that says "Direct Link for Layouts".

Now go to the Lexicon. Go to the Profile section. Scroll all the way down to the Avatar Control Panel. Go to where is says "Link to off-site Avatar:" Paste your link to that field. Then press "Submit". This portion of the instructions is also explained by Gaby09 above with pictures.
