I decided I would use one of the avatars Mata had already made for my posts, and so first I d/led it to my computer. I then tried to upload the image to the forum, but it gave me an error. So right now I just threw it up on my computers web server, but if my computers ever in a reboot, or my IP changes, then I show a broken link. Oh well, not like I ever turn off my computer, but just lettin ya know.

Oooo ooo, SK, i figured it out. When I clicked on your link, I got this error.

QUOTE
We detected a hotlinking error. Hotlinking is when you link to images or NON html files on 100megsfree5.com from another host. Hotlinking is not allowed for our FREE Accounts. Hotlinking is allowed for our paid accounts. Your account can be upgraded in the user section when you have logged in.


Which basicly means, you can't link to a jpg off their webserver. If you want, I can put it up on my comp like I did mine, and you can link to it off there. Just drop me an IM if ya want to. (My sn is the same as my user name here).

Both of your pictures are showing up fine for me.

I've set as default that people shouldn't be able to upload files onto my server. Sorry to be mean but I need to keep as much space and bandwidth to my site as possible!

Linking to images on free hosting sites quite often produces errors, it's just one of those things that happens on the internet a lot!

Just a quick helper note.

If you are pointing your profile at an avatar via a URL, make sure you get the case correct, the system running the forum boards is case sensitive.

Ah yes, this site is hosted on a UNIX server so PIC.jpg is different from pic.jpg in this domain's eyes.

I haven't seen an option for ftp on this board, but as I've said before I've disabled uploading to it anyway so what you're trying to do probably wouldn't work. I think. I'm not sure what you're trying to do though...

Tripod accounts do allowing remote linking to images so try getting one of them smile.gif

Craziness, your avatar shows up fine for me now. It's pretty cool smile.gif

what i'm trying to do is simply link to the picture, but instead of it beign on tripod or such it's on my ftp server... and the board by some unknown reason doesn't accept addresses starting with "ftp://" smile.gif
i guess i'll just have to stick to these plain ones then ;P

As it says earlier in this thread and in the topic pinned at the top of the general chat forum YOU CAN'T UPLOAD AVATARS ONTO MY SERVER!!!! Read the other posts to find out why, I'm not going to type it all again.

You'll have to find some space on a website somewhere to host it for you. If you put a nice post in the introductions thread I'm sure someone will take pity and host a pic for you!
