  • Avatar Tutorial

    In case you're having trouble loading a profile picture or Avatar, here's a helpful tutorial. Avatar's and profile pictures ARE enabled. How to upload them is not obvious if you're not a vBulletin wizard. It took me awhile to figure it out. Here's what you do:

    1. When you're logged in, click on Settings in the upper R corner of the forum window.

    2. Then under My Settings (lower L sidebar) click on Edit Profile Picture or Edit Avatar (next option down)

    3. A window will appear (lower center) from which you can upload an image (100px max) or link to a URL.

    That only allows you to set a profile pic (which could include an avatar instead) that will show up if someone clicks on your profile, but it doesn't show up in posts.

    This link apparently controls avatars that will show up in posts http://www.backcountrytalk.earnyourt...?do=editavatar but it doesn't seem as if they are currently enabled?

        Avatars figured out. The key is to click on My Settings, upper R when you're logged in. Then from the My Settings sidebar (L side of profile page), click on the Edit Avatar link. Upload your Avatar.

          I'm still not seeing it from here, Craig. There is Settings on the upper right (no My Settings). And in the My Settings menu on the lower left, there is no link to Edit Avatar, just Edit Profile Picture followed by Edit Signature.

            Aaaahaaaa! Found it! You should be able to upload your own Avatar now. Let me know if you still cannot.

              There it is! I still get a message that Upload of the file failed but it seems to have worked. Same thing happened when I uploaded a profile pic.

                    Wow, the new software took years off mine!

                    I'm liking this place already.

                            That worked. Appears to be retroactive as well.

                            Thx for the instructions.
