Alright, first off if there is already an older topic on this that I could not find please just point me in the right direction. I uploaded an image which is 100x133 and 26kb, which according to the rules is well within the max size allowed. It said it had worked fine, but still I see no image in the CP and no image with any of my posts, even ones that were made after the change. Does it just take a little while to start working? Does it require a certain amount of posts that I have not yet reached? Thanks for any help.

It's nothing to do with size or posts. I think there must be something screwy with the forum graphics. Have you tried any others?

No, I'll try that now, thanks.

Recheck your profile settings.. and ensure each desired feature is enabled. For an Avatar, ensure the external link is accurate, and parsed properly. Not all image types are applicable. A GIF or JPG image is preferred.

It's on my comp. I'll try grabbing one from the web.

EDIT: Think it works now.

Not an easy task to host an image from your own computer, unless it is always active.. and has a secure Firewall and specific permissions for access.
Best is to use a hosting site, and there are many free ones.. with restrictions.
www.uploadit.org/ has a free service, but has limited image types and sizes. Their 'premium' service is less than $10.00 USD per year, and you can UL any image type up to 2 Mb each. Very easy to link the site to Web pages or other communications.
