For some reason, I can no longer post pictures in my signature.  When I am in my "account settings" the pictures show as posted, but when I go to a forum and look at my posts no pictures are displayed.

All I can post is words such as "Currently Reading..."

Is there some feature or button that I have inadvertantly disabled or something?

 

ETA: I also tried eliminating the "Currently Reading..." message because sometimes writing pushes pictures off the screen. It didn't work either.

LOL. That always happens to me! I remember the answer or figure it out right after I ask.

Well, I am not exactly sure, myself.

I uploaded the three pictures of the little brown monster (Domo) and they didn't show up when I looked at my forum messages.

So I went back to my account settings, clicked in the signature area and back spaced a bit which pulled the photos into view.

I could of sworn I did that last week. Anyway, it worked today.

Hey, if you're here actively conversing on forums and trading books, you're not computer inept. Give yourself some credit :)

Avatar? Avatar? Do you mean the little picture by one's name?

Here's what I do. I surf the Internet, find a picture I like looks small enough to be accepted into the PBS system, right click and select "save picture as" to store it on my computer. Then I return to PBS, go into my account settings, hit browse, find the picture in my system and upload it. With any luck it will be the right size and it will successfully upload.

It's low tech version, but that's how I do it.

Well, thanks, Laura, - I may be able to do that.  Low tech is the only tech I understand!  LOL!!  I've been admiring your avatars and you change them frequently which I like as well.  I'll have to go looking - any suggestions as to where to look?  See - I am really needy! ;D

To add an avatar to your public profile (which will appear on your forum posts also):

  • Go to your Account Settings
    • choose Settings from the dropdown menu under My Account in the toolbar at the top of the site.
    • Scroll down to the Public Profile section (or click the link at the top of the page to go there directly)
  • Click " to the right of the "Change Icon" space. This will let you browse your hard drive to find the picture you want to upload.
    • Make sure your picture is a valid file type (gif, jpg, png), and is smaller than the maximum filesize (30kb), and smaller than the maximum allowable dimensions (75px x 75px).

 This will also work in the Forum Settings to add graphics to your forum sig.

Isnt he, though? His name is Domo Kun and he's big in Japan. Watch out Hello Kitty!
