Question Answered: Has the user customization featuer for our profiles been changed?

I am trying to update my profile and can't upload images anymore. Does someone know if this was changed in my absence?

Hey, peggios. Is your album a "Profile Album?" That is the only type of album that will work for uploading pictures. If not, edit the album and change it to a "Profile" one and try again.

If you still are not seeing the little icon that looks like this (which I don't know why you wouldn't):

Click the image to open in full size.

... then you can manually change the URL to fit the slots. Here's the story behind that which I posted for another member a while ago:

So what you need to do is find out the album number and picture number of the picture you want as a background, and put it into this URL form:

http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...e.php?albumid=[insert album id here]&pictureid=[insert picture id here]

(ignore the hyperlink - I can't get rid of it! The "..." stands for "pictur")

THAT is what the customization page accepts.

To find out the album and picture number, you will have to click "Edit" on the picture you want to use and the URL will then show those two numbers. The address of the picture should end like this:

albumid=[album number]&pictureid=[picture number]

So you can copy and paste that text from the address bar and it can go directly in the form mentioned above. Type the final http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...e.php?albumid=[insert album id here]&pictureid=[insert picture id here]" form in the bar for background image and you should be all set.
See if that works for you...

Well I haven't changed my profile in over a year so I can't really remember how to do but I do remember that you have to upload the pictures you are going to use to an album. Are you making sure that you are doing that?

Yes, I have an album full of pictures. The little picture icon is gone from my profile that you used to click on to get the pictures from the album to the profile. Now there is a message that says to enter the URL from your profile album, but when I do it give me an "invalid" message!

Maybe it's not a "profile album" try making it one if it isn't already.
