Default Answered: WI Avatar Problem

Okay, I like to change my avatar a lot, and I've been having some troubles changing it lately. Here's what I used to do-I'd upload it to my WI album, then click on the picture, get the url, then put that in at the url spot under custom avatarsin the change your avatar section. But the last couple of times it hasn't worked. I get a vBulletin Message saying this:

This GIF image has the incorrect file extension.

The picture I was using wasn't even a GIF, so I changed it to one, and it said the same thing only with a PNG or some other file type name.

But if I hit the browse button and upload that same pic from my computer, it works fine. But my parents don't want me keeping a whole bunch of pics on the computer, taking up space, so if I could get it to work through the WI album, I could delete them off of my computer.

I don't know if there's a solution to this, but I'd really appreciate any thoughts or advice that might help, or any important thing I missed. Thanks!

Try uploading the link to tinypic.com (safe & easy), then paste THAT link there.
Sorry.. though.. I don't know anything else.

That does work, but that's not what I was looking for. I don't know if you read the whole question, but my parents don't want me taking up space on the computer, they want me to delete pictures after uploading them. I could delete the pictures after uploading them like my parents want if I could get the album-url thing to work instead of uploading it from my computer.

Sorry if this is a problem with no answer, I can't figure it out.

Do you mean that the URL thing isn't working, or is it something else? I'm not sure II'm just not reading it right but...

Default Re: WI Avatar Problem

Okay, let me show you more in detail what's going on:

Here's my current avatar in my album. (I have it uploaded from my computer, not through the URL.) I copied the picture URL in the red circle.

Click the image to open in full size.

Then, I went to the Edit Avatar section. I put the copied URL in the space. Notice at the end of the address it's a .jpg.

Click the image to open in full size.

When I click the Save Changes button, I get this message:

Click the image to open in full size.

Here it says GIF. I tried changing it to GIF, but when I try to upload it through the URL, it says the same message as above with .JPG instead.

Any picture will work if I upload it by clicking Browse... and getting it from my computer, but I am trying to figure out how to make the URL option work.

Hope that helps clear up my problem.

Is this happening with all of your images? If not, try uploading the image again in your album and trying again. Or, when you save it to your computer to put it in your album, check what file type it's saving as and then try saving it as a different file type such as JPG or BMP. Hope this helps

Maybe the image is just to big. You should try making it smaller.

Right click on it, the 9th one down says "Copy Image Location" click that, then when entering it hit Ctril+v and it should show up.

If not, you might need the image resized, Cocoabean has an amazing resizing shop you might want to check out. Good luck!
I tried it like that, but it said the same thing as usual.

I tried re-uploading an avatar under four different file types, GIF, PNG, JPG and BMP. None of them worked.

I tried resizing the image to 50x50, which is really tiny, but it still didn't work.

I can just not figure this out, and I know I'm being really annoying since my problem appears to be unsolvable, so sorry! But thanks for the continuous help, guys!

Any more ideas?

Craftyreader has the only solution that will work, as far as I can see.

I just tried it, but I can't load an avatar from my profile albums either. I think it has to be either from another website (not WI) or else your own computer. No pathway for within WI.

Tinypic, photobucket, flickr, all provide free photo-hosting that you can use for this purpose.

Actually, I just got it to work. I got an "Invalid file" message, but the avatar is there, from my profile album. I don't know why it worked. I just C/P'ed the URL....


I got it to work for three different pictures on my profile album. Make sure the pictures are small enough. Also, when pasting in the Picture URL, make sure that you don't have the http//www. twice.
