I've tried to replace the lost avatar with a 240 x 240 pic a dozen times, but the "URL NOT VALID" rejection appears.

Help appreciated.

ok. I guess I'm not using a proper image location address.

I don't know how to find a photo, resize it, then post it here.

That's the problem. The antique software of the board doesn't recognize https: as a valid url. Use the same address with http: instead and it should work.

Meh. Still not doing it right.

If anyone can get me a usable URL of the first pic of

Aiysha Hart here, I'd be grateful. Wink

Sometimes you have to download an internet picture to your computer and then upload it to a photo hosting site that this site recognizes. I've used Imgur many times. You can resize photos on websites for that purpose, or the photo hosting sites like Imgur can do it too.

I tried both Stever’s and pilight’s URL’s for myself, and they were both rejected as invalid. So I conclude it’s a system problem that cropped up.

I'm thinkin' it's just cuz she's not important in basketball, and Reb's software knows at least that much.

This should get added to the avatar FAQ thread

It is already there

Quote:
If the URL of your image starts with https:// then it probably won't work as an avatar on this message board. Try removing the "s" so that it is just http:// at the start, and it should work.
