    yo Pont! I got a ?

    i can't get a custom avatar pic under my name. when i try to do this i get someth'n like "this is too large". However my pic is less than 80X80. just wondering if something was wrong w/that part of the profile. i checked my link a couple of times. i'll go ahead and check it again though.

    btw excellent job here man. it is much appreciated by us all.
    thanks!!!

    I think there is a file size limit as well as a resolution limit. maybe try a jpg?

    Hmmm...post the URL here (or send me a PM) and I'll check it out! I believe there's a filesize restriction, but I don't know if it applies to remotely linked avatars (I hope it does, though).
    Anyway, I can't say what the problem is before I've had a look at the image...

    Weird...try this...
    Go to this page...this is a very simple image testing thingy, using the same function as the forum system does to check the image's "properties"...
    http://www.conceptart.org/imagetest.php

    See that it says 120x120 pixels? That's Fortunecity's own image...copy the image link from that page, open up a new browser window, and paste this link into the address bar...hit enter. You should now see a Fortunecity image (at least that's what happened to me).
    So, while Fortunecity in a way allows hotlinking, when you check the images stored on their servers, it links to another image (the Fortunecity "logo"), which is 120x120 pixels big.
    I recommend that you put that avatar up on another host...I could probably enter that URL manually into the database, but that means you'll probably run into problems when you try to update your profile next time (you'll have to enter a new URL for the avatar).

    Hope I made some sense...if not: MOVE YOUR AVATAR TO ANOTHER HOST!!!!

    Yeah, I think it's kinda weird - it's possible to hotlink (put it somewhere and link it in from another site) an image at Fortunecities...but PHP can't recognize it...they've obviously done something to stop hotlinking, but they've failed with stopping the real hotlink...:rant: :hmm:

    Screw Fortunecities! Hahahaha...always wanted to say that
