Hello, i have a *simple* question to ask.

I have uploaded some avatars for my gallery on my forums, in the directory images/avatars/gallery, but for some reason, when I try to select an avatar from that gallery, the dropdown box for me to select from does not have any there: it's blank. Please help me. Thanks.

p.s. I uploaded some avatar packs (the *.gif's) in binary mode into the directory.

you need to make a directory to put the images in

ex:if you have avatars of cheese..and you want a gallery of cheese avatars...then in the images/avatars/gallery make a directory called cheese. and put the images in that directory so all your cheese avatars would be in the images/avatars/gallery/cheeses directory

I did that and no joy

I had the same problem..

I have pictures in both ..Avatars/Gallery
And in ..Avatars/Gallery/Cheese/

But they still dont appear for me..every other aspect of the Avatars work except for the Gallery being empty when I select it.

Anybody have some suggestions as to what is wrong?

Cheers!

:wink:

Since you put your avatar image files in - images/avatars/gallery -
Make sure you set the avatar gallery path to match under the General Administration

make sure you are uploading these to the root of your phpbb
and have you chmod the gallery/cheese directories to 777

also your admin path for the gallery should be images/avatars/gallery

Another thought, did you set your file permissions for the avatar gallery?

the faq section might be helpful
