Your avatar folders have to be in the images/avatars/gallery folder. Example: phpbb/images/avatars/gallery/simpsons. Any folders further down will not be available.

Have you done any MODs that would affect a user's profile? If the setting to enable avatar uploading is set to "yes" then try uploading a good copy of profile.php.

Template(s) used: custom and subBlack
Any and all MODs: upload mod (doesnt work either)
Do you use a port of phpBB: not sure
Version of phpBB: 2.0.8
Version of PHP: not sure
Which database server and version: not sure
Did someone install this for you/who: no, i did
Have you searched for your problem: on this forum, yes, noone has problems like i do
State the nature of your problem: I evidently dont knwo how to properly make the php board accect uploading avatars. none of my users cna upload avatars, the option is not there.
Do you have a test account for us: no

this links says i need to chmod 777 that folder to allow any1 to upload files to it...
yet the link doesnt go into specifics on how to chmod.

That completely depends on the implementation of chmod in your FTP client
Please read the manual of your FTP client for details
