Rank Image Help

Post by Matty_x »

Ive been trying to get my rank images to work by hosting the pics from imageshack but they show up as X's. I am not exactly sure how to host them with phpbb and I'm wondering if someone could give me a hand.

Thnx

what have you tried to get this done? and at one point did you encounter a problem?

or do you not know how to proceed at all and want to know how to do it?
Signatures are usually lame. Such as this one.

Make sure the image path is right in the rank settings.

If the image file is in forum/images/ranks you would have
images/ranks/picturename.gif and not
/images/ranks/picturename.gif

You need to upload them into the phpBB's folder. External images should work too, just make sure the url has 'http://' in front.
