Adding Avatars to Avatar Gallery?

Post by DLL_4ever » Sun Jan 22, 2006 4:37 pm

Im having a problem with this... i've uploaded about 13 avatars to the avatar gallery, but they dont seem to be showing up when you click on Show Gallery (in your profile)...

I've looked all over the admin control panel and cant seem to find anything about "installing" avatar photos in the avatar gallery or anything like that...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

He should have if he can see "show avatar gallerie" check if the properties of the file are set to 777 by using your FTP client.

I have exactly the same problem. Ive uploaded images to the images/avatar/gallery folder, have checked paths in configuration, and it is also enabled. However i get no options after clicking on "show gallery". This is probably sometiing really obvious but ive looked everywhere and cant find the solution.

have you mADE sure the avatars are inside subfolders inside the gallery folder, all the gallery avatars have to be uploaded into subfoldders, so imagine you have car avatars they would go for example in

/images/avatars/gallery/cars


see the cars subfolder, you need to follow this sort of format with all your gallery avatars

Thanks mate, thats sorted it out.

I uploaded to the images/avatar/gallery folder originally. Now that i've added new folders in the gallery folder and added images in there it works great.

Thanks for taking the time to help us out :-)

I have a question for that as well. Do the avatars have to be placed within the template folders or in the original phbbb directory? For example, I have the bsrf template. Do I go into that template and into it's avatars and add the proper folder to place my avatars? Or do I add them to the main directory for the phpbb?

The template has no avatar folder.
