AVATARS

Post by roymanchester »

Hi there.

Have a new board and a couple of avatar queries..

1.Members are having difficulty putting their own avatar , their own being from another forum they are members of, on the site...seem to be prevented from doing this

2. also, they say avatar selection offered by board is limited and where can we get a bigger selection for them to choose from.
Thanks.

If you mean hotlinking to one on another board then that is frowned on as it is using the other boards bandwidth. They may have something in place to stop it.

If avatar selection is limited and you are the Admin then guess it is up to you to find some more. Have you tried the styles database here.

There are also many other places you can get them from.

Thanks Jim,

so if that is what he's doing, how can he get that avatar over?

checked the link for other choices...where else would I look for a selection?
Thanks

Try searching Google using the term avatar, that will get you a lot of hits.

Assuming that that is what he is doing then he may be able to copy the avatar and place it on his own webspace and link to it or use one of the photo hosting sites.

Have you tried Google "Avatars phpBB2"

First site I go to from Google has 100's of avatar packs.
