Selecting Avatars

I have uploaded an avatar pack into this directory: /public_html/forum/images/avatars/

The folder of images (avatars) is here: /public_html/forum/images/avatars/HaloAvatarPack2.0/

I can see the avatars in the SHOW GALLERY portion of my profile but after I select the avatar I want, it doesn't show up in my posts.

Any idea on what I did wrong?

After selecting the avatar I want to use, I click "select avatar". The avatar shows up in my profile at the bottom. I go to one of my posts in my forum and I have nothing for an avatar.

Perhaps I need to copy the avatar folder to another location also?

We do have a 6 hour bump limit! This is not instant messaging.

A link to your board would prove useful.

You have allowed gallery avatars in your board config?
His board is in his WWW tag I am assuming. His template seems to be OK.

I would think so or it would not have been an option in his profile.

I have a "guest" account someone could use to check it out.

I wasnt so sure if an admin might not bypass those things... but he could have added it to his profile and then disabled it in config afterward or something.

I am not seeing any avatar in his Profile either.

Now the avatars I uploaded are shown as X's in the avatar list in the avatar gallery.

Things keep getting weirder and weirder!

Please check that the path in your configuration is images/avatars/gallery and not /images/avatars/gallery

This is my avatar storage path:

images/avatars

This is my avatar gallery path:

images/avatars/gallery

Well I can see that the images are there. Can I suggest an empty index.html file in that directory so that it can not be accessed.

Back in a moment.

Please confirm that you have permissions on the directory images/avatars set to 777

There is an error in your file viewtopic_body.tpl
<!-- BEGIN postrow -->
<tr>
<td width="160" align="left" valign="top" class="{postrow.ROW_CLASS}">
<p align="center"><span class="name"><a name="{postrow.U_POST_ID}"></a><b>{postrow.POSTER_NAME}</b></span><br /><span class="postdetails">{postrow.POSTER_RANK}<br />{postrow.RANK_IMAGE}{postrow.POSTER_AVATAR}<br /><br />{postrow.POSTER_JOINED}<br />{postrow.POSTER_POSTS}<br />{postrow.POSTER_FROM}<br />{postrow.POSTER_MEDAL_COUNT}<br /><!-- BEGIN medal -->

<!-- END medal_row -->


That in red that is a switch should be on it's own line.

I have the permissions set to 777. Are you able to see the images in the avatar gallery? I cannot. They show up as the filenames with a red X.

I have accessed them directly via the url of the images directory hence the need to put an empty index.html file in there.

Make the change shown above to the file viewtopic_body.tpl
