Cannot Upload Avatars

Post by dimitris18 » Sun Oct 14, 2007 6:38 pm

Hi! I've installed an new theme in my phpbb 2 forum and i deleted this that was pre-installed. The problem is that users can't upload avatars! Everything seem to have worked alright and a message says that the change in the profile has been completed successfully but the image does not appear and instead of the image you see a "?"
What's wrong? Thank you

Make sure the images/avatars/ directory is CHMODed to 777. This can be done using your FTP program.

I am having the same trouble but changing to 777 didn't resolve the issue.

telling us what you observe while trying to upload might help.

using any control-panel install/update is like shooting yourself in the foot. It won't kill you, but you're really going to hobble around until it heals.
Using the wrong tools (Front Page, DreamWeaver) gives the same results
