Problems uploading Avatars

Post by mattbussey » Wed Nov 21, 2007 10:06 pm

Howdy,
I get the following error message when I try to upload an avatar to my account. I can only assume that users also have similar problems although several of them have avatars so maybe not everyone does. The forum is at http://www.brewersroundtable.com/forum . Thanks a lot and happy thanksgiving.

Your avatars folder is not writeable.
You need to use your FTP application to set the permissions/CHMOD/attributes for that folder to 777
