After you uploaded it, did you hit the button in the bottom right corner that says "Change Profile"?

You might have to scroll down to find it. It is a confirmation button of sorts.

As Aeschylus said make sure you upload then click 'change'

Can you upload from an iPad 1? When I select that option for my avatar, the "upload file" button is greyed out?

File uploading of any type is not supported through browsers on iOS devices.

Ok I'm going to keep at this but any help is appreciated...

Yes I'm hitting the change profile and it says it's done but different things happen.

I'm not uploading...can't.  When I use the link (from photo bucket) that I used to use it just doesn't register and even though it says updated there is no avatar.  When I tried the IM link it seemed to work but shows on posts only as a question mark in a blue box...

??????  Thanks for ideas!  I have to figure this out! :-\

Upload only works from a PC/Mac, and will only upload an image from your computer (not a site like photobucket). So you'll need to download the photobucket image to your computer first (if it's not already on your computer).


Edit: you seem to have a photobucket-hosted avatar! Hopefully your problem's now solved?

Yes thanks Ukhippo!  I was using photo bucket before but when I was choosing the link I was choosing the wrong one (different from the other site I think). Anyway thanks again for the help! :)

It's the same as the old site but you're right, they are two different link codes. Images in the sig (or posted within a message box) are image links (IMG code). Avatar links are direct links. Direct links can be tagged as image links as well by highlighting the direct link code and using the "Insert image" button on the toolbar above the message box to add the necessary tags. But for avatar images use the direct link code.
