I can't upload anymore avatars?
It would be helpful if you can tell us the error you receive.
You have to upload it to a website like photobucket and use the URL to upload photos i've noticed. The adding photos/ attachment feature just gives me a red x on any browser. No error code.
This goes for avatars as well, just tried it from my hard drive and get the red x but when i use a URL it works fine.
Hmm, I have no idea why this is happening. I'll speak to Solidus later to see if he knows. As far as I know this only started after we moved.
Works fine for me, which browser are you guys using?
Love the Avatar. Maryse is bawz.
No problems for me.
What is the actual error message you get OP?
Just tried uploading a new one myself. Got a big ol' 500 Internal Server Error
Just uploaded a new one and it worked fine for me. Weird.
But now I'm trying to change back I get an internal server error
I just changed mine back and forth 3 times with no errors.
Odd. maybe it only happens if it's trying to resize the image or something?
Sometimes it says, "The file upload failed. Please choose a valid file and try again."
And other times it says, "Webpage expired." and stuff like that.
I don't know much of the inner workings of the servers and such but the first message sounds like you are using a file format that doesn't agree with the upload engine. I'd recommend either JPG's, GIF's or PNG files. I personally prefer JPG's.
The second one sounds like it could be communication issues between your computer and the sites server which could just be your internet connection faffing about.
Am I hitting near home @[euantor] ?
The first one was a png.
But I think it's working now.
Works for me now as well. Not sure what changed if anything.
Try to stick to JPG's from now on is my suggestion. I only use JPG files for my avatars and have never run into this kind of problem.
PNG's are fine dude. ^
