So I spent the last three hours trying every which way to upload my new PB cover as my new avatar. I succeeded in losing my old avatar, but the new one just won't upload.

I enlisted the two techies at my home. They gave up.

I saved the image to many places and tried to copy from any and all of them.

I ate a box-load of cookies and crackers. Now I think I've gone crackers!


I read many (many!) pages of former threads that mostly had this resoved by Verla uploading the images herself... Verla? Anybody? Can you help?

As a regular avatar changer, I can tell you that it's probably the size of the image. How many kb is it?

Franzilla,
I think I love you!

When I need to change again, maybe I will search and find my own thread here...
 
Reminder to self: get someone to help with shrinkage. Or- copy image to WORD and then type "snipping tool" on the program bar to shrink the image. Then save it as a .jpg

Nice cover! Glad to have helped. I'll hope for many future avatar changes for you too - for each time you publish a new book!

Every time I try to change my avatar (my old one disappeared) or make any changes whatsoever to my profile, I get the following error:

Error 403: Forbidden
Your PHP settings have been disabled by an H-Sphere administrator.

Your current PHP configuration: -->

So how do I gain access to my profile?

Hi Jodene!

You can change your avatar image in your profile settings. http://www.verlakay.com/boards/index.php?action=profile

Hover over Modify Profile, then click Forum Profile.

From that page, you can upload a small image as your avatar.

Just make sure the image is small enough... or it won't load! Small means the number of kbs it is, not necessarily the physical size of the image!
