Avatars

Postby DennisOBrien » Thu Mar 01, 2007 2:58 am

Avatars are the graphics under the user names of users. You can have one of you own! You can use one of many available on the site or use one from your PC or another web site (They must be 80X80 pixels or less and less than 6144 bytes is size).

Here is what to do!

If you want an avatar but do not want to find one of your own, there a many right here on this site you can use!

    Look near the top of the page and click on the Profile link.

    Scroll all of the way to the last section titled Avatar control panel and click on the Show gallery button.

    The first gallery (alphabetically) will open automatically.

    When you click on the drop down box arrow it will show a list of "categories".

    Click on a category, and the drop down box will collapse and show the category that you clicked on.

    Click on the Go button and it will show you the contents of the category you selected.

    Click on a radio button under the image that you want displayed by your posts, then click on the Select avatar button.

    If you decide that you don't want an avatar displayed next to your posts, you can just click on the Cancel avatar button.

    You will then be taken back to the Avatar control panel, but now it will show the image that you selected.

    Click on the Submit button, and you are done!

If you want an avatar and have one of you own:

    Look near the top of the page and click on the Profile link.

    Scroll all of the way to the last section titled Avatar control panel. To the right of the text “Upload Avatar from your machine:” click the Browse Button.

    In the Choose File dialog, find the file you want to use and click OK.

    Click on the Submit button, and you are done!

If you know the URL of the Avatar you want to use:

    Look near the top of the page and click on the Profile link.

    Scroll all of the way to the last section titled Avatar control panel. To the right of the text “Upload Avatar from a URL:” enter the URL of the Avatar you’d like to use.

    Click on the Submit button, and you are done!
