How to post an avatar or siggy in your profile

Postby Abiding in His Word on Sun Feb 18, 2007 5:47 pm

If you do not have a photobucket account, please go to www.photobucket.com and create one. After doing that follow these instructions.

1. Right click on your signature or avatar

2. Select Copy Image Location

3. At your photobucket account choose to upload an image using a URL.

4. Paste the image Location and upload. Do this the same way for both your signature and avatar

5. Now right click and copy the new url location that photobucket has stored in your account if you need to fix your avatar. It is right under the picture in your photobucket account that should now be what you are used to seeing. For your signature you will need to use the IMG code line instead of the url line.

6. Come back to FP and edit your profile.

7. Find the correct lines for your avatar and signature and paste each code into it.

8. Be sure to save the changes.

9. The average size for an avatar should stay at approximately 100 x 100 pixels. The size for a siggy should be no larger than 100 x 400-450 pixels.

If you have trouble, just pm any one of us mods or admins and we will try to help.
