    It's easy. Read here - http://www.gardenstew.com/about4115.html

    Set up a photobucket account, upload from your home pc, copy "img" link under uploaded photo and paste in your post.

    There is a "testing" thread way down toward the bottom of the threads list where you can practice - Frank has thought of everything!

    Alright...I think I'm figuring this out :-D Thanks for all the help! I have one more question though, I just tried to put a avatar picture in my profile and it comes up and says:

    Unable to upload file
    Debug Mode
    Line: 251
    File: usercp_avatar.php

    and I said "huh? :-? " and it didn't answer me! :-o lol Help again!

    Hi gardening_maniac, you most likely tried to upload a type of image file that won't work for an avatar. Images of the following file types will work, .gif, .jpg, .jpeg, .png For example a image with file type .bmp will not work. Hope this helps :smt023

    Have you also read Adding an avatar / profile picture tutorial? This may prove useful also.

    Hey maniac, what's easier is to dl that image to your pc, then upload that image as your avatar by selecting the browse button to link to it from within your pc. (Oh, so much easier to do than to explain.....) :rolleyes:
