I'm not able to edit my profile. Is there a command you have for that?

At top of page, click "Profile".

On left of page, click one of the options under the header "Modify Profile".

Thanks. I found that earlier. But what about the picture? I tried using a certain one from Google, but it didn't show up. What went wrong? Did I make a mistake?

You have hto use a html image coder like the one that is used by photobucket. It embeds the image into text formation so it can appear next to what you type.

First, make sure the image you are using is not too large and conforms to the image policy (see rules and announcements forum). Mine is about the average acceptable size.

Second, make sure the file isn't several dozen megabytes in terms of filesize. That slows down the loading of threads.

Third, get the absolute URL of the image, IE http://www.corneriasound.com/sigs/slottrap.gif .

Enclose the URL in the {IMG} tags in this format: {img}http://image.url{/img} (replace {} with []). IE {img}http://www.corneriasound.com/sigs/slottrap.gif{/img}.

You get:

You post images in posts the same way.

This is explained in more detail in the Bulletin Board Code table in the posting section of the help. To get there, click "Help" at the top of the forums.

EDIT:

Or are you talking about the avatar? The Avatar is the picture under your postcount. Mine is that synthesizer keyboard you see to the left.

To change that, go into your profile. Hit "Forum Profile Information" under "Modify Profile" on the menu to the left.

Make sure it is no bigger than 150X200. If it is, the server will reject it. Also, make sure it conforms to the image policy or I or another staff member will remove it.

You can either put in the absolute URL to the image there by selecting "I have my own pic" and entering it or you can save it to your HDD and then upload it to the SFO server using the browse button and selecting "I will upload my own picture" ( I recommend this second method).

Click "Change Profile" to save.

The text under your name is the Custom Title. That field is above the signature. The text underneath the avatar is called Personal Text and is (conveniently) under the avatar settings.

All this is in the help, by the way.

Step 1: Get/Create image that you want to use as your avatar.

Step 2: Resize/Crop image to the less than or equal to the size of the avatar limit requirements (see Rules).

Step 3: Click Profile.

Step 4: Click "Forum Profile Information" under "Modify Profile".

Step 5: Select the "I will upload my own picture:" option, and click the button.

Step 6: Select the image you have modified and saved in Step 2.

Step 7: Click the "Change profile" button at the bottom of the page.

Step 8: Eat cake.

That depends on the graphics program you use, though most of them have a "resize" option on their File, Edit, or Image menus.

Uh Dwight, how do you resize images?  :nervous:

That question is well beyond issues with this forum. You need to do a google search for info about resizing images, since it's such a large subject.

Finished!  :nervous: This is my new avatar! In case you don't know, I know Sideways does, but that's Wheeljack from G1 Transformers. I don't know why, but I think he's a cool character. I really like his race car form, and I really hope he's in Transformers 2.

Sorry for yet another double post, but I don't need to further discuss anything in this thread. So I think now it needs to be locked. Dwight, will you do the honors?
