profile picture wont upload?

I'm trying to upload a profile picture but this just isn't happening. The picture is a gif file that is 2.1kb and 65x65 pixels and I'm trying to upload from my computer. Why is this not working for me? Thanks for any help.

Try uploading to imageshack then linking the image

Yeah, expect it would be much easier to not have to do that. Not to mention I don't want to do that. But if thats the only solution then I guess I must.

Re: profile picture wont upload?

I'm having a similar problem: unable to upload a small jpeg either from my local machine or my server space. I get:

General Error

Could not write avatar file to local storage. Please contact the board administrator with this message

DEBUG MODE

Line : 179
File : usercp_avatar.php


My avatar image URI, by the way, is http://polis.nbtsc.org/~max/maxorhai.small.jpeg

Tomorrow we're switching the forum software to punbb. Among other things it will fix this problem.

This has been the case since I joined (over 2 years ago now - gulp!) I link to a file on my web server. I suspect that's how everyone else does it too.

Yeah, I saw that announcement. The only problem it has is the lack of support for polls, but maybe there is a plugin for that? Either way I'm looking forward to see the new forums.

Is the image 80x80 pixels & 10KiB or less? I presume this is to change your avatar?

Does the interface give any error message when you try to upload the image?

oolyvi appears to have figured out how to set an avatar. Putting this topic back to sleep.
