What are the maximum avatar dimensions?  Can we use animated gifs?

Maximum dimensions are 150x150. It's preferred if you can keep your filesizes low. Also, I think uploading might be broken, so best to host externally on Imgur or another site that allows hotlinking, if possible.

You know... I wanted to change my avatar to animated GIF, but it looks like avatar changing is broken atm and I'm without avatar now... cool. :/

I'll check for permissions errors, but it does seem to be working from this end. The important thing is to make sure you use an external site to host your avatar, and make sure this is selected:

Interesting...


After choosing 'specify avatar by URL', setting correct link and clicking save it reloads page, green "Your profile has been updated successfully. " appears, but the avatar settings again gets into 'no avatar' position.

Perhaps a browser extension is getting in the way? I just tried in a Chrome incognito tab with a test account and was able to get it working, so it's definitely not admin powers that are making it work right on my end.

What is the URL to your avatar? That could be related also.

Nope. I tried with Firefox (noscript+uBlock), Chromodo (Chromium engine) and clear Microsoft Edge. Same problem. I'm trying to set back the image that I had for several months:
https://s19.postimg.org/cnwxww5lf/avatr.png

I checked POST method for action=profile;area;save and everything is transmitted correctly, but then I get "302 moved temporarily".
I'll try from mobile.

EDIT: worked from mobile (CM Browser)

That shouldn't have fixed it. However, looking at your profile, I've noticed one slight difference:

The url you linked in your post:
https://s19.postimg.org/cnwxww5lf/avatr.png

The url that worked:
http://s19.postimg.org/cnwxww5lf/avatr.png

The difference is subtle, but the problem seems to have been HTTPS.

Yeah, I assume it's a bug with SMF. I hate this software more and more every time I dig into it, but it's not mine to replace with something better.

Seems like the issue was using HTTPS.

I can't add an avatar to save my life here. Even used other sites that others are usin'. No biggie I suspect I'm in a different "group" that has permissions messed up me thinks.

Have you tried Maki's image link above to test? Works fine for me, what image are you trying to use?

Edit: Ok.. now I can't change my avatar??
