Okay, it looks like avatars are working.

You can upload them via "My Control Center" up top.  Pictures may be up to 100 by 100 pixels, 30KB in size and .jpg, .gif, or .png formats.

I am going to play with this later, because I do not like how the avatar screws with the formatting of the post.  Perhaps moving them over to the far right?

Just me playing around.  I would delete this one, but Ash replied under it and that would delete his as well.

Hey it's cool Andrew.
Do what you gotta do.
I can always reload it.

Traditionally, the avatar on most message boards has been to the left of the post.
But set it however you like.
It don't bother me none.

Boy!
It's really picky as to what it will let you use as an avatar.

The pic really has to be small and square.
Rectangular shaped pics, be they horizontal or vertical can't be used.

I must've tried at least 5-10 pics and only one of them worked...the one you see above.

Can the 30 KB size limit be increased?

I set it to 100 by 100 pixels.  Anything that size or smaller will work.  You can usually see how many pixels a image is by right clicking on it and going to properties.  There are a couple of avatar sites out there and most conform to 100 by 100.  If you get much larger you start screwing with the page layout.

The 30 KB size limit (the other limit I put on them) can be changed, but I think that should be good.  Some people are still on dial-up and large avatars can start seriously slowing down their viewing.

The avatars do not work correctly in flat view.  I dropped a line to the Phorum support guys, because the fix looks like more work than I want to do.

Quite frankly 100x100 and 30kb is being very generous as a lot of boards won't allow above a 10kb image. I like the 100x100, but my avatar is only 5.2kb; helps to conserve bandwidth. I have been on some boards where members linked to avatars off site, and used animated gifs (as much as 600kb in size). Being on dial-up, I stopped frequenting those boards due to it being too difficult to access them.

You mean there are still people out there who use dial-up & flat view?!

Hehe!  
Just kidding.

Dial-up should be banned.  
It should be filed under "Cruel & Unusual Punishment".

Got my Avatar up in runnning. I like viewing in flat view even though I have DSL. Hope the flat view with seeing the avatars can be fixed.
