Post by LilaP on February 21st 2015, 3:26 pm

I am wondering if the avatar size that is there 64 KB...can this be made a bit bigger? some of the ladies are having problems cause the size is larger then then the 64 KB and they can't use the avatar.
thanks

I do not know about kb, but you can set the maxium Avatar size allowed on the entire forum in: ACP-->Display-->Avatars-->Avatars-->Personal Avatars, set the size you want (it is in pixels) save.

I hope this helps,
-Brandon

yes I have already changed that part to 200 pixels, but I need to know if I can change the KB. it only allows 64 KB and some avatars that are 200 pixels are larger in size.
thank you

I think the closest you can get is having your members upload their avatars on an image hosting site and upload it as their avatars through linking to an off-site avatar. From what I know, it's pretty much impossible to change the maximum KB for uploading on-site.

I believe that is one of the limitations that can not be changed.

Do you mean an attachment size? Because that is the only thing I know of that uses 'kb'. You can change this in ACP-->General-->Attachments--> Attachment configuration. Set the 'kb' size limit you want and save.

no brandon the avatars have a max kb size when you upload them .. this is because forumotions host these images free of charge they don't get added to your website storage ..so there for they don't want you uploading huge images taking up alot of space on the servers

My instructions are for changing the attachment size limit for posts, I do not know of any avatar setting that uses 'kb' so if your users are uploading them as fIle attachments then my instructions will up the limit so they can upload past a certain number of 'kb'.

Edit: Oh ok Twisted.

To see the limitations do this: press the profile button in the navigation menu then the avatar tab. Look for the message at the top.

I have changed the size of the pixels already to 200 from 150 I believe they had in there. it was the size in KB I wanted to know if we could change. to change the KB it would be a larger size file uploaded.

Please avoid using caps as it is considered as screaming and is very hard to read.
