Solved avatar-link to off site url

Post by tamran on March 31st 2009, 6:30 am

i seem to be having a problem. on my board when you want to put an avatar up it will not let you link to an off site avatar. say i use a link from photobucket it just gives the standard "removed or over the limit" photobucket icon. i've even tried using a avatar within the size limit of 64kb and it does the same thing. i'm not over my limit as i pay for my photobucket account.

i'm not 100% sure how the upload avatar to the board thing works. but i don't want a bunch of people uploading and then it taking up space. i'd also like my members to be able to link to an off site avatar so that they could have something that may be a little bigger than the 64KB.


is this an issue with certain board types? is there a way to turn this on or off and i don't know about it? please help i want the link to off site avatar option to work for myself and my members.

Sorry its not possible to have anything above 64 KB.
It does say this

i do understand that. but it won't let you link to an off site avatar at all. even when it's under those requirements. that was my question. does the link to OFF SITE avatar not work at all on these boards.

here is a screen shot of what happens. this avatars size is also only 100x100 which is within the size limits i have set.

Probably photobucket does not allows hotlinking

Use the following URL, it should work
