Thanks Bob, it occurred to me what you meant after I had posted and had a reply from Trystan.  The red wine's poured out but I haven't had a sip yet, perhaps that's my problem.  ::)

I've split this off from the original topic, to keep it more visible, till we've sorted out the glitches.

Most avatars survived "The Change" but some of you may have to re-load them.

At the moment, it seems the best results come from:

- go to Profile
- go to RootsChat Profile Information
- click on I will upload my own picture:
- and browse your computer to find the image
- click on Change Profile

 ???

I've always done mine like that - I thought everyone did  :-\

Gadget

You have been lucky Gadget, for some reason that method has never, until now, worked for me.  I believe I'm not alone either.  We had to post the picture in a thread then go to properties and copy the url and then paste into a box on the profile information page. 

That was what I tried to do tonight, only to find that the easy method now was there and I could use that!

I was the same as you Kerry - previously couldn't upload from PC and had to go through the rigmarole of posting and copying address, etc.

That didn't work this morning, but Trystan fixed it while I was out putting another load of washing on the line.

Hello Berlin Bob and Trystan,

Just came across your topic, so I went to 'Profile' (clicked on the picture), up came
the 'Element Properties' box with all relevant details.

Width - 108px.
Height - 144px.
Size of File - 4.2 KB (4298bytes).

Am I correct in assuming that we are both within the recommended limitations.   
If not please say so and we will have a go at resizing.

Have never used the smileys, I guess we have helped save in that area.

Hi Jeanette,

yes, you are correct. 
Those sizes are within all given limits, so there is absolutely no problem there  :)

Bob

The mystery of my disappearing Avatar has been solved!

Bob

That's a new way of loading an avatar, I've had to do the properties and copy the code before.

Congratulations - much simpler, I like it ;D ;D

Kerry

I'm with you Kerry.  I had to do it the other way before aswell, and have never been able to upload a pic from my own computer.  It's now working perfectly ;)
