Hey, I hear that some people are having problems with this. Hopefully you can find all the information you'd like here. It is pretty simple so don't worry. If you're really stuck and don't know how to do it, don't worry, just e-mail me at heavymetalninja@gmail.com and I'll sort it out for you.

Avatars

At the moment, you must link to an image which is hosted elsewhere. You can't just upload to this site, or upload an image from elsewhere, you must make sure you select to link to the image. This is simple to do, here are instructions to follow using tinypic.com, but you could use any image hosting company like photobucket or imageshack if you have a gallery there.

1) Go to http://www.tinypic.com

2) The first box on the right is labelled "File". Click the button to the right of this labelled "Browse..."

3) Look through your folders on your computer and find the image that you want to use as your avatar.

4) Once you've done that, you can ignore everything else and just click on "UPLOAD NOW!" at the bottom.

5) It will say "Uploading... Please wait"

6) Then you will be taken to a page with various different ways to use the image. You need to copy the bottom link which is labelled "Direct Link for Layouts". (This is done automatically by tinypic.com, all you need to do is click on the link, which will look like http://i32.tinypic.com/14vmupt.jpg)

7) Come back to the Vegan Bodybuilding forum, and go to your profile (the link to your profile is top left of the main forum page, or follow this link)

8 ) At the bottom of your profile editing page, the last option is "Link to off-site Avatar". All you need to do is then click in that box, and then Right-Click your mouse and select Paste from the menu. This will put the address of your image into that box.

9) Press the bold button Submit at the bottom of the page, and you are all done.

If you still have problems, please do not hesitate to contact me, and I will help you out:

Posting Images

Here are instructions to follow using tinypic.com, but you could use any image hosting company like photobucket or imageshack if you have a gallery there.

1) Go to http://www.tinypic.com

2) The first box on the right is labelled "File". Click the button to the right of this labelled "Browse..."

3) Look through your folders on your computer and find the image that you want to post.

4) Once you've done that, you can ignore everything else and just click on "UPLOAD NOW!" at the bottom.

5) It will say "Uploading... Please wait"

6) Then you will be taken to a page with various different ways to use the image. You need to copy the bottom link which is labelled "Direct Link for Layouts". (This is done automatically by tinypic.com, all you need to do is click on the link, which will look like http://i32.tinypic.com/14vmupt.jpg)

7) Come back to the Vegan Bodybuilding forum, and go to the topic that you want to post the image in.

8 ) Make a new post as usual, then once you are at the point where you'd like your image to appear, type out exactly:

[img]

alternatively, you can press the button at the top of the screen labelled "Img". This will automatically make the correct code [img] appear in your message.

9) Now Right-Click and select Paste from the menu. This will place your image address directly after the [img] code.

10) Now, directly after your image address, you must type:

[/img]

alternatively, you can press the "Img" button again at the top. This will automatically put in the correct code.

11) So you should end up with:

Code:
[img]http://i32.tinypic.com/14vmupt.jpg[/img]


12) Complete the rest of your message, and post it as normal. The image should appear in your message where you put this code.

If you still have problems, please do not hesitate to contact me, and I will help you out:

Yes, photobucket will work just fine. Any image server where you can get the direct url to the pic will work.

I like image avatars as it is nice to see what people look like.

However, it is sort of a nuisance when the avatars are really large. You get a lot of one line messages that take up half the screen between the avatar and the sig.

ya I keep trying to shrink it down but all I have for a picture program is Microsoft Picture It!
I hate Microsoft with a passion and this program never saves my picture properly. I wanna shove it up Bill Gates' pooter.
