note: meanmistermustard merged three threads together on the 6th November 2014, the original details of which are as follows:

thread one, 'Setting An Avatar Pic', posts 1 -> 12.

thread two, 'Avatar Problem', posts 13 -> 25.

thread three, 'Avatar Sizes', posts 26 -> 50.

Find a picture you like on the web and save it to your computer. Open up the Beatles Bible forum and click the forum 'Profile' button. Then click 'Edit Avatar' and then click 'Browse'.

Look up the picture you saved and click 'OK'. Scroll down the page and click on 'Update Profile' and then refresh the page.

You can find good pictures here, here, or here. But really, it's only limited by how you phrase your Google queries. You're not making money off it, so no one should care what your avatar is.

(thanks to Skye for the above text)

The BB is just acting up. Try again later today.

hmm, still not working. maybe it's because I'm using an old model of laptop, the internet on my usual one isn't working. I'll try a different one.

If it doesn't take it the first time, it sometimes helps to rename the picture.

thanks Skye, but I just want to put a new lyric in my signature, no pictures or anything. a-hard-days-night-ringo-4I'm slightly puzzled but I think it may be an issue with this old computer I'm using.

*pays to read the post and not the thread title* a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Have you tried a different browser? I'm sure you'll figure it out, but it is strange.

i'm having the same problem, the forum software won't let me eliminate my signature. the update button doesn't update my signature, though the preview button appears to work correctly. right now i have an rudimentary emoticon, i would prefer absolutely nothing. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

on second thought i like this just fine.

I can't seem to edit my avatar or any information in profile section. I get this error:

Profile form could not be found [/home/gorky5/public_html/beatlesbible.com/www/wp/wp-content/plugins/simple-press/forum/profile/forms/sp-form-avatar.php]

Sorry, I'll look into it. I've just changed servers and some things might be broken - looks like this is one of them.

I can't check straight away but will as soon as I'm able to.

Hi. Could you try again please? I had to change some permissions to allow people to upload/change things on the server. Hopefully I've got it right, but possibly not. I managed to break the entire forum while trying to make it work - oops.

I thought it was fixed. We've had new people join who have been able to set their avatar pics. I don't really know what might be the cause - if I get time I'll look into it.

Just bear with me a little longer, if you can. I'll get onto it as soon as I can.

Can someone else try changing their avatar? Let me know if it works or if you get the same error message.
