Trying to upload a profile picture to my forum profile, keeps showing torn pieces of paper, tried every format, size, and different browsers, was wondering if anyone may have any suggestions that I may have overlooked ?

 

Thanks,

I recommend using gravatar. Fast and easy and can keep your avatar synced multiple places. As for simple upload, keep to .pmg or jog and it must be at least 200x200 pixels.

Can you post up the image you want to use? I might be able to tinker with it for you.

Hello MightyP

 

I was just trying to use this pic until I find one more suiting, everything looks to be right, so I'm not sure what I may be doing wrong.

 

Thanks for the help !

SkutterK, I'm guessing you're doing everything right and that it's just an issue on the ITS side. I couldn't change my profile picture either, without using Gravatar. You picture is the right size and resolution, so it should be fine. I tried your picture and a different one of my own and couldn't get either to work. Dumped both into Gravatar and they updated no problem. At this point, you can wait until the ITS IT guys get it figured out or just use Gravatar. I'd suggest Gravatar.

 

Good luck,

P

 

P.S. Even used your picture as my own profile briefly to make sure it'd work.

Thanks for the help MightyP, very much appreciated.

 

Whats weird now is, my Gravatar pic will work for the ITS site, but not in the forum, lol

 

I'm giving a whole new meaning to the word "Noob", lol

 

Thanks again !

The forums and the website are two different entities.

While likely hosted on the same web server, the website is using Wordpress as a back end while the forum uses IP.Board.  

 

They are not on speaking terms for password security reasons. =)
