Sunfish has some helpful information for adding an avatar in her topic, Helpful Hints for Forum Participation. I will copy it below. If you are still having trouble after reading her tips, let me know.

Adding an Avatar:

You may also notice that many members have a picture, or avatar. If you have a picture of your own that you would like to use, the easiest approach is to upload to a free image host online, then use that URL to link your picture in your control panel on DINET. Several free image hosting sites include:

http://www.imageshack.us/

http://www.free-webh...age-hosting.php

http://www.imagedad.com

Alternatively, if you are tech savvy and have webspace allocated to you by your internet service provider (AOL, MSN, Verizon, Comcast, etc) you can upload your images to your own personal webspace and copy the full URL of your image.

Once you have done this go to "My Controls" and along the left hand side click on the option for "Edit Avatar Settings" under the "Personal Profile" subheading. On the blank line under "Your image avatars" there is a space to "Enter a URL to an online avatar image." In that space you need to cut and paste the URL for your image at your host site. Click "Update Avatar" to save your settings and you should be all set.

If you do not have a picture of your own that you would like to use there are also some available on the site on the "Edit Avatar Settings" page under "Pre-installed avatars."

I upload a photo and it never shows up. Not sure why. Used Photobucket and from the computer. Usually these things work fine.

I know that in the past the forum settings have not allowed the uploading of pictures onto DINET (even though there is a box that says "upload a new image from you computer"). An avatar has to be linked from another site, and the link has to be a direct link (not an HTML code or forum code). The link will begin like this: http://www.

Does this help?

Think I'll have tok give up for now. Would be so nice if everyone could get avatars. I tried it all.

Thank you so much for fixing my avatar! The more the better with avatars. Looks nice with a lot of them. Warmer. :D

You're welcome, Sallysblooms. :) Glad I could help.

If any of you want an avatar but can't get it to work, feel free to let me know and I'll do what I can to fix it for you.
