I have avatars set to URL only, althought when you go into profiles and change the drop down list from built in to URL the page reloads and the list is reverted to built in.

When the forum was created it was assumed that the Built In avatars would be enabled when ever custom avatars are allowed.
This is not a vere good logic and this will be resolved shortly. I suspect a patch to this problem will be avaliable tommorow.

Fixed in the latest CVS. To fix this problem grab register.php & adm/admglobals.php from the latest CVS snapshot and replace your files with the ones from the snapshot.

If you have problems doing so, drop me an email and I'll guide you through.

cvs co -d:pserver:anonymous(at)forum(dot)prohost(dot)org:/forum forum_install

but no luck, norice any errors?

Ah? You put a URL to an image inside the textbox for custom avatars. Then you submit the profile. The admin(s) then MUST approve the custom avatars.

P.S. Could you give me a url to your forum pls.

yeah that isn't working, when i enter "http://mentor.cc.purdue.edu/~gasperud/stormy.jpg" in the custom avatar box.

that address space gets cleared out when I hit update and the avatar approve menu is empty for the admin account.

I believe the problem was my fault, with an accidental slash in a wrong page. Please download "register.php" from the latest CVS once again (file revision 1.27) it should fix the problem. Please let me know if it did.

The register.php that is inside the latest CVS has an md5sum of "bfa8411766491e037c6369bb03afad46" and a file size of "29069 bytes".


cvs -d:pserver:anonymous(at)forum(dot)prohost(dot)org:/forum co forum_install/install_data/docs/register.php


should fetch you the right file.

Nope, there reason you cannot enter the URL is because register.php is erroneously showing the Custom Avatar upload form instead of a plain text box where you can enter a URL.

When you paste a URL it tries to look for a file who's name is the URL on you local harddrive was obviously fails.

Could you please do another check of the md5sum on your register.php please.

If you can meet me on IRC (irc.openprojects.net #fudforum) and I'll see if I could help you resolve this issue in a more timely manner.
