Profile Picture Doesn't Work?
« on: February 28, 2017, 17:04 »
I have tried multiple times to upload a profile picture, but it never works? I've checked the sizes, made sure they aren't bigger than 100x100, but every time I try to add one, it doesn't show and the setting switches back to "No icon." Is there anything else I need to check? Is it the hosting site I'm using? Or do they have to be exactly 100x100? I really want an icon. Please help.

Try and share the image with an image tag, like this.
Code: [Select]
[img]The link to the image goes here[/img]
Maybe we can help you if we know more about it.

I just looked through my old posts, remembering that I had a similar problem myself once, and I found this.
This might help you.

Lord Raven's image is 150x150, so 100x100 can't be the maximum limit.
I thought for a moment that maybe the image was too small, but mine is smaller than yours.

Ah, I read somewhere that the limit was 100x100, and somewhere else that it was 80x80. I went with 80x80 to be safe, but so far that isn't the problem apparently. It'd be so helpful if the page said what was wrong with the picture, instead of acting like it was updated but not updating it.

I can't quite work out what arcane restrictions in SMF or PHP caused this, but the image being linked was on HTTPS, which the forum doesn't quite like. Changing it to a http address worked. I've done this for you now as it was the easiest way to test my theory.

The image limit is 100x100, but the forums will allow a larger image and resize it when displaying it.

Ah, thank you. I'll keep track of that in the future.
