http://jwiger.no-ip.info/media/Pictu...t_away-200.jpg
and http://jwiger.no-ip.info/media/Pictu.../Lavafield.jpg respectivley. why am i so limited to size if i'm hosting the pics on my web server? and why does the php script put the ... in the middle of the name of hyperlinks?

Hey J,

The max width of the avatar is 150, height 125. Profile pic can be 150 wide by 200.

I will fix it for you if you want. I'm assuming you want the stang as the avatar?

Thanks,

Lem

that is correct, i'd like the mustang pic as the avatar. From the experiance of running my own web server in my house i totally understand bandwidth and web page space restrictions but i just think that as far as the profile is concerned size shouldn't be as restrictive for off-site hosted pics, and avatars since they aren't hurting your bandwidth.

-i hope i don't sound rude, i just like to push my freedom as far as it will go, espeacially when it involves things hosted on my own server.

Hey J,

You dont sound rude, the reason for the size, is not bandwidth, its more about people being able to see a post, not just one persons avatar. As far as the profile pic, I guess your right, I dont see any harm with increasing the image size. I'll go ahead and increase it to 400 wide for now.

Thanks for the tips,

Lem

Hey J,
I increased it to 325x400. You should be good to go now.

Thanks,

I tried linking the profile pic again and i'm getting this message:

vBulletin Message
Error - cannot find an image at the specified URL. Please make sure that you have entered a valid URL.

i have no idea why the link won't work, maybe it's the length i noticed in the first post of this thread that the script cut out the middle and replaced it with ... i know this didn't happen when i put the link to an off site pic in to the thread but i wonder if for some reason the code is abreviating links in the profile pages.

i checked this link:
http://www.powerstrokeforum.com/images/jwiger.jpg
and it didn't work either, maype it's a problem with my domain

Hmm, it must be a server thing. I uploaded it to my server, and linked it, and it worked just fine. I got it fixed for you.

Thanks,

Lem
