Just check you are following these exact steps first. Open another browser window and follow them through. :D

1. Click USER CP to go to your control panel.
3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and choose CHANGE AVATAR.
4. Again, scroll to the bottom of this page and make sure USE CUSTOM AVATAR *IS* selected.
5. Either enter a UR or upload an avatar from your computer by hitting the "BROWSE" button.
6. Hit SUBMIT MODIFICATIONS when you are happy with your choice.

Your custom avatar should now be on display. If it isn't, please leave whatever avatar its selects for you and I will look into the problem.

There is a glitch, but I will explain how to fix it. The problem is after you check yes use custom avatar, and go into browse to upload the picture from your PC, the yes box becomes unchecked for some reason. So just check it once more after uploading, then press submit. :)

I'm having avatar problems now as well. I change it every 2-3 days and it hasn't been a problem until today. I'm getting this error message constantly:

The uploaded file is not a valid GIF or JPG file. Please ensure that it is and try again.

This was NOT a problem before but now it is. I've followed Amanda's instructions carefully and still get the error message.
EG, I noticed the glitch as well and recheck the box I still get the error message. I don't know. :confused:

Evonne: thanks for pointing that out. I wasn't aware browsing for a custom avatar on your computer was causing that to happen

Beige: it should be working fine. I just uploaded about ten different custom avatars without any problem (take a look at my marti avatar :D). I made one adjustment to the setup so please try again and see if it works. If it doesnt, feel free to email me a copy of your avatar and I'll see if I can replicate your problem.

Great, it works again! :D Really appreciate that you guys are so pro-active even for something trivial (my opinion, hehe) like the avatars. :o ;)
