you need to upload it to an external image hosting service, either your own webhost, or else http://www.imageshack.us or http://www.photobucket.com work great.  Then copy the url of the image, and then go into "My Controls -> Avatar Settings" and then paste the URL where it says to put the image url.  Thats all you need to do. :)smile.gif  Hope that helped.

hmm, I don't remember that (but then again, I have the always changing avatar here, and that requires a PHP server)

I wanted to have upload disabled because Invisionfre allow 16 MB only and I want to keep it for emoticons and other files uploaded by members
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Yeah. MC/RS/UTI have upload for avatars, but to host such a small image it isn't much. But 100s of them add up fast! :Ptongue.gif
