The red cross in your avatar means that the link in your profile to your chosen picture has broken. Possibly you have rearranged the album where the picture is, which has changed the url. I suggest you find your picture, copy its url, then log into the HWI Forum, click on "Profile" at the top of the screen, then click "Modify Profile", scroll down to "Avatar URL" and paste the new url to replace the old one, then click "Modify Profile" at the bottom of the screen. This should restore your avatar to normal, but you may need to adjust the width and height in your profile because it will probably default to 65 pixels square. The maximum size is 100 pixels square.
Hi Richard, you wrote "Possibly you have rearranged the album where the picture is" I don't think so, but it is no problem to make a new upload, and put a new link in my profile. Greetings, Lothar
Hi Lothar, I have just tried to load your picture directly in Internet Explorer - by copying the link www.lothar-jurk.de/HW/HWI/LJ/lj.jpg into the address bar. This produces an error message "HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found."
Therefore, it seems to me that Richard is right... it isn't a Proboards error but the file either no longer exists, is no longer in the same place, or the file name has changed. Very strange!
Hi Dave, many thanks for your support. Today I made an upload again and checked my avatar-URL. Everything was o.k., of course. So I was calling my provider hotline. They made a check and now it is working again. So I think it was a problem at the server of my homepage provider. Sorry. Regards, Lothar P.S. "NEVER CHANGE A RUNNING SYSTEM"
