Custom avatar problem

Postby Kipi » Tue May 17, 2011 5:12 pm

Okay, I have a small problem here.

I was going to upload new avatar for myself, but each and every time I try to save the changes I get error "Invalid File". I tried several different versions of the same image, each of them being at most 14kb in size and at max 75*75 pixels, so neither cap was crossed. I have tried several different file types, GIF, JPG, PNG and even BMP, with no luck.

I checked all the FAQ sections as well as used Search feature to see if I was missing something vital, but there is no other restrictions mentioned besides the kb and pixel limits.

The problem also exists if I try to use picture uploaded elsewhere, like Photobucket.

For the record I tried to change to another preset avatar, and that worked flawlessly. Any ideas?

Okay, have done some more testing, and it seems that the custom avatar is broken here in GB. I can use any avatar from the preset list fine, but every time I try to use custom avatar I just get the invalid file -error. The interesting thing is that the avatars, which don't work here, work fine in other forums which use the same vBulletin version. That's why I think the problem is in GB side.

It's not working here, either. I didn't get an error, but mine just doesn't change. It shows up in my profile, but not in any of my posts.
