ok. now i need to know how to attach a thumbnail. i'm computer illiterate and can't figure it out. and i can't find the answer, even though i know i've seen it before. sorry to make you repeat yourself. :-\ :)

actually, i think the answer might be buried somewhere so it'd be good to have it here as well. :)

underneath the text box where you type your post there is "Additional Options." one of those is to Manage Attachments. click on that button. a window will pop-up. it will have directions (written in black text on a black background. ::]) that basically say "click the browse button to loook for your pic, which must be one of these file types: bmp, doc, gif, jpe, jpeg, jpg, pdf, png, psd, txt, zip"

if everything goes well, you will just need to hit "upload" then "close window" once that's done & you're good to go. :)

two common problems with uploading are file size & file type. if the thing you want to attach doesn't end in one of those listed above, it needs to be changed to work. if your file is too big (usually with pictures), you'll need to shrink it to be a smaller size. any other problems can be addressed as you bring them up. :) hope that helps ya. :D

highlight the area underneath where it says "Upload Errors" & see what the black text (on black background) says. it'll be easier to help you when we know what it says. ;)

Do you have any picture resizing software? Or even you can resize with the "paint" program.

if you don't have one, you can email it to me and i can resize it for you...*shrugs*

as for a custom avatar, it's actually rather easy. if you have a Paint program or Photoshop or something like that on your computer, just make your custom av. in there (though it must be 75 by 75 pixels or 19.5 KB, whichever is smaller). then, in the avatar portion of the User Control Panel you can upload an avatar from your computer. just click "Browse" & find the pic you want to use (the one you made earlier in Paint). voila! you have your own custom avatar. :D
