    Nah, there's a problem with the photo thing -- either try uploading a pic that doesn't have spaces in the filename, or wait and I'll fix it over the w/e... travelling at the moment.

    Sorry!

    PS You mentioned you're travelling at the moment Somatam... are you in Sulawesi yet? Hope you're having a good time if so. Did you manage to rent a bike?

    I still can't figure out how to get a photo into my profile. I don't see any upload prompt. Just a question mark.

    Tilapia at the bottom of the Member Profile page (link top right of every page once you're logged in) you should see two rows -- one for Thumbnail and one for main image. If you've not uploaded anything before then it should just say something like:
    "You have no thumbnail uploaded -- click here to upload one."

    You click on the link and you should get a popup with the instructions to upload the pic -- do you see all that?

    Lemme know and I'll see what the prob is.

    No, I don't see any of that. There is no prompt anywhere in my profile page(s) for uploading images. Not even when I click on Modify Profile, or whatever it is.

    Don't think I'm missing anything. Can't be that much different from other sites I use.

    Thanks.

    It doesn't work unless you click "public" somewhere. The default is set to private ...though why anyone would want to upload a photo onto their profile for private use is beyond me.

    I expect it's to do with spambots.

    What is what, the little picture?

    Think it was a little Buddha outside Wat Hualanmpong that I took a photo of. My member photo is a pic from near the Patrona towers in KL - malaysia.

    I'm set to "public." Still, no prompt for uploading an image.

    Now we're in business!

    Tilapia, you had uploaded images ages ago, but there was a blank space in the filename, which means it doesn't display properly (which was why you were seeing nothing in the admin side too) I removed the space and now it's showing up.

    SBE had a similar problem, so i'll make it a bit clearer in the instructions that there can't be any spaces in the filename.

    My next question is, what is the picture of? I can't make head nor tails of it!

    Cheers

    Tilapia is a Buddha too I think but I though jon's buddha was a baby in a nappy holding up a birthday cake.

    Must cut down on the bordeaux....
