I updated some info in my profile and my pic disappeared (even though I didn't touch it) and I cannot restore it no matter how many times I've tried or method used.

Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

Thanks.

I've moved this to the Engine Room, since it is very much on-topic there.

Anyway, my first guess is that your avatar pic is not exactly 100x100px. The current version of the site engine is quite prickly about that, moreso that it used to be. Try adjusting the pic to exactly 100x100px and let us know if that works.

Yep, 100x100 (which it has always been) and it still isn't showing.

The thing is, when I link to it (which it always was before) or even try to upload it, it shows in the 'edit profile' for a second, then as soon as I click "Change Profile", it disappears and goes back to the (no pic) option.  ???

Could you post the image you're trying to use? A closer inspection might give some insight.

This is the one I'd been using here for years that suddenly disappeared.



Thanks.

When I try to upload it, I get a message that "Your attachment couldn't be saved. This might happen because it took too long to upload or the file is bigger than the server will allow." As you can see, I was able to upload another avatar which is roughly half as big. Can you try again with a smaller (fewer kB) avatar image?

Cut it in half (kb-wise) and third and got the same message as you. Also tried a smaller one jpg-wise and still no luck.

I don't understand why id vanished to begin with.

Hosting? I've uploaded to my account, maybe try this link?  :-\

Still not working, and no error message.

I recall some years ago I was unable to link an avatar after Dropbox went https-only. At the time proteus was able to patch it, but the software may have been updated since then. JIT, did you (or your hosting provider) just turn on redirect-to-https, and are you able to turn it off again?

Nope, same problem; shows up in my profile when I add the link, then reverts to 'no image'.

It's been located, unchanged, on my domain since I joined the forum years ago. https://www.tmlindsey.com/tmlindsey07.jpg

I've tried that same link as-well-as uploading in different sizes and different images. I've also tried from a different browser. Always the same result  ???

So Weird.

I do believe https was recently "enforced" by my host. They say "you don't want that" to turning it off  :-\

Oh, well, got to be a forum glitch then.

What we need here is a new admin for the new year, if Proteus can ever be bothered to hand over the keys to von Corax then patches and problems like this might be sorted, so for the moment, no solution it seems.
