Adding an Avatar with iPad


#1

I tried to add an avatar with a photo on my iPad, and the location shows as

c:\fakedirectory\image.jpg

and it doesn’t upload.

Is this a forum/iPad compatibility issue?

Unfortunately, iThingees/Apple often do not play will with others. We have had a number of challenges with iPads.

The general avatar directory is http://www.psaudio.com/wp-content/avatars/ But please do not just put something in there. :)

If you post your appropriately sized desired avatar as an attachment to a post I should be able to coax it into the correct location.

The trouble with IOS is that not even attachments can be uploaded without going to a stationary machine/laptop. This is a huge flaw in my case (very cumbersome). I need to mail my iPad attachment to myself, download it on the other machine, edit the post (upload) and then publish. Then I can continue on my iPad 20_gif

Ouch!

Here I thought I offered an easy resolution. I am happy to try to get it to work. (Ironic as I dislike avatars of any kind, but the forum does not allow a null. Notice my tiny white square avatar?)

Is it just as awful to PM with an attachment? I assume so, but perhaps this is a work around for Bud.

This is not a problem with the Vanilla YABB.

Thanks. It really isn’t that important, but I was wondering what I was doing wrong. I like using my iPad for reading the forums. It stays on a table next to my chair, and makes the Internet like a magazine. I just pick up the iPad and check if there are any new posts.
