Thread: Loss of avatar pictures

    Loss of avatar pictures

    Unfortunately, when I moved the avatar and signature images to the file system from the database, they were corrupt. Not sure why but they can not be fixed. Only the new ones you have uploaded show. I will be transferring them back to the database to see if they can be saved. You might lose the ones you just uploaded. If they still don't work, I'll put them back on the file system as it puts strain on the DB. If that's the case images will be broken until the user uploads a new one.

    Well, it didn't work I switched it back to the file system. If you have any problems with new avatars uploading, please let me know. I also noticed that it seems we are only allowed one option for avatars unless we upload a new one. Has it always been like this?

    I don't know. I don't remember ever seeing even one until I loaded a new avatar soon after the forum came back up.

    I kind of sort of recall, that multiple uploaded avatar pictures did not appear as available selections when changing your avatar.
    They did exist in your uploaded photos or .jpeg attachments and you could select an avatar from an already uploaded image if it met the size and format restrictions.
    Yeah, I remember that.
    Kind of.
    Sort of.
    Yep.
