    Technical help wanted for the Forum site for my Avatar.

    Technic support is being sought as when I try to up load a photo to my Profile I keep getting this message below.

    Is this a common happening on this forum, as I has happened to 4 times in the last few days

    Max size for profile image is 97.7 kB, max size for avatars is 19.5 kB.

    Dunno if that fixes the problem you've got there, but it is at least "a" problem.

    Peter - I'm sure we've discussed this before.

    Are you trying to upload the photo directly from your PC or from an internet link?

    I think this forum has an esthetics filter for avatars.

    Try using this one: Attachment 628571
    let Source = #table({"Question","Thread", "User"},{{"Answered","Mark Solved", "Add Reputation"}}) in Source

    If I give you Power Query (Get & Transform Data) code, and you don't know what to do with it, then CLICK HERE

    Hi Olly

    I cannot receive your link

    Invalid Attachment specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator
    One I have learnt over the last few months, " You are NEVER too old to learn ".
    Sometimes I forget to say " Thank You " for your assistance, so here I say " A BIG Thank You. "

    Olly, I also cannot access your link?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    That's really odd. It's just a 50x50 jpg image attached to my post, in the usual way, which I can see fine.

    Hey!!!!

    I've only gone and done it!!!

    Thanks Olly, for popping the picture on a web space somewhere - I have tried a few times using the image Potholes supplied, saved as a local file, but kept on getting the dreaded Succuri page, but using an address instead seemed to sort it.


    Please, Potholes. Don't say you were only joking and didn't want it after all

    @Peter - G'day, mate!

    @Dominic - do you have moderator super powers? I didn't think we could edit profiles ...

    I don't have moderator super powers (you make me sound like Deadpool!) - most of what the mod console offers is to view only, but for some bizarre reason the option to change signatures, avatars, profile pictures and signature pictures are available. |'ve never used any of them until today - the opportunity doesn't arise too often, but I've tried it a few times with Peter's image, but kept on getting blocked by Succuri. Olly's idea to put the image on a web page set alarm bells ringing, but I must admit I nearly fell off my chair when it actually worked ...

    Dear DominicB

    Thank you for that.

    You must have super powers, Now all I need to do is get it up in the Photo region.

    Many thanks to all

    Peter
