Hello, just thought that I'd point to a bug that occured when I tried to upload an avatar.
The text said: Temporary folder could not be found. Please check your PHP installation.

So it seems that it could take a while to fix the problem. Until then you can try the option to use avatar linked to from another website.

Everytime I try to attach an image the system tells me "the image you try to attach is invalid", but why? I even tried with images I´ve already uploaded successfully earlier.

Moved your post here. We are familiar with the problem and are in process of resolving it. Not sure why this happens, but hopefully it will be soon fixed. We'll keep you posted with our progress.

The uploading problems are finally resolved. We can again upload images in posts and avatars.

Please everyone who was not able to set an avatar and used the "remote avatar" option, do upload a pic. In the near future we'll again disable the option to have your avatar as link from another website.

Hi,that's very inconvenient. Maybe your avatar does not comply with the board settings: A avatar cannot consist of more than 40960 bytes and cannot exceed the minimum of 20x20 pixels and the maximum of 150x150 pixels. So you might just have to resize your image.

Thank you for answering my question. I resized the photo several times but it still didn't work. I'll try again tomorrow.

You could of course try to upload someone else's avatar to see if it is the image or something more structural that is amiss. Also, do you get any error reports while uploading and of so, what do they say?

My Computer actually kicks me from this page while trying to upload a picture. My smartphone says the picture has an invalid filename. I don't mind staying without a Avatar :)
Thank you for your kind support

That's pretty odd. I hope to look into it later this week.

I've changed the avatar limit to 256Kb should be enough for 150x150 pixels image. If it still does not work, could you please upload your image here (in a post) and we'll see what is causing the troubles you have.
