As always: BACKUP YOUR DATABASE !!!!!!

Step 1. Download the attachment & unzip it.
Step 2. Upload the content of the root directory to your site
Step 3. MAKE SURE you are in the prosilver style yourself (or copy the template file to the correct style/{STYLE}/template directory)
Step 4. Run the page from your browser by selecting http://{YOUR_SITE_URL}/avatar_convert.php
Step 5. Check the results on the page (it's doing the best possible thing it can, but not all old avatars will be converted)
Step 6. Delete the uploaded files from your board (they aren't needed anymore)

Good luck! :good:


ps: patsi, thnx for testing...;)


thanks man it's worked

I get the same errors when I upload an avatar too. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I got an abrupt response there. Basically, I followed this - although my users avatar problem was a long time ago. My problem is that I cannot upload group avatars and my members cannot upload there own avatars. Im on RC4 now... please help - Im getting sick of the attitude on the official boards.
