User Documentation

An "Avatar" is a graphical representation of the user. It is used in the forums to identify the user when he posts a message in a forum. If the user is anonymous or didn't select it's avatar no avatar is displayed.

To select your avatar as a registered user click the "pick avatar link" in the user preferences page.

You can select an avatar from the library (there're more than 500) or you can upload a picture/image to be used as your avatar (it will be resized to 45x45).

Note: A .jpg avatar did not work for me, but a .gif file did work. Better to stick with gif files for avatars.

Damian: I believe there is actually code there that says avatar has to be a gif sad

The avatar will be displayed in forum posts.

The bundled AVATARs of our friendly cartoons are now available on http://mods.tiki.org in the release of 1.9 you will be able to install them via a suitable web based mods installer.

shanew: The avatar images are no longer bundled as of 1.9RC2, nor do they appear to be at mods.tiki.org as of 2005/07/25 (Indeed, nothing appears to be at mods.tiki.org right now). They can be downloaded from CVS, however, at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/tikiwiki/_mods/avatars/tikiavatars/avatars.tar.gz
