Post avator
I'm a little confused on how to get an image from another site to show up as my avator. I'm pretty new to message boards could some one give me a little feed back on this?

I'm not sure but I thought it was something like this:

"[url]http://www.detroitlions.com/bio.cfm?bio_id=272&season=7/photos/athletes/Williams_Mike.jpg" width="640" height="30"[/url]"

I believe that if you put that link in the Avatar area on the Profile page (without the [url][/url]) it should work.

The easiest way is to become a memeber of www.photobucket.com (IT'S FREE). Once you become a member go to the photo you want as your avatar and save it to "my pictures" under documents. Then open up photobucket and browse for pictures and access the photo you saved in "my pictures". Once you have that photo in your album there is a url site underneath it. Copy and paste that url site to the avatar section of this website and it should work!!

IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO ASK!! :D

Is this the pic you wanted?

I'm not the best at this but here goes.

This only works for a picture somewhere on the net. Not one in your PC. If you want to use one in your PC you have to upload it to the net using an image host site. (Like... http://imageshack.us/ )

1) Right click on the pic you like.

2) Select 'properties'.

3) When the properties window pops up, Highlight with cursor the URL.

4) Hit Ctrl-C. (copy) It's now copied to memory.

5) Go to LionBacker Profile screen. Find 'Link to off-site Avatar:' (at the bottom).

6) Click cursor in that box.

7) Hit Ctrl-V. (paste) It's now pasted in there.

8 ) Click on Submit.

9) Pray.



I hope that works for you.

Now, please don't ask me how to do a signature. I've tried for months and can't do it.
