    Failed to upload avatar from URL

    Hello, today I wanted to update my avatar to an imgur link, but to my supprise an error occured, and I could not find a way to get it to work.
    I hope you can help my somehow, other then "just use the attachment" as that's not my problem

    When editing, it looked like this:


    After hitting the submit button, I got this error:


    The image link is here, and the dimensions where 150x150 with a file size of 39.3 KB


    Thanks in advance,

    Wish I could, but I've had that same issue for years, only saving to PC and uploaded that way works for me.

    My plan is to create a simple php script that returns a random image from an array, this way, every time someone loads my profile I'll have a different picture just like my signature has.
    (all similair but different color scheme, in this case.)

    But this would not be possible if I upload the picture to the site.

    Some issues/bugs simply aren't fixable by anyone else but the actual VBulletin developers. Just do as Liz said and you should be fine.
    If you need help with anything, feel free to PM/VM me about it.

    Please make sure to always ask me for a confirmation PM/VM before proceeding with any deal that supposedly involves me.

    Point is that, if I can upload trough URL I can have it so that whenever you refresh the page/revisit another one, my logo will not be green, but blue, yellow, red, magenta, lime, green, anything.

    I found this on the VBulletin forum:
    confirm that you have set the permissions for folder customavatars. it must have read/write/exec permissions
    But this dates back to 2008 and the devs where aware of the bug, I assume more recent updates have this fixed? I hope that whoever moderates this site can check on it / see if there are updates avalible.

    Thanks for your help anyway.

    Uploading of avatars via URL is disabled by us.

    It will not be re-enabled any time soon (as long as we are on VB).
