Greetings from Heero

  • Hi everybody, I was a test dummy on Horizon's earlier efforts. Just registered.

  • Welcome back Heero!8)


    I see like me, we need to alter our profile pictures. Unlike the phpbb software, vbulletin does resize pictures, but they use a different kind of box. Gives us all something to do!


    There is a system called Gravatars, where people have just one picture for all sites, so I might install that at some point.

  • Good to be back. I get to be member #4. Seems all the sites I belong to have different avatar sizing. Fortunately I have some HP camera software that can resize things at will. I just grabbed this one from the directory that I keep the avatars in.

  • Actually you're member 3, or the second person after Little Wing to register. I've got two accounts, this and my test account.


    So a silver medal to you!8)

  • Cheers Horizon. I made my avatar a bit bigger (150-115) but it still comes out the same size in the postings. I guess something else is resizing it. Not a big issue. I bet you have a million things to do to the site. Not looking too shabby at the moment.:)

  • There is nothing in the main avatar settings to change. It's just shows where local avatars are stored.


    There is a global settings option which controls lots of different things and there are a few settings for avatars there, but nothing relevant.


    Really all settings for avatars should be in one place. I will keep looking and if I find the right settings, I'll make adjustments.

  • If I go into my user settings it's the size I uploaded so it's not being resized there. As I say it's not a big issue, just as and when.

  • Oh and I forgot to say, the theme you should be seeing for this site is called "Horizon's Style 1", well that's what I hope I've set it to! But there are lots of other themes to choose from. Click on theme at the bottom left of the page and have a look around. Plus, in your profile settings there are various customisation settings that can be changed for colours of the site etc. I've not looked at this yet, so don't know how well it works. Please post in the feedback area any thoughts, suggestions you may have.


    Still waiting for the vbulletin response. But the way, does the site remember you when you renter it, or do you have to login again?

  • Shows Horizon's Style 1. Site remembers me on this machine but I seemed to have trouble logging in yesterday evening on my laptop but that might just have been me, the OH and a bottle of wine. :o
