I have noticed that Blake, and the Catskinner, and a couple others have a nice picture that shows up next to their posts every time they do one. I would like to do that. Can anyone help me with that ? Can you change it every once in a while ? Thanks,  Eric

It's called an Avatar. First you need to create a picture that is 150 pixels wide maximum and upload it to a site that can be pointed to with a url. Then you go to your Control Panel/Options and put that url in the avatar line. You can change it anytime you wish.

Hope that helps,
Blake

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.

I guess the part I don't know how to do is find a site that I can up load a picture to. Could my pictures in the photo album be considered that site ? thanks

Yes, but they may be too big. The thumbnail would work, but I'm not sure if you can select just that in the url. If you need me to, I can set up a place just to keep avatar pictures for anyone who needs it. Does your local isp give you any space? You could use that too.

I wouldn't be surprised if my local isp does provide space, but there again, I don't know how to up load to it, or even how to find out if they have space available.

You can get a free yahoo mail account and they will give you space to upload your pics to a photo album. Then just point to it.:D
