I put a photo on Photobucket site in library. Made sure it was sized (60X46). Copied the link. Pasted it in the custom avatar link box but when uploaded I get message that the link is not accessible?

What am I missing?

Does the link you pasted look like mine?

I forget how or which sharing link to use. My guess is use the "Direct" Link shown in the second picture.

didn't work.

Mine looks like yours but comes out .com/user instead of .com/albums.

I'll keep trying being new to photobucket.

Edit- Nope I'm doing something wrong. I think you need to click on the share option but it's not available in the share box shown for your album. Hmmm!

Edit- Damn Photobucket sucks big donkey balls anymore!

Yep that is the photo.

I think I set up sharing on photobucket correctly. Then I copied the link from the sharing box for HTML and pasted to sig avatar. Still says link not accessible.

Did you copy the Direct Link of the picture you uploaded to Photobucket?

Well, I tried again. This time when I clicked on the direct link in share, and instead of it blueing out where I used ctrl c to copy, it gave me a "copied" message. Then using ctrl v to paste into avatar, it worked.

Go figure

One last thing, be sure the size of the picture you're using is 60 x 60. People on smart phones get affected by big pictures.
