FAO People confused about Avatars and Signatures

Ok here goes, a Step by Step guide.

AVATARS
1/ Go to your MSN Highland Pony album. Choose the photo you would like to have as your Avatar, right click on the thumbnail (i.e on the Small Piccie, do not enlarge !!)




2/ Go to Properties, and then highlight the URL and Copy the URL.




3/ Go to your Profile and Scroll down till you see this -



(It has come out small but you get the idea)

Anyway, Paste your URL in the box where the BLACK arrow is pointing, and Viola! You should have an Avatar!




SIGNATURES
1/Go to your MSN Highland Pony album. Choose the photo you would like to have as your Avatar, right click on the thumbnail (i.e on the Small Piccie, do not enlarge !!)




2/ Go to Properties, and then highlight the URL and Copy the URL.




3/ Go to your Profile and Scroll down till you see this -



then, put [img] URL [/img] But Without spaces in between the Url and Img tags.




So - [img] http://sc.groups.msn.com/tn/F0/61/HighlandPonyAlbum/39/9b4.jpg [/img]

With the tags joined up with the URL becomes -




Does this make sense at all, its been a very long week at school and I'm tired:heh

Just to add, do not press enter between you url's for signatures as they will go down the way, instead do nothing! Your signature space on your profil page should have a part that looks like [/img][img] You can put spaces in between and writing below.

Well done Scott! Good guide! :clappy::banana: smee xx :wavey:

Oh dear..........I'm stuck at the first sentence.........

"Go to your MSN Highland Pony album" what the heck is that ? :help:

Rebecca - 26-10-2006 at 06:13 PM

JaneIslay, If you go to the Technical Forum on the Message Boards "front page" you will find information about the albums, here is the link. You can then link from these images to the messageboard.
http://groups.msn.com/HighlandPonyAlbum/

Jill looks after the albuns so U2U her if you have queries. :hi:

Fleas - 26-10-2006 at 06:14 PM

That is a brilliant breakdown there Scott!
Jane you have to create an album - it's to do with msn, and I can only ever find it by using a link that someone has posted on here - usually a gorgeous pic of someones pony will be from their album and it should be all purple round the edges/top... go check out some piccies and hopefully you will see what I mean or someone can post a link for you :thumbs:
I had a bit of trouble registering with msn to get an album as my delightful lodger had registered himself with my address :eeek::angryfire: got round it by changing the passwords and locking him (computer wise...) out so he couldn't access his college work... :blush:

Fleas - 26-10-2006 at 06:15 PM

there you go, thanks Rebecca! :cheers:

JaneIslay - 29-10-2006 at 09:44 PM

I managed to put something into the signature bit - but can't seem to manage the Avatar thing - even tho it was the same url ! I got the MSM album set up ok.

Could someone possibly explain what the U2U thing is please :hail:

mulletsmum - 29-10-2006 at 09:47 PM

It is like e-mail within the board. Go tot the top of the board page - right hand side - there is a line of things
[Logout - U2U - Control Panel / Options]
CLick on U2u - another window opens and go from there - you might find one from me if I am quick!

JaneIslay - 29-10-2006 at 10:11 PM

Mulletsmum - I found your email in the U2U thingy but I'm absolutely darned if I can find a way to reply !

guess I'm just too old to do all this stuff :(

Claire - 30-10-2006 at 08:53 AM

Jane your avatar was exactly right, except for %20 which somehow found its way onto the end of the code. I removed that and it worked :thumbs:

JaneIslay - 30-10-2006 at 02:20 PM

Oh thank you Claire - I wondered how it suddenly appeared overnight ! Now I'll need to sort out the signature bits.
