Please, how do you do..................
« on: March 19, 2008, 06:26:27 AM »
Hello,

How you obtain success in doing the following please:

  • I optioned an Avatar, but it does not show. Are several posts necessary?
  • How do you option the question first and the answers to come underneath, instead of the other way around?

Thank you.

I am sorry that direction does not work for me.

I followed your exact direction before asking for help.  It will not work.  The Avatar I wish to use is a GIF image 6779 bytes, 90x80 pixels.  Is that too large perhaps? 

The other move was successful re the question and answer direction, thank you.

I went in and fixed it.  For some reason, the URL to the image had some image tags (the [IMG] thing) in it.
