    I put my image in a hosting site (Imageshack), followed the directions and came up with this link for "Hotlinks for Forum (1)":

    GlockTalk tells me:

    Error - cannot find an image at the specified URL. Please make sure that you have entered a valid URL.

    Where am I going wrong?


    Thanks,

    In your Users Control panel, click on Change options.

    At the bottom you will see avatar information. If you have more than 10 posts, you can get your own avatar. It has to be no larger than 100 pixels x 100 pixels and 6KB.
