I've got my avatar pic on my "quasi" page on Geocities, yet I can't see it.

Would it have something to do with Geocities, or trying to link remotely?

TIA for any of your support.

Change it from .gif to .txt and try again. If it works, it was Geocities blocking you.

Odd -- back at home, where I'm on now... it works fine.

However, at work, it didn't seem to work at all. I don't think a proxy would have been at odds with it, either.

It's probably cached on your home machine. It isn't working here.



Your analogy is similar to:

"They already have cars that you can drive, why not blenders?"
"I can already write with my hands, why not my pancreas?"
"They already have beef that I can eat, why not granite?"

-- my new favorite quote from Slashdot comments.

I think it might work now -- had to link the pic to the file. Trying to use the PageBuilder as a quick/easy fix, yanno.
If it works, did I mention how much I love PhotoReady? :)

You can't link remotely to Geocities images (unless you get around it by using a ".txt" extension) - if you see it, it's only because it's in your cache...believe me, nobody else is seeing it.

Anyone know how to get around (in other words, how to rename) with the .txt extension trick?

Under the File Manager, select the file and click "rename". Type the new name as ________.txt

Ok... the file manager trick has hopefully worked, and you can see the avatar.

If you can, thank you for all of your help through this flash of stupidity and cluelessness! :)
