It's all good, but why are the avatar limitations to 120x90? phpBB3 originally allows 100x100, and so does every other forum script. I mean, this is fine by me, but it was kinda weird.

I think its a nice suitable size for a forum like this. Doesn't draw the user away from what matters and thats the topic and post. If people are having problems finding avatars that fit the size Raptor has posted a load of awesome ones in the Avatar request thread.

Just wrap image tags around the URL of the picture you want on your signature. [img]"Insert%20desired%20URL%20here"[/img]

Yeah just copy the image URL that usually looks something like this: http://www.imagehost.com/hsjs/signature.png

Into image codes

Like:
Code: Select all
[img]www.imagehost.com/hsjs/signature.png[/img]
