Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Why is there a time limit on editing post anyway?
Or at least such a short one?

Another minor question.

Why does my avatar not appear on my posts, just my user name, yet it appears in my personal details?

Have you made the correct selections in the "User Control Panel"?
The maximum file size is 19.5KB and I think yours is 23.54KB.

Regards.

Very strange. It says on the page where I set my avatar that maximum size is 100x100px or 64 kb. That is why mine was only 23kb. It is now only 15 kb!

There's a message on the bottom that says:

Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 80 by 80 pixels

Please try that size image.

Will do, but the user control panel/edit image page says:
"Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 64.0 KB (whichever is smaller)."
Seems it needs updating.

Profile picture is 100x100, but avatar is 80x80.

Done that.
Avatar is now 59x80 and 19.4 kb and upload returns "Upload of file failed."
What now?

Re: Updating sales and wanted ad status

Just a thought. You mentioned "Profile picture" and "Avatar". I assumed they were the same thing here. I have been dealing all the time with my profile picture. I assumed that was my Avatar.

I've deleted the avatar file that was causing the problem

The avatar appears on your posts in the forum. The profile image is only seen by those that go looking at your profile

The policy was meant to protect as we wanted to deter any fiddling with the details to the cost of buyers.

The change in strategy now is because we have a log of any versions of the post so we can check if any malicious changes have been made.

The system is horrendously complicated under the bonnet and so at the moment it's still not working as we would like, but the final goal is to make the title and status fully editable by the poster.
