Hello everybody, I am 59 years old and just picked up a right handed guitar. I played left handed in my teen and into my twenties. I lost my right pointer finger #1 to guitar players. So glad I found Justin on line. How does one use an avitar here? Please

Welcome to the forum Robert. The process to create an avatar no longer works on this site. Hasn't worked for a long time. Only users that created one prior, have one now.

Enjoy the site. Lots of terrific folks here.

Ability to upload images to smf is very easy and can be found in the admin-area of smf.
U can see it's already implemented when writing a post, u see "attachments and other options" below the textfield, but u cant upload cause it's not allowed trough the admin-area.

 It's a 5-min job, and u can setup the imagesizes and weights it needs to be. Also the ability to clean the images after an amount of time to keep the size of the imagefolder to a minimum and there is an ability to set a max of pics per post.

It would be a great addition to the forum to be able to post images. Will add to the usibility and the accessability of the forum, i tend to not post cause of the missing ability to post images and the 'work' it takes to post a images trough other ways. More and more imagehosts are for paid costumors or will try to ad adds, wich can contain harmful codes. U dont want that on your forum.

There's quite a few more examples of how an attacker can abuse image uploads, but these more recent ones seemed perfect as an example of why allowing image uploads IS a security risk.
Seems i missed this one....

All admins indeed facepalmed over your answer...

ALL internetuse is a securityrisk, its just in how far it Lets it influence u. The adds on Justin’s site, wich are totally out of his control, are a way far more risk for codeinfusions than an avatar on a forum.
Do u use a pic-Blocker to block ALL pics on the internet cause it can be an infected image or do u rather use any kind of ad-Blocker? I know what all IT-specialists Will tell u.....

In my 16 years of forum-bulding i NEVER came across an infected avatar, but the number of infected Ads.....
